Electronic Arts and developer Motive have announced that the Dead Space remake will launch on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC on January 27, 2023.
The remake of the classic sci-fi survival horror game is being rebuilt from the ground up utilizing the Frostbite game engine. Players can expect enhanced audio and crisp, harrowing visuals while still enjoying the game that is remaining true to the original vision.
You can get a look at some of the work going into the visuals in the new video released today.
“Developing this remake has been a lot of fun for us at Motive, as we’re true fans of the franchise and want to treat it with the respect it deserves. It’s been equally exciting to see players’ reactions as we’re taking them on this development journey with us,” said Phillippe Ducharme, Senior Producer of Dead Space. “We’re making great progress on our road to hitting Alpha and we’re happy to announce that the game will be launching in January next year. We can’t wait for players, both old and new, to see how we’ve elevated the original experience in the remake to be just as impactful for this generation.”
Dead Space puts players in the boots of Isaac Clarke, an everyman engineer on a routine mission to fix a gigantic mining starship, the USG Ishimura. But aboard the Ishimura, a living nightmare awaits. The ship’s crew has been slaughtered and infected, and Isaac’s girlfriend, Nicole, is missing somewhere on board. Alone and trapped, with only his engineering tools and skills, Isaac faces a battle for survival – not only against terrifying monsters called Necromorphs, but his own crumbling sanity.
