Dead Space 2: Isaac Speaks, Multiplayer Included
It is now official that EA will be producing a sequel to Dead Space and the upcoming issue of Game Informer will provide you with plenty of early details.
But if you can't wait that long, we'll fill you in right now, courtesy of Rely on Horror. The highlights of the feature are that our new space station will be called "Sprawl," the main character Isaac will finally have a voice, and the story is set three years after the original in true sequel form. The space station may feel a little different from the environment we experienced in the first Dead Space; the Necromorph playground in DS2 is described as an "organic, haphazardly constructed, long-term place that’s built around the remaining shards of one of Saturn’s moon-The first planet-crack ever. Like any real city it is not all built by one person. Some stuff was built up, and some areas, corporate areas, government areas, and public areas." New bosses will test our mettle, space drifting is something we'll have to contend with and yes, there will be multiplayer...where you'll be forced to do to your friends what you do to those Necromorphs. In other words: dismemberment. Feel free to read more about Dead Space 2 and as you read, bear in mind that you could be looking at the establishment of the finest survival/horror series of the generation.
The first really broke new ground in that genre and we expect nothing but an absolute masterpiece with the sequel. Anything less and we'll be disappointed, so don't let us down, Visceral!
