The Dead Space Remake was revealed via an extremely brief teaser trailer which closed the EA Play broadcast in July. While the first teaser confirmed the long-rumored title was definitely in the works, we only got a tiny snippet of an infamous hallway recorded within the game engine. We've yet to see any actual footage of gameplay.
Developer Motive Studio previously worked on Star Wars Squadrons, and development of the Dead Space remake is being led by Eric Baptizat, former game director for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. The new version of the game will be built on the Frostbite engine, and may also include content which was cut from the original 2008 release. It’s due to release on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC at an unspecified date.
While this broadcast does promise a first look at the title, it’s expected that the Dead Space remaster is a long way from release, and as such fans of the original may want to temper their expectations as to how much, if any, gameplay will be shown.
The original Dead Space followed engineer Isaac Clarke as he explored a derelict space ship overrun by monstrous beasts known as Necromorphs. Capable of repurposing human bodies, Necromorphs would infest their victims, transforming them into savage, twisted creatures. Fortunately, Isaac's handy engineering tools proved the perfect weapon for severing the uncomfortable number of limbs these monsters displayed.
To recap, you’ll want to tune into the Motive Studio Twitch channel at 10am PT (1pm ET, 6pm BST, 7pm CEST) today for a first look at the Dead Space Remake.
