Richard Walker

EA has announced that Motive's eagerly-anticipated Dead Space remake will be launching in January 2023, bringing the classic 2008 survival horror title bang up to date with overhauled visuals and enhanced audio.

Built from the ground up using the Frostbite engine, the Dead Space remake promises a higher level of “immersion and quality”, as you explore the USG Ishimura as Isaac Clarke, an engineer stranded aboard the planet cracker vessel, which is overrun with vicious alien beasties known as Necromorphs.

"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 Senior Producer Phillippe Ducharme.

“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,” Ducharme added. “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.”

You can find out more about lighting effects, environments, character models, and loads of other stuff from today's ‘Crafting the Tension’ developer livestream, in the trailers below. Dead Space launches for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC on 27th January 2023.
