“Get your first look at Dead Space gameplay”
A Dead Space remake trailer is coming on Tuesday October 4 at 11AM ET, and it’ll be our first actual look at what the re-release has in store for us.
The news comes by way of the game’s official Twitter account, which simply notes the date and time, as well as a brief text teaser. Here’s all the info we have at the moment, as well as a reiterated release date confirmation:
“Get your first look at Dead Space gameplay and prepare to uncover the mystery aboard the USG Ishimura when the game launches on January 27, 2023.”
As you may recall, we got an “early look” at the Dead Space remake roughly a year ago, but this one promises the “first official look at gameplay.” This will likely include some nuanced nods to the “Dead Space 2 inspired zero-G movement,” as well as the updated dismemberment system.
Since more and more publishers have gotten into the remaster/remake game, the space is decidedly crowded, but the reaction to Dead Space 2023 has been mostly positive so far. They even confirmed a lack of microtransactions a year ago! Smart move. It also helps that this particular game was widely liked at launch, and is from 2008: which feels like legitimate remake territory.
Remaking a popular series like this also lends itself to continued side projects of re-releases; in this case, leading into Dead Space 2 and Dead Space 3. If they can improve some things with the third entry the second time around (ha, video games in 2022 in a nutshell), they could have a big winner with re-selling this trilogy.
