Dead Space 2 Isn’t dead.


dead-space_2_reveal
EA has annouced a sequel to its space horror hit; Dead Space with Visceral Games developing the title. There had been reports that the series would get cut as EA looked to cut the dead wood from their lineup but it has now been confirmed Dead Space, after selling 1.4 million units, has made the cut.

Players reprise the role of the original’s protagonist, deep space mining engineer turned alien slayer Isaac Clarke. It promises to deliver “new tools to gruesomely slice and dismember the Necromorphs” and more zero-G environmental action.

“In Dead Space 2, not everything is exactly as it seems. Expect plot twists that will surprise you and a huge cast of twisted, disgusting monsters that are sure to scare the daylights out of you”.

Steve Papoutsis, Executive Producer, EA

Dead Space 1 seemed to be more of a hit with gamers rather than critiques with reviewers citing it as a thief of other survival horror titles and whilst the storyline was obvious with some plot holes the gameplay was solid making it a decent shooter with an original dismembering mechanic. I know whilst I didn’t think the game was amazing I did play it enough to get the Platinum trophy so I shall be keeping an eye on the sequel.

No release date has yet been revealed. but I’d expect it just before Christmas 2010.

    i loved the first one lol.

    And yeah, sometime last week, EA’s twitter posted a teaser image, so I didn’t mention anything because I thought it was in the works anyway haha

    Also, I’d like to see how they begin the story based on the ending of the first one (without spoiling anything, was it real or a hallucination? or will they act like it never happened?)

    EDIT:
    Well, it was a deadspace twitter. The image, in case you’re wondering, was this one here:
