About The Game

Experience cooperative gameplay in the Dead Space series for the first time in Visceral Games’ Dead Space 3. Galactic engineer and amateur zombie-hunter Isaac Clarke returns to battle the necromorphs on the surface of the frozen planet Tau Volantis, where he and his allies Ellie Langford and Sergeant John Carver discover a potential clue to the origin of the necromorphs. Ellie is separated from the group when the three crash-land on the planet’s surface, and so Isaac sets out to rescue her, much to the reluctance of the merciless Carver. Featuring good-cop-bad-cop teamplay, a terrestrial setting and a terrifying new array of necromorphs, Dead Space 3 looks to bring plenty of brand new dynamics to the series when it is released in February, 2013, on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.

Game Features:

  • • Drop-in drop-out cooperative gameplay lets you experience the terrifying Dead Space universe with a friend for the first time
  • • Unique solo campaign for gamers who want to go it alone against the necromorphs
  • • Brand new weapons crafting bench is the first true testament to Isaac’s engineering skills in the series, with explosive results

Dead Space 3 Review

By Gus McZeal |

Poor Isaac Clarke never gets a break. In the first Dead Space, this quiet, regular Joe engineer working onboard a “planet cracker” mining starship finds himself in the middle of a necromorph infestation, and must fight for his survival using only mining tools as weapons. In Dead Space 2, he wakes up in a mental hospital tormented by visions of his screaming dead girlfriend, and yup, has to battle the necromorphs again using, you guessed it, his trusty bolt gun. Isaac has evolved over the past games from a totally silent protagonist into a fearless crusader against the necromorph threat, but that doesn’t mean Dead Space 3 won’t be scary. Expect more than just Isaac to change in this latest iteration of Visceral Games’ award-winning series.

The plot of Dead Space 3 is fairly simple: following the events of the first game, Isaac and his Ellie Langford are traveling through space when they stumble across the icebound planet Tau Volantis, host to the wreckage of a planet cracker ship similar to the one Isaac worked on in the first Dead Space. Realizing that they may be close to discovering the source of the mysterious Markers causing the galaxy’s necromorph outbreak, the pair team up with Earth Defense Force military officer Sergeant John Carver to investigate. The three enter the planet’s atmosphere but their ship malfunctions and falls apart, separating Ellie from the group. After a relatively controlled landing on the planet’s surface, Isaac resolves to rescue Ellie and unravel the mystery of the Markers.

For the first time, Dead Space 3 introduces drop-in drop-out cooperative gameplay to the franchise. Isaac remains the game’s main character, but he’s joined by Sergeant Carver, an Earth Defense Force military officer whose personality clashes substantially with his own. Isaac is intent on rescuing Ellie, but Carver refuses to let anything compromise his mission to destroy the markers and end the necromorph threat.

This “good cop, bad cop” dynamic sounds a little clichéd, but it could add an interesting dimension to the Dead Space narrative, which has previously been a pretty solitary experience—other than Isaac’s crazy hallucinations of his dead girlfriend, that is. Players who value the isolationism of the first two Dead Space games can play Dead Space 3 entirely alone; there won’t be an option to have an AI-controlled Carver. The game’s developers have stated that playing cooperatively and playing alone will be entirely separate experiences. Carver might appear in the solo storyline occasionally, but playing alongside a friend will result in different dialogue, pathways through various missions, and potentially even a different ending to the game.

Another new addition to the series is the evolution of Isaac’s skills as an engineer. While weapon customization existed in previous titles, the extent to which this is possible is greatly expanded in Dead Space 3 thanks to the new Weapons Crafting Bench. This toolkit allows Isaac to combine a wide variety of weapons parts into brand new killing machines: for example, you can make a gun that fires explosive and ice-based rounds simultaneously, and select whether this gun is a handheld weapon or a larger piece of equipment. For lazy and unimaginative players (sorry!), there’s a single-click weapons station that lets you build weapons instantly, weapons like the awesomely-named “Jesus and Mary Chain Gun” and “Mjollnir.” Another cool thing about the Weapons Crafting Bench is the ability to trade blueprints with your cooperative partner, although it might be more beneficial to use different weapon types for maximum variety.

Dead Space 3 will certainly be more action-oriented than the first two games, with colossal monsters and environmental threats like giant mining drills and collapsing structures. For the first time, Isaac will face human enemies in the form of Unitologist cultists, another substantial change for the series. With a focus on action, a dialogic co-operative mode, and the introduction of non-necromorph enemies, Dead Space 3 seems to be veering away from its predecessors, but the diverse options presented to players make this title seem like the most innovative yet. Dead Space 3 will see its North American release on February 5th 2013 in North America and February 8th in Europe, and will be available on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
