Electronic Arts has definitely given horror fans something to look forward to with the upcoming remake of Dead Space. From teasing an early 2023 release to sharing more about the sounds that go bump in the night, things are shaping up nicely. So nice, in fact, that EA has finally given the Dead Space remake a release date of 27 January 2023.
Coming to the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, the horror will come alive using the Frostbite engine. And if you want a glimpse of how good that can possibly look, there is a nice series of deep dives that go into details about immersive environments, visual effects, character models, and lighting effects.
In celebration of the release date announcement for the Dead Space remake, Senior Producer Phillippe Ducharme shared that “developing this remake has been a lot of fun for us at Motive, as we’re true fans of the franchise and want to treat it with the respect it deserves. It’s been equally exciting to see players’ reactions as we’re taking them on this development journey with us.”
“We’re making great progress on our road to hitting Alpha and we’re happy to announce that the game will be launching in January next year. We can’t wait for players, both old and new, to see how we’ve elevated the original experience in the remake to be just as impactful for this generation.”
The return of Isaac Clark and the USG Ishimura is certainly highly anticipated, and we will witness the horror ourselves in just eight months time.
