If true: Dead space is coming back. Finally, after a long series of rumors and clues, Isaac Clarke will return in a remake “rebuilt from scratch” using the Frostbite engine. Electronic Arts confirmed its existence today during EA Play Live 2021, and released a creepy teaser trailer to bring reality home.
Don’t expect major changes to the story of the original game. According to the game description, we will once again put on Isaac’s space boots as he explores the spaceship, the USG Ishimura. The Dead space The remake will follow many of the rhythms of the original’s story and gameplay. Aboard the Ishimura, you are faced with the sad reality that its population has been reduced to The thing-Weird creatures called necromorphs. Survival consists of turning engineering tools into weapons, cutting the limbs of the necromorphs while collecting ammunition and drops of money.
“Isaac Clarke is an ordinary engineer on a mission to repair a huge and sprawling spacecraft, the USG Ishimura, only to find that something went terribly wrong,” the game’s description reads. “The ship’s crew has been slaughtered and infected by some alien scourge … and Isaac’s beloved companion, Nicole, is lost somewhere on board.”
