Details surrounding the next “Dead Space” game are slim. The trailer doesn’t provide much insight into how it will play, but perhaps the video’s description can offer a few clues.
It’s probably safe to assume that if you’ve played the older games, you’ll be familiar with the remake. This one promises “to offer a deeper and more immersive experience,” utilizing EA’s Frostbite Engine to build an entirely new rendition of the original story from scratch.
The game will follow a lone engineer named Isaac Clarke who works for a spaceship that’s been taken over by alien creatures known as “necromorphs.” He must “battle for survival, not only against the escalating terrors of the ship, but his own crumbling sanity.” On top of that, he is on the lookout for his “beloved partner, Nicole” while trying to figure out how the ship fell to the necromorphs.
More than likely, you’ll have to fight off these creatures while conducting repairs to the ship. The description explains that “Isaac is alone with only his tools and engineering skills,” which might hint at some crafting mechanics. That’s all there is for now, but hopefully more details will emerge in the near future.
