Dead Space Returns With Co-Op & More

Mothers: prepare to be upset. Again. Visceral has confirmed that a new Dead Space game is in the works, and Isaac Clarke’s life isn’t looking any less gruesome.

Dead Space 3 finds Isaac stranded on Tau Volantis, a hostile planet rimed with ice and infested with a new, more powerful breed of necromorph. Here, you’ll fight against subzero temperatures, omnipresent danger, and the maddening desolation of Tau’s snowbound landscapes. But you don’t have to fight alone.

For the first time in Dead Space history, you’ll be able to team up against the terror. Drop in or drop out of the game at will using a fully-integrated co-op system where Isaac is joined by Earthgov Sergeant John Carver.

“For fans that love playing alone in the dark, they can still have the classic Dead Space experience that makes the franchise so unique,” says Steve Papoutsis, Vice President of Visceral Games. “Likewise, players that want to share that immersive and intense experience with a friend now have that option thanks to the addition of co-op.”

Dead Space 3 will launch (rather appropriately) in the dead of winter: February 2013. Pre-order Dead Space 3 on Origin today.

    It isn't an EA game if you don't put Online features in it??? Right???? Will see not certainly a D1 buy for me. Will wait for review on the single-player aspect.

    I am cautiously waiting to see the single player campaign. I hope that the single player campaign is not the afterthought for the co-op play. Dead Space 1 & 2 are my most prized games in my library.
