The much-awaited gameplay trailer of the similarly much-awaited remake of the survival horror video game, Dead Space, is finally here. However, the game is not set to release until the 27th of January, 2023.
The upcoming iconic survival game is currently being developed by Motive Studio, but it was first reported back in July of 2021 by GamesBeat. Here, there will almost be a two-year difference between the first reports about the game’s rumored (at the time) development and its (supposed) official release.
The highly-anticipated classic sci-fi game is said to retain the same plot as its predecessor, and Motive Studio is currently using Electronic Art’s Frostbite engine to develop the game, a game engine developed by DICE that is behind other well-known games by EA, such as the Madden NFL and Battlefield series. Fortunately for the fans of the franchise and haters of microtransactions, this upcoming remake will not be featuring any microtransactions unlike its predecessor, Dead Space 3.
The gameplay trailer features various nostalgic references along with an amazing graphics update. It also shows plenty of familiar faces and beings, most especially the main protagonist of the game, Isaac Clarke. Although, this time around, he isn’t mute anymore and could actually talk and narrate stuff that adds some spice to the game’s narrative. Moreover, some of the familiar bosses that look better and scarier (for some, at least) are shown, especially towards the end of the trailer.
Senior Producer Philippe Ducharme also shared some interesting tidbits about the game via their official blog post, such as being true to the original material and overall player experience.
“We look at the original game with the utmost respect. So the core foundations will remain the same. However, we are making several enhancements to the experience to make it enticing for both new players and returning ones.”
“We’re also actually creating the entire game as one sequential shot. From the moment you start the game to the moment you end the game, there are no camera cuts or load screens—unless you die.'
