EA has released a new trailer for the upcoming Dead Space remake, due out later this month. The Dead Space launch trailer shows Isaac and company once again arriving on the USG Ishimura, and gives us a more detailed look at many of the game’s characters and story. This coincides with a new blog post from Motive detailing how the story has evolved from the original game.
“All departments approached it with the same philosophy,” says lead level designer Catherine Stewart. “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Overall it was about keeping the elements that made the game great and improving on those that were problematic and where we felt we could do better. It was often difficult to do that balancing act, but I think we found a really good balance.”
The studio has focused on giving some of the game’s supporting characters more time and personality, and making some changes to ensure that Dead Space is consistent with the story and continuity established since the first game’s release.
Dead Space appears on 27 January 2023 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
