Electronic Arts has announced the remake of the sci-fi survival horror Dead Space will be coming to Playstation 5, PC and Xbox Series X in January 2023.
Dead Space Remake Will Release January 2023
The release date for the Dead Space remake by Electronic Arts has finally been unveiled, releasing on January 27th 2023 for PC, Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X. The date was announced during a livestream held this week.
Previously the developer EA Motive has shared that the game would have a release window of early 2023. The studio says the remake is expected to get a “more substantial” look at the game this October, before Halloween. This probably means we won’t be seeing much Dead Space at Summer Game Fest in June. EA Play Live is also not happening this year.
What to Expect from the Dead Space Remake
The Dead Space remake was unveiled last July, with the development team promising it will stay close to the original 2008 sci-fi survival horror. “An improved story, characters, gameplay mechanics” are all the cards. We can also expect some interesting upgrades including more precise alien carving technology. There are also more immersive additions such as the “A.L.I.V.E.” system which stands for Adrenaline, Limbic System Response, Intelligent Dialog, Vitals, and Exertions. The Limbic System will actually change the way Isaac sounds including his breathing and heart rate.
The Dead Space series has three main games launched between 2008 and 2013. The franchise also gained a few spin-offs including the puzzle-action game Dead Space Ignition and the rail shooter Dead Space Extractions. The main entries of the series are based on the 26th century featuring Isaac Clarke who fights undead beings known as Necromorphs. It will be exciting to see how the remake portrays some of the more haunting moments, especially with the sound design.
EA’s Busy Timeline
Electronic Arts have been in the news quite a bit recently, with the quarterly financial conference call held this week which unveiled four titles in the pipeline including one major IP release expected for early 2023 and a remake. Titles mentioned were not “publicly disclosed”. Another game currently in development under EA is The Lord of the Rings: Heroes of Middle-earth mobile RPG, a turn-based collectable coming to iOS and Android.
