Dead Space 2
First Dead Space 3 Screenshot Emerges
Written By
View author's profile

What would appear to be the first screenshot from Dead Space 3 has appeared, showing Isaac Clarke (?) in his trademark armour in orbit (!) around a planet’s surface. 

It’s possible the image was taken from EA’s official site, which is currently showing a countdown in the game’s odd alien language. Translated they point to EA’s E3 2012 conference, scheduled for 1pm PST on Monday. 

Yesterday the site also began teasing a Dead Space animated short, thought to tie in with the game.

If leaks are to believed we already know a bit about the game. Set on a frozen planet, the game is rumoured to feature co-op with an alter-ego born from Clarke’s increasingly fractured mental state. It’s also one of our most anticipated announcements of E3 this year. Yay!

Keep an eye on the site for more next week.

Co-op? That sounds like it may take away from the suspence a bit.

@4... The game probably won't be an easy 1000... You probably can't handle that either, much like the controls I'm sure. On topic - can't wait!

@12 Such as?
This is a day one buy for me, love the series and I'm looking forward to seeing some proper screenshots. Not sure it needs a co-op mode though, much scarier as a single player experience.

I really do love this game, to the extent that I've even gone and learned the language to read and write. But I DON'T TRUST EA.
I really hope this doesn't become completely screwed over.

@17 my first thought was , thats a bit extreme, but then i remember getting a japanese to english dictionary back in 1996 to help me with biohazard on the psx, i guess that was a bit over the top aswell, lols, ps, the dictionary didnt help for shit!
ot i love capcom s/p adventure games they are nearly always awesome, i loved d/s 1 but i found d/s 2 a bit to dark, i just couldnt tell which way i was facing and i just gave up in the end. maybe ill go back to it and turn brightness up.

@16 I'm quite enjoying both of them, despite only getting DD for the Resi demo, its better than I thought it would be and I love the single player in MP3.
Can't comment on MIB3, but I've never been a fan anyway so it doesnt really interest me.

If it would be co-op, imo it takes away the "survival horror" atmosphere. Which already is toned down because the character seems to be some kind of securty officer (based on the trailer). That is the same they did with the Silent Hill franchise.

Another thing I'm curious about: Does co-op means it will have or need an online-pass or can it be done local/splitscreen?

What if the co-op is from different points of view? You start being apart and sometimes in the course of the game you meet each other, but briefly.

So much hate for co-op. Granted yes it WILL alter the experience, just think of the possibilities. If your "alter ego" dies, so do you. If something grabs your "alter ego" then your character should just randomly lock up into an escape attempt too. I say give it a chance before bashing it. Hell, for all we know, co-op could make the hardcore run harder to the point where you only get 3 saves TOTAL between you and your partner and if that isn't hard enough, then let's just knock it down to one save total.

I think that co-op in this will end up giving me a similar experience that i had with Resident Evil 5, bad. It took away all the scares and just made it come of as a lame action game. I hope I am wrong.

I expect to be able to fully ignore co-op and not be affected by it existing, depending how it's implemented.

We'll see. No use bashing something we know nothing about.

@#13 - How long have you been on the internet? pr0n is a 'leet' term for porn from like early 2000's.

Mmmkay, I am not sure how pointing out Dead Space's control issues is "trolling" but I will agree to disagree with you on that. I played it and I know that the series has control issues. Just google "Dead Space control issues" and you will see that my statement is not a novel one. Many, many people agree with me. How that is trolling, I am not sure but the Internet fanboy collective is an interesting one.

Maybe when folks can handle a little criticism of their franchise of choice without calling it "trolling"...well that is when you are ready to leave mommy and daddy's basement.

Now, I must go back to playing a game with absolutely no control issues and is a certified-hardcore-haxxor-tough-game-for-my-tag-so-no-one-thinks-I-am-a-wussy...My Horse and Me 2.

Heh, well, I did it more because I wanted to for the fun, than because I thought it'd help the game. It's still English anyway, just coded letters. And to be honest, it can kind of ruin the mood, attempting to stare at my tiny television to make out the different blood-covered letters a lot of the time, but it can also get me some street credit as a hardcore nerd. =)
