The Dead Space 2 media run has begun with a sprint, with EA capping things off last week at a pre-E3 showing (we weren't there unfortunately) prior to the main event itself. We have an all-new video available here and you can check out a batch of new screens showing off the game's even more impressive visuals, as well what look to be new Rigs for Isaac as well as some familiar distorted, gory faces.

Dead Space 2 is currently due for a Q1 2011 release, though it's suggested we'll be back cutting through Necromorph limbs early January. Check out the new screens right here as well as some samples below.

errr yeah (damn, game spoiled - I hadn't quite finished it yet :P)

I don't remember it being destroyed? The colony at the end gets destroyed, but I don't think the Ishimura ever was. Been a few years since I played it though.

Visuals look great, but I think I should tell you that when I click the link it takes me to a top 10 games list instead of sreenshots.

I assumed it was destroyed because everything was failing and it was being sucked in by the planets gravity.


The ship is left derelict at the end of "Dead Space", when Isaac heads for Aegis VII in the Executive Shuttle. It is unknown what becomes of it after the mining colony is devastated by the asteroid. It is possible, and most likely, that the Ishimura fell into Aegis 7's gravity well and was destroyed.

Anyway, sorry for slightly ruining it for you Steve.

Ah fair enough, yeah I hadn't though of that. I just thought all the s*** falling down was the big bit of rock they chopped out of the planet, but I guess the Ishimura was pretty much in the same place as the big chunk of rock, so it probably came down with it.

I kinda like the idea of it floating through space Space Hulk style though, and f*****g up anyone who tries to come on board.

Also, the game is like 2 years old, the statute of limitations on spoilers has long expired :P

Never actually got around to finishing Dead Space, i just found the controls on the PC to be too floaty. Might have to borrow it from someone on a console and give it a go.

Anyone been rolling around as Isaac in Skate 3, he looks fairly sweet.

^^ God that guy sucks at playing

One thing I didn't get from dead space 1 was what was the connection between the marker and the hive mind. Did the marker spawn the hivemind, did the marker activate the hivemind (ie it was already present inside the planet) or lastly are they both one and the same thing?

I had this problem too at first, but it was fixed by either turning V-Sync on or off (can't remember its been awhile). After that it was fine. Never did finish it but, monsters in closets are boring.
