Embark on a Thrilling Ride across a Frozen Necromorph-Infested Planet In EA’S Dead Space 3

Scavenge The Enemy-Infested Territory Alone Or Team Up With A Friend To Experience The Thrills – And The Chills – Together

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cut to the heart of deep space terror as Visceral Games, an Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:EA) studio, today announced that the critically acclaimed Dead Space™ series will return with Dead Space 3. Delivering award-winning suspense, horror, action and audio, Dead Space 3 will send players on an exhilarating and hair-raising new adventure in the dead of winter 2013. After crash-landing on a hostile new planet known as Tau Volantis, hero Isaac Clarke discovers that this planet could be the key to ending the Necromorph infestation. In his violent hunt for answers, Isaac must battle subzero, icy conditions and deadly, highly-evolved enemies including all-new Necromorphs, gigantic boss creatures and even misguided zealot humans. Fortunately, Isaac is not alone. Players can choose to team-up with a friend anytime in the game with the fully integrated drop-in/drop-out co-op feature. Players that choose to take down the terror together will experience additional story details and gameplay mechanics only found when playing as the co-op character, Earthgov Sergeant John Carver.

Steve Papoutsis, Vice President and General Manager of Visceral Games and Executive Producer on Dead Space 3, said “Dead Space 3 will deliver action and horror on a scale that far exceeds anything we’ve done before. The game will range from the depths of space and tight, indoor corridors to a harsh new planet with explorable environments that offer new challenges. For fans that love playing alone in the dark, they still can have the classic Dead Space experience that makes the franchise so unique. 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. Either way, the action is intense, the adventure is breathtaking, and the thrills are unforgettable.”

Since the series debut in 2008, Dead Space has been one of EA’s top rated wholly-owned intellectual properties. With close to 100 industry awards and an average critic score of 89*, Dead Space is loved by videogame fans the world over. In 2009, EA launched Dead Space Extraction, a prequel to the original Dead Space that expanded the fiction and brought the franchise to the Wii™. In 2011, EA launched Dead Space 2 where hero Isaac Clarke returned for another heart-pounding adventure and was heralded as one of the top games of 2011 by Seth Schiesel from the New York Times’ and has received over 70 scores of 90+ from top gaming outlets such as Official Xbox Magazine, Playstation: The Official Magazine and Game Informer.

Dead Space 3 will be on display at the EA booth #1601 South Hall during the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) from June 5 – 7, 2012 at the L.A. Convention Center.

Dead Space 3 will be available February 2013 for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system and the PC.

I'm gonna play wait and see. I loved the first two. They haven't done anything to put me off yet. I'll just have faith that it'll still be Dead Space.

And of course part of any horror game is feeling alone and outnumbered. So adding a buddy further nullifies any sense of horror accomplished in the prior games. I am not hopeful for this games prospects. :(

As far as I know, co-op is supposed to be optional. And the 2nd player won't even be forced on you so you can solo if you want. I hope that's correct.

I love it, more snow/ice planets for my needs.

still same lame main hero who ruined first 2 games for me, I see. Alright, well at least maybe there'll be better physics this time and corpses (I mean dead dead corpses) won't be jumping around when I touch them...

Very interesting, I think that now that it's a cooperative game, it will be more enjoyable the fact that it won't be a dark survival horror like the first one.

Anyone found amusing that Dead Space 3 reminds of Lost Planet and Lost Planet 3 reminds of Dead Space? XD

About the game

What's up?
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 Wow, i just realized south park its going for a 3rd E3, that's rough (7 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @GriftGFX: Im talking about games that sp is clearly not the main focus i guess. Evolving, mp based especially coop is where Ubisoft is going all in (10 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Hope they can show us something from BGE2 but i really doubt it. Hopefully their ''one more thing'' game this year will be more interesting than last year though, sjeesh. (11 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @GriftGFX: Its that they need to have more sp games to balance their lineup. The last games that was sp only was syndicate in 2015. I hope for a new ubiart game at e3 at least (16 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @AndreasZ94: Ghost Recon has a campaign. It's not an online/service shooter. I don't see what's wrong with them making MP games... I guess you don't like them? (22 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker But all of that remains to be seen. Spencer says he does want story driven games on Xbox, but it seems it won't be like how Sony does it. Games like Horizon and God of War(likely) being SP only. (23 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 Sony has invested so much in aaa studios that are great at making these kind of games that it would be dumb to change that when its working even if they are not making the money of service type games (23 minutes ago)
