Dead Space 3 will be a sequel to Dead Space and Dead Space 2 which is maded by Visceral Games and Electronic Arts. Dead Space 3 was recently confirmed on May 29, 2012 by EA and will make its first appearance E3 2012. Previously, several leaks from verifiable sources made information on the project available. Dead Space 3 will be available on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Dead Space 3 Is Set on an Ice Planet
Dead Space 3 begins as Isaac Clarke crash lands onto Tau Volantis, “an icy planet where Isaac Clarke has to wade through white-out blizzard conditions.” Ellie and others are alive in a waystation on the planet.
A New Enemy: The Hive Mind
Although Isaac encounters taller versions of Dead Space 2′s childlike Pack Enemies or a set of legs with tentacles in place of its torso, the fleshy demons of Dead Space, Necromorphs, aren’t the only enemy Isaac fights on the ice world. For the first time in the franchise, he’ll fight human beings. Heavily armored soldiers pack guns and grenades to use against you. Of course, these guys become Necromorphs as well.
As he makes his way through open, icy areas, steel walls sometimes form around Isaac, and enemies attack from various angles. A spinning drill, like a lethal top, may also make its way onto the playing field, slicing players to pieces if they come in contact with the always-moving object.
One of the more spectacular encounters features Isaac shooting a spider-like creature in its orange-tinted weak spot, as well as shooting arms and protruding sacs. This big thing will eat Isaac whole if he gets too close, so he’s forced to run around the arena and attack from a distance. It may also make multiple appearances — it disappears into a cavern once it’s taken enough of a beating.
Skyscraper-sized enemies may also come into play. During one scene, Isaac observes a massive worm-like beast bursting from the ice beneath a cliff.
Dead Space 3 will have Co-Op
Dead Space 3 will have drop-in, drop-out co-op. Isaac Clarke will, if players choose, fight alongside a man with a gnarly scar on his face, an engineering RIG of his own, and glowing red eyes peering from his helmet. During single-player, this character acts as Isaac’s guide.
The cooperative mode mirrors the single-player campaign, but Isaac’s story changes to accommodate it. At one point in Dead Space 3, Isaac and his counterpart stumble, wounded, bloody, and missing chunks of armor, out of burnt wreckage together. In single-player, the same scene happens without the other character. While Isaac may have a psychological breakdown and experience hallucinations on his own, certain traumatic events don’t occur with someone by his side.
Players will also work together (using Telekinesis, for instance) to interact with pieces of the environment. In addition, you’ll be able to share ammo with and heal your co-op partner, although there is no revive system — once someone’s down and dead, both players reload the last checkpoint.
Dead Space 3 Characters
The main character in Dead Space 2 is once again Isaac Clarke. Isaac’s armor in Dead Space 3 reflects the slender, angular design of his Dead Space 2 RIG, which is reflected in his co-op partner as well. Clarke is still struggling with his psyche, and experiences hallucinations of monsters. Ellie from Dead Space 2 will also return in Dead Space 3.
- Jennifer – Jennifer is a survivor in the outpost on Tau Volantis.
- Unidentified Guide – Isaac’s companion and guide will also play his cooperative partner. This character has a scar on his face and an engineering RIG. This character may be John Carver.
Dead Space 3 Co-op Partner
This video introduces a character named John Carver, who may be the co-op character in Dead Space 3. The short released by EA on May 29, 2012 features a character who fits the description leaked previously (“a man with a gnarly scar on his face, an engineering RIG of his own, and glowing red eyes peering from his helmet.”) to a tee.
the character is Earthgov Sergeant John Carver. Carver “witnesses an attack on the Marker Site he guards which changes his life forever,” leading him to “fight his way through a colony now in complete chaos as he begins to discover how important he is in fighting the Necromorph plague.”
Most importantly, the description notes that “this is just the start of John Carver’s saga in the Dead Space Universe.”
Dead Space 3 Weapons
Alternate-fire in Dead Space 3 functions much differently than before. Additionally, the workbench has changed.
- Plasma Cutter – The Plasma Cutter, whose default horizontal shot changed to vertical, is an entirely different weapon now. Its alt-fire mode now has a similar knockback effect to the Force Gun.
- Pulse Rifle – The Pulse Rifle features the saw-blades as a secondary firing mode. It’s possible this is the default loadout for the weapon, but it could also point to custom weapon combinations within the new workbench.
Dead Space 3 Abilities
In Dead Space 3, Isaac has abilities beyond the weapons available to him.
Crouching – Crouching is one of Isaac’s most notable new abilities, and it functions as his means of cover as he hides behind small objects. The left/right evasive roll is unquestionably the most significant change we know of in his new skill set. It appears Isaac is more nimble out in the cold.
Telekinesis functions in a more complex manner, as you’ll be capable of rotating items rather than just holding them, which plays into Dead Space 3′s puzzles.
