As part of a new developer livestream showcasing the art and lighting effects of the Dead Space Remake from Motive and EA we also got a surprise release date - January 27, 2023 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. Created using the Frostbite game engine it's set to be a next-gen only release.
The lighting and fog effects in particular look impressive. Here's the full livestream and deep dive into how the art direction shapes the sci-fi horror atmosphere of Dead Space.
Dead Space puts players in the boots of Isaac Clarke, an everyman engineer on a routine mission to fix a gigantic mining starship, the USG Ishimura. But aboard the Ishimura, a living nightmare awaits. The ship’s crew has been slaughtered and infected, and Isaac’s girlfriend, Nicole, is missing somewhere on board. Alone and trapped, with only his engineering tools and skills, Isaac faces a battle for survival - not only against terrifying monsters called Necromorphs, but his own crumbling sanity.
“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,” said Phillippe Ducharme, Senior Producer of Dead Space. “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.”
And with the game dated for January - 2023 is set to kick off in style.
