As a final surprise of the EA Play Live 2021 show, the US company has officially announced the return of the horror splatter saga of Dead Space with a Remake nextgen entrusted to the EA Motive team.
Developed by drawing on the power of the graphics engine Frostbite Engine, the updated version of Dead Space will be rebuilt from scratch from EA Motive to offer what, according to the authors of the Montreal subsidiary, will be an even deeper and more immersive gaming experience.
More than a “simple Remaster, it will therefore be a Remake which will bring improvements to the dynamics of the game and, obviously, many innovations to the graphics sector, all while respecting the visual, narrative and playful experience of the original splatter horror masterpiece.
Isaac Clarke is a simple engineer on a mission to repair a large spaceship, the USG Ishimura, only to discover that something has gone terribly wrong. The entire crew has been exterminated and infected with an alien species … and Isaac’s beloved companion, Nicole, is missing aboard.
Now Isaac is left alone with his tools and his technical skills and will have to try to unravel the mystery behind the nightmare that has been unleashed aboard the Ishimura. Trapped alongside hostile creatures called “necromorphs,” Isaac faces a battle for survival, not only against the ship’s growing horrors, but also against its increasingly fragile sanity.
The announcement video of the re-release of Dead Space then confirms the nature nextgen of the project but does not provide further details on the timing of marketing on PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X / S.
