Dead Space 3 has four unlockable game modes

0

Permadeath in Dead Space, anyone?

Dead Space 3 executive producer Steve Papoutsis has shared details on four unlockable modes for the action-horror game, and they are not for the faint of heart. After beating the campaign once, access will be given to New Game+, Classic, Pure Survival, and Hardcore.

Classic mode is single-player-only, has "classic aiming," and does away with the crafting in favor of the series' traditional weapon blueprints. In Pure Survival, enemies exclusively drop resources -- and there's no ammo, health, or weapon parts laying around, according to Papoutsis. Finally, Hardcore mode grants players a single life for the full campaign. Just the one. I wonder if there will be an unlockable for completion?

Leading up to the release of Dead Space 3, there have been things said by the team at Visceral Games that haven't gone over too well with the blog-reading crowd. I'm trying to not let this stuff affect my enjoyment of the game -- to let it stand completely on its own, for better or worse -- but it's not been easy. This latest news, however, is a step up.
