EA has recently confirmed that there will be a Dead Space 3. Yay!
There has also been an anonymously-sourced IGN report that there will be drop-in drop-out co-op in the game, which will be a first for the series.
The IGN article reports:
“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.”
That’s not the only new aspect either, it has been revealed that a snow covered planet will be a part of the setting at one point. So the “white out” rumor is somewhat true. Also, Isaac will be fighting humans this time – as well as necromorphs. These humans will be heavily armored and will have guns and grenades, and all that fun stuff. Horror is obviously still a theme in the game, it just seems to be done a little differently. Another thing is the size of the enemies. It’s reported that Isaac with face “skyscraper-sized” enemies at points in the game. Wow.
So this is either awesome news or mediocre news, it’s up to you to decided. Hopefully more will be announced at E3 this year.
