At EA Play 2021, EA announced that a Dead Space Remake is in development by Motive Studios, and it will release on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
This remake of the classic sci-fi survival horror game is “completely rebuilt from the ground up” and uses DICE’s Frostbite engine. And given that the game will release only on the now current-gen consoles, the Dead Space remake promises to feature more impressive graphics, along with various gameplay improvements.
The original Dead Space was released back in 2008 for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. When it released, the game received critical acclaim for its gameplay and atmosphere. EA then released two follow-up Dead Space titles in 2011 and 2013.
Dead Space’s story is described by EA as:
“Isaac Clarke is an everyman engineer on a mission to repair a vast, sprawling starship, the USG Ishimura, only to discover something has gone horribly wrong. The ship’s crew has been slaughtered and infected by some alien scourge…and Isaac’s beloved partner, Nicole, is lost somewhere on board.
Now Isaac is alone with only his tools and engineering skills as he attempts to uncover the nightmarish mystery of what happened aboard the Ishimura. Trapped with hostile creatures called “necromorphs”, Isaac faces a battle for survival, not only against the escalating terrors of the ship, but his own crumbling sanity.”
Currently, there’s no word yet on a release date for the Dead Space remake.
