Dead Space Remake Reveals First Official Gameplay Trailer; Improvements Listed, Voiced Isaac, New Rooms & More

Publisher EA and developer Motive have revealed the first official trailer for the upcoming Dead Space Remake. The title’s enhanced graphical fidelity and immersion are primarily highlighted throughout this video alongside teased new narrative elements to expand the original’s story.

Further, there are several detailed improvements players can look forward to, listed below:

  • The Peeling System: Necromorphs, monstrosities unlike anything seen before, have been reconstructed around the new Peeling System, which introduces layered flesh, tendons and bones that break, tear and shatter in shocking new ways. And while strategy is key, players will also experience increased opportunities for creativity in how they utilize their variety of unique weapons and abilities to combat these horrifying enemies.
  • The Intensity Director: Dead Space’s beautifully crafted, equally haunting world has long been easy for players to get lost in, but now players will truly feel the weight of every mysterious step Isaac takes. The new Intensity Director dynamically adjusts what shows up in Isaac’s path, from Necromorph spawns and how they choose to attack them, to environmental effects such as light, smoke, particles and sound. Isaac’s heartbeat, breathing, and exertions also adjust based on his stress level to provide players direct feedback into his mental, emotional and physical state.
  • An Enhanced Engineering Fantasy: Without weapons or backup, Isaac is forced to defend himself against the Necromorphs by leveraging high-tech mining tools to strategically dismember nightmarish creatures, solve puzzles on his thrilling journey and turn the Ishimura’s malfunctioning systems to his advantage. Originally a silent protagonist, players will now hear more from the beloved engineer via new narrative enrichments voiced by Gunner Wright, the original voice of Isaac in Dead Space 2 (2011) and Dead Space 3 (2013).
  • A Fully Interconnected Ishimura: From the start screen to the end credits, players will confront the frighteningly tight corridors and shadowed hallways of the USG Ishimura without a single load screen or camera cut ever breaking the immersion. This enormous mining ship has been restored for the remake with new rooms, routes and obstacles while permitting seamless exploration with new UI map controls and an improved locator.

Dead Space Remake will launch on January 27, 2023, for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC. The game is being developed using the Frostbite game engine and plans to stay faithful to the original title with enhanced audio, visuals, and gameplay. In addition, a considerable degree of immersion has been continually emphasized, with there being an extensive amount of detail.

During gameplay, players assume the role of Isaac Clarke; an engineer sent on a mission to repair the USG Ishimura. However, when he arrives, he finds the crew has been slaughtered and infected by an alien threat. Further, Isaac’s partner, Nicole, is also lost on board, which leads him to venture forth to find answers using whatever tools he can to survive. The original game quickly became a beloved horror adventure, so here’s hoping this remake can live up to the hype.
