Being a fan of the Dead Space franchise, I was excited to see where Isaac’s ill-fated adventure’s took him next. With rumors beginning to leak out about a potential icy location and a new co-op partner to bring along for the ride, it seemed to be in the cards that we’d be hearing something from Visceral and EA about the third installment.
The demo that was on display during the EA Press Conference looked great. It had all the elements you expect out of Dead Space including terrifying and grotesque foes, disturbing environments (getting swallowed by a giant necromorph creature? Gah), and tense situations. They even showed off the co-op aspect which seemed to add a whole new flavor to the series while staying true to what makes it great.
With E3 now over, Visceral put out a developer walkthrough of the entire E3 demo, which is over 20 minutes long and includes scenes only shown behind closed doors. So what are you waiting for? Jump on in and see how the co-op side of it works in comparison to the normal single player campaign.
