Dead Space Remake Announced for Next-Gen Consoles and PC
Dead Space is returning, over 10 years after the game’s original release. An upcoming remake was announced yesterday at EA Play Live 2021, where a teaser trailer reveals the dimly lit USG Ishimura. The sci-fi horror classic will only be released on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC, so it should be a fairly substantial upgrade over the original from a technical standpoint.
The remake aims at harnessing next-gen consoles and the Frostbite game engine to improve visuals and other gameplay elements while highlighting the original story. Motive Studios’ new version of Dead Space will followf the storyline of the original game.
Well, color me shocked, not only did EA NOT leave Dead Space in the gutter like all the other studios and franchises they've acquired and eventually killed off, they give us a pretty damn awesome-looking (or, should I say, sounding) remake of the original game in the style of REmake 2.
Give credit where credit's due, they did a very good thing with a beloved IP, now hopefully they won't sneak on-disc DLC or some other shady underhanded stuff like they did Dead Space 3.
