Dead Space Remake Out Now for Xbox Series X|S

Dead Space Remake Out Now for Xbox Series X|S

Richard Walker

EA and developer Motive Studio have today launched Dead Space, a remake of the classic 2008 sci-fi survival horror, in which hapless engineer, Isaac Clarke, finds himself stranded aboard the USG Ishimura planet cracker vessel. On a Routine mission to repair the ship, Isaac soon finds himself having to endure no end of horrors, alone and trapped.

With the Ishimura's crew slaughtered and Isaac's significant other, Nicole, missing, you'll need to use all of the tools at your disposal (gimme that Plasma Cutter) and make it out alive. The alternative is a grisly end at the spiky appendages of a monstrous Necromorph, so, you'll need to ‘cut off their limbs’, and stave off encroaching insanity.

“When Dead Space launched in 2008, it immediately became a survival horror classic with its iconic sci-fi atmosphere and environmental narrative. Our most important goal in remaking the game almost 15 years later is honouring the legacy of the original, while enhancing it with the power of today’s hardware,” said Sr. Producer Phillippe Ducharme.

“​​If this is your first time stepping into Isaac’s suit, we hope it creates the same, lasting impression that it did for us when we played it in 2008,” he added. “​​If you are a returning player, our wish is to have delivered a game that lives up to your fondest memories, and that you’ll love picking up that Plasma Cutter once again.”

Rebuilt from the ground up using the Frostbite engine, Dead Space includes the voice of Gunner Wright of Dead Space 2 and 3 as Isaac, an alternative ending to discover, new UI map controls, an improved locator, a flesh peeling system to make dismembering Necromorphs even more gratifying, and a host of other enhancements.

Dead Space is out now for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC, priced $69.99/£69.99, with a Deluxe Edition featuring bonus cosmetic items for $79.99/£79.99. EA Play Pro members can also get the member-only Anodized Suit Texture, and three Unique Suits and two Suit Textures included in the Digital Deluxe Edition.

  • It seems that it reviewed well but I'm hesitant to be the first to buy it from my gamer group of friends. It would be excellent for this to be well received and then get the Dead Space 2 remake happening.
  • You guys have been somewhat lacking on review front lately. Not like I need review to get this game, but where is it…?

    My copy won’t get here till Monday so that has me really pissed off. Serves me right fir getting physical copy:-/
  • @2 : I'll only have it on monday too... But the physical edition was 54,99€ Vs 79,99 on the M$ store... Worth the wait in my view ^^
  • I started a stream of it, got 5 hours in, it's really good so far.

    I love the original, but this is a definite improvement so far.
  • Actually think the original version still holds up so getting an improved version feels like a fantastic bonus. I hope this does well out there. Would love a remake of the second game as well. The third one was very meh when it came to the story in my opinion. But the gameplay was fun. Would love if this brought the series back and led to a Dead Space 4. : )
  • Yeah, it would be nice to see a Dead Space 2 remake sometime soon, as it happened with RE games. But instead of a remaking Dead Space 3 (the least good of the trilogy) it would be great to see Dead Space 4 intead. With no multiplayer included if possible.
  • I think my save at the end of last nights stream put me around 12 hours in and just entered the USM Valor.

    Still got a ways to go, but so far I'd put this remake up there with the gamecube Resident Evil for how well it's been pulled off.

    It looks better, plays better, sounds better, has QoL improvements that enhance the game, the lore is deeper and better interconnected to the sequels [which will work with or without a DS2 remake, though I hope we get one,] and so far hasn't cut anything [that I've noticed] but instead expanded things with some rearrangement that has successfully managed to both feel familiar, while also being different enough that it's brought the tension back for me despite having played the original many times.]

    So far I have complete faith in this new team to manage the franchise going forward.
  • @Akinokaze nice heads up bro! Reading your opinion makes me very confident for getting this game as soon as I have the cash. It is cool to know, that this remake didn't dissapoint.
  • *Disappoint. Still waiting for the completely NECESSARY "edit comment option" guys.
