EA Officially Announces Dead Space 2
We all knew it was coming but it's always nice to have the official press release staring us in the face.
Today, Visceral Games and Electronic Arts have announced Dead Space 2, the highly anticipated sequel to one of the most impressive and accomplished survival/horror titles to date. Protagonist Isaac Clarke is back for another intense and terrifying adventure and this time, he'll have the benefit of "new tools to gruesomely slice and dismember the Necromorphs." Of course, his default Plasma Cutter will return, as will those innovative zero-gravity environments and those horrid and freakish creatures that really only die when their limbs are severed from their bodies. Oh, and it seems the team is interested in providing an even better story (which we always appreciate); here's what Dead Space 2 Executive Producer, Steve Papoutsis, had to say:
"We’re thrilled to jump back into the series, making the next chapter in Isaac’s journey. The infection continues to spread throughout space and our hero Isaac Clarke is the only person able to contain it. There are still loads of Necromorphs that need killing. 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."
The press release further reminds us of the original's success; it received nearly 100 industry awards and holds an average critical review score of 89. It's certainly one of our favorite games of the generation thus far and we just can't wait to learn more about the sequel. In the meantime, feel free to peruse any info they have available over at the game's official website.
