DEAD SPACE: EA Finally Reveals Next-Gen Remake Of The Sci-Fi Classic Survival Horror Game

Get ready to survive the living nightmare of Dead Space all over again, as EA has finally confirmed the remake of his sci-fi classic survival horror game rebuilt for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

Dead Space, the worst kept secret heading into EA Play Live 2021 this week, has been revealed. Electronic Arts closed out its summer showcase with the long-awaited reveal, confirming that the project in development is a remake of the sci-fi classic survival horror game.

Dead Space is in development at EA Motive and is being completely rebuilt from the ground up for next-gen consoles. Powered by the Frostbite game engine, it will only be available for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, allowing for the developers to truly maximize the power of next-gen tech and raise the level of horror and immersion.

Originally released in 2008, Dead Space is a crtiically acclaimed science fiction horror that won multiple awards and sparked an entire series of games. However, the first game was truly the most nightmarish. Based on the trailer for this remake, the tools at EA Motive's disposal will make that living nightmare more realistic than ever.

The game follows everyman engineer Isaac Clarke on a mission to repair a vast, sprawling starship, the USG Ishimura, only to discover something has gone horribly wrong. 

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. 

“The Dead Space franchise made a huge impact on the survival horror genre when it was released 12 years ago, and I came to Motive as a fan first to specifically work on this game,” said Phillippe Ducharme, Senior Producer of Dead Space. “We have a passionate team at Motive who are approaching this remake as a love letter to the franchise. 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.”

Unfortunately, no release date was provided which means we probably shouldn't expect Dead Space to arrive until late next year, at the earliest.
