Dead Space Remake Announced With Stunning First Footage (VIDEO)
The arguable crown jewel of this year’s EA Play Live proceedings, a Dead Space remake was formally announced at the event with an appropriately creepy first look at in-engine footage. Underway from Star Wars Battlefront II and Squadrons developer Motive Studios, the title is touted as being “completely rebuilt from the ground up” in the Frostbite Engine and is set to offer “a deeper and more immersive experience” from the original 2008 horror classic.
Releasing for PC and next-gen consoles, the re-release is said to include “jaw-dropping visual fidelity and improvements to gameplay,” while also “staying true to the original” in a significant capacity. As per an accompanying press release, Senior Producer of the Dead Space Phillippe Ducharme spoke about Motive’s intent to “modernize” the original experience and build this new remake as “a love letter” to the widely-beloved franchise.
“We have a passionate team at Motive who are approaching this remake as a love letter to the franchise,” said Ducharme.”Going back to the original and having the opportunity to do so on next-gen consoles excited everyone on the team. As we look to modernize the game, we’ve reached out to dedicated fans and invited them to provide us with feedback since the early stages of production to deliver the Dead Space game they want and for new players to enjoy as well.”
The original Dead Space was released back in 2008 and became a uniquely popular experience for its terrifying alien monsters and atmosphere of near-constant dread. Rumors of a Dead Space remake have been swirling for years, with the internet being especially set ablaze in the last few weeks. While the new reveal wasn’t entirely a surprise in that respect, the project certainly has a mighty developer on its hands with EA Motive and it’ll be interesting to see what they have in store for the reimagined adventure.
The Dead Space remake is set to release for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S.
