Dead Space 3

Dead Space 3 is set to release February 5th, 2013 in North America, marking over a year and a half since our last adventure with Isaac Clarke. It’ll be coming to PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. There is a new twist to this creepy science fiction survival horror genre video game. For the first time, you and a friend will be able to team up as Clarke and newcomer John Carver for co-op gaming. As the Resident Evil series has shown us, co-op in a third person survival horror game is a great addition. Nothing is better than fighting for your life with one of your friends at your side. Dead Space 3 takes place after the events on the Sprawl in Dead Space 2. Isaac Clarke meets John Carver, and learns of Carver’s harrowing past. They then team up to explore the Hoth-esque planet Tau Volantis. However disaster strikes (as it does when you explore a frozen death planet) and Clarke’s mission gets significantly more difficult. With Dead Space 3 being set on a frozen planet, I’m very excited to see how the atmosphere will be handled. Being snowed in at a failing facility located on an alien planet is sure to have it’s surprises. Additionally, the Necromorphs are sure to have some new tricks up their sleeves in Dead Space 3. Clarke’s journey for the truth and exploration is sure to be a long and arduous one.

The Dead Space series has always been one of my favorites. In a genre mostly cornered by zombies, monsters, ghosts and Slenderman; a Sci-Fi setting is incredibly refreshing. While countless hallways and abandoned villages do give off a very creepy vibe, being trapped in space with nothing but evil aliens of doom takes fear to a whole new level. The entire atmosphere of the Dead Space series is absolutely perfect. Whether stranded alone on a derelict space ship, or trapped in a space station gone awry, the Dead Space series has always given a sense of isolation and desperation. Hopefully Dead Space 3 will be able to capture those feelings while still utilizing the new co-op aspects. The addition of an ally will definitely detract from the feeling of complete isolation, however this can be avoided if they work the co-op in correctly. If Clarke and Carver have to split up and complete different objectives, a clear sense of urgency will be added. Rushing down separate dark corridors trying to activate a switch or regroup with your ally will definitely make for some intense game-play.

Hopefully Dead Space 3 doesn’t disappoint, and Gaming Illustrated will be sure to cover the release this February.
