The first gameplay trailer for Dead Space has been released, which showcases the remake’s excellent new graphics and terrifying old enemies.
The trailer starts with clips we have already seen from earlier teasers, such as afflicted humans banging their heads against concrete walls or protagonist Isaac Clarke acquiring his Plasma Cutter from a table where blood spatters on the wall advise him to dismember everything he sees. In the next moment, he is fending off vicious Necromorphs, taking one off at the knees before electrocuting and dispatching the other.
Dead Space’s low-gravity sections will appear in the remake as well, but there will be no loading screens between sections. The lights on the spine of Clarke’s exosuit provide the player with a clear indication of the remaining health of the exosuit.
As the trailer concludes, several of Dead Space’s bosses are seen, including the Hive Mind and Leviathan, as well as the ominous Red Marker that is driving the crew of the USG Ishimura insane.
“The sci-fi survival horror classic Dead Space returns, completely rebuilt from the ground up to offer a deeper and more immersive experience,” reiterates EA in the trailer’s description. “This remake brings jaw-dropping visual fidelity and suspenseful atmospheric audio, as well as new gameplay content and improvements while staying faithful to the original game’s thrilling vision.”
Dead Space is available for pre-order now, and the game will be available on January 27. The Xbox store has posted the game’s first screenshots. Due to the gruesome nature of Dead Space, everything has an age verification.
Dead Space has been remade by EA with unusual care. There have been periodic previews of the game over the past few months, and this has led to multiple tweaks and improvements, such as updates to Plasma Cutters and Pulse Rifles’ sounds. In the gameplay trailer released today, you will be able to see both in action. As Dead Space approaches its January release date, you can expect more previews.
