It won’t be long until horror game fans get their next glimpse of EA’s Dead Space Remake, as the company has announced a new developer livestream coming later this week.
The YouTube livestream is set for 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. E.T. / 6 p.m. GMT this Friday, March 11. EA says this video is the “latest in their series of early looks at the development and what goes into the remake of a game.”
Last August, EA showed off the first look at Dead Space remake’s graphics and gameplay in the first developer showcase. Here, we learned about the combat’s new “peeling” system, which lets players shoot the flesh off of enemies to expose bones and guts.
We also learned Gunner Wright will return to voice Isaac, and that there will be fine-tuning to the story to better connect the original Dead Space to its sequels. We don’t have an official release date for the game yet, but reports say Dead Space could be aiming for release this fall.
Dead Space is a 2008 action-horror game originally developed by Visceral Games. With the studio now shuttered, EA Motive is handling development on the remake. The Dead Space remake was officially announced last summer for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. We know the developers are rebuilding the original Dead Space from the ground up in the Frostbite engine. The next-gen-exclusive release has the developers looking to make use of advanced SSDs, 3D audio, and more.
