It may not have a release window yet, but EA has released an exclusive first look at the Dead Space remake. While it's not exactly a full gameplay reveal, it is an indication of what players can expect.
Running in the Frostbite engine, a few glimpses of the game can be seen during the developer live stream. However, the team was careful to reiterate this is not a finished product, but instead a very, very early look at development.
The aim of the remake is to enrich the original experience, while also making it relevant to today's standards. Players can expect to see the story fans have come to love expanded in whole new ways, as it works to tie in the sequels and other elements of the lore.
You can see the protagonist Issac stroll through the environment in a few instances, showcasing the new lighting, fog and shadow effects. A comparison image really showcases just how improved the remake is through its visuals:
Of course, what would Dead Space be without some dismemberment? The team at EA Motive were also happy to show some of the effects and feedback players will receive when blasting away Necromorphs. It all seems very satisfying.
Another notable focus of the stream was the emphasis on zero gravity moments. As players are able to explore fully 360-degree environments, the team at EA Motive has gone back to the original build to expand on the ways players can do just that. You'll find new pathways and locations previously not seen in the first game.
Everything about the Dead Space remake seems to be coming along nicely. While it's too early to have a definitive idea of what the final release will be like, it's been great to have an insight into the game's development. The team seems to be truly embracing what fans love about the series, building upon everything it can.
We can't wait!
