EA and Motive Studio have unveiled a new trailer and information for the upcoming Dead Space Remake. The title’s producer walks viewers through specific parts of this remake, highlighting the various changes made.
The Hanger at the start of Chapter 3 is showcased as being flyable and far more open than the original. Chapter navigation without loading screens or camera cutaways is integral to this ambitious reimagining. Additionally, the tram is not the sole way to traverse between chapters. Instead, each area is seamlessly interconnected.
Another newly introduced system in this remake is the “Intensity Director,” where players who backtrack or simply explore the ship more than strictly necessary will have completely unique gameplay experiences than those who don’t. Different enemies, ambiances, and lighting will initiate in these scenarios, making the Ishimura vessel unpredictable and challenging.
Moreover, additional context, detail, and depth have been given to Objectives to further flesh out particular events. Dynamic smoke has been added to the Contamination Room, for instance, to enhance the tension and claustrophobia. The Lurkers are made more dangerous by extension as well. The Centrifuge has received considerable new detail, so it would be imposing and tell its own story. Lastly of note is that flying in zero gravity amplifies the importance of spatial awareness during combat.

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.
