Ever since Dead Space 3 may or may not have been outed by a rogue banner in an Israeli TV show, it seems the rumors keep flowing out like a leaky ship filled with water. While still considered “Unofficial” in the eyes of Electronic Arts, what follows below should be taken with a grain of salt until official word.
Rumor has it that Dead Space 3 will take place on an icy planet known as Tau Volantis. After crash landing on the planet, Isaac soon discovers that his travelling partner from the second game, Ellie Langford, has survived as well. She’s since moved on to a different part of the planet and has taken survivors with her. Isaac takes it upon himself in the frigid temps and blinding snowstorms to search for any signs of civilization. No word yet on if the Necromorphs make an appearance, but the rumor has a new foe taking the stage this time around, only known collectively as “The Hive Mind”.
I continue to forget that the fantastic Dead Space 2 came out only this past January. I wouldn’t expect EA to reveal anything too soon, but then again, with all these leaks who knows. Either way, we’re looking at another 1 and a half years at least before the potential game hits shelves. As a big fan of the franchise, I can’t wait to see what’s in store for Isaac. Of course, when the game is revealed, I’ll have it for you here.
