PC version of Dead Space Remake will not require Origin | Steam users playing Dead Space Remake will not need to use EA’s Origin launcher.
According to a statement provided to PC Gamer, “Dead Space is native to Steam”. This does not imply that EA is abandoning Origin or its new platform altogether. Many games still launch Origin in the background when accessed through Steam, but that will not be the case with Dead Space Remake.
This is not the first time EA has removed Origin as a requirement. F1 2021 is another title in which Origin does not launch in the background when accessed through Steam. The good news is that your PC will use less memory as Origin and Steam will not run simultaneously. Furthermore, this should make it easier to run Dead Space Remake on the Steam Deck since you will not be required to use workarounds to install Origin and third-party launchers.
There is more good news for Dead Space fans as the game has undergone a major makeover and now looks almost unrecognizable when compared to the original 2008 release. In addition to the game’s eerie setting, Motive has added something more to make it even scarier. Here is the latest system for peeling and flaking the skin. Necromorphs have been essentially reconstructed as their bones “break, tear, and shatter” when they are damaged.
The A.L.I.V.E system is another interesting new feature of the game. According to EA, this will affect Isaac’s breathing and heart rate, vocal excursions, and dialogue influenced by driving gameplay features. This is a clever upgrade over the previous Dead Space entries, which enhances the realism of the game.
It is only the beginning of EA’s revival of classic games with Dead Space Remake. EA’s exec who oversees several studios, including Motive, has stated that EA has loosened the reins and given developers more freedom to work on passion projects.
