After being heavily rumored for months now, a new Dead Space game was officially unveiled at EA’s Play Live event today. EA Motive, known for Star Wars Squadrons, is taking the reins on remaking the popular sci-fi horror game. No release date is known at this point, but we do know the Dead Space remake will be exclusive to next-gen consoles, meaning it won’t be available for the PS4 or Xbox One.
The reveal trailer, showcasing in-engine footage, does a masterful job of evoking the game’s fear-inducing atmosphere with its dark visuals, haunting music, and creepy alien sound effects. The trailer ends with a close up of “cut off their limbs” written in blood on a wall, which truly tells you all you need to know about the game.
IGN’s Johnathon Dornbush sat down with Senior Producer Philippe Ducharme and Creative Director Roman Campos-Oriola and has the scoop on the remake. The developers are “completely rebuilding and remaking the game in EA’s Frostbite engine,” making this a true remake, like Square Enix’s Final Fantasy VII remake and not just a remaster with polished textures and better framerates. “[W]e’re building on top of the original and recreating it,” Ducharme said, and Motive is “honoring the legacy of the original game.” You can head here to read the full profile on the Dead Space remake.
