We will soon get a look at the upcoming Dead Space remake.
On Twitter, developer Motive Studios announced that they will be hosting a livestream focusing on the upcoming Dead Space remake. The livestream will take place on August 31st, and will be viewable on the developer's Twitch channel. The livestream will take place at 10:00 a.m. PST / 1 p.m. EST. According to the tweet, this will be a very early look at the development of the upcoming remake. Since this is an early look, it is unknown just how much of the game will be shown.
The Dead Space remake was announced last month at the EA Play 2021 livestream. The remake will come to PC and next-gen consoles. The game's developer, Motive Studios, were behind Star Wars: Squadrons and Star Wars Battlefront II's story campaign. The upcoming Dead Space remake is being developed with the Frostbite engine, which is the same engine that powers the Battlefield and Star Wars Battlefront games. According to a press release that was put out for Dead Space, the remake will make improvements to gameplay while staying true to the original titles. It was emphasized that this is not just a remaster of the original game, but a full on remake.
A small teaser was released for Dead Space when it was announced, which can be seen here. In the brief teaser, we see the bloodied halls of the USG Ishimura, the space craft that the game takes place on. We do get a brief glimpse at a necromorph, the deadly creatures that players will be pitted against. The teaser ends with the game's protagonist, Isaac Clark, restoring his health at a workstation with the words "Cut off their limbs" scrawled on the wall in blood.
Dead Space will release for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S. The game does not have a release window at this time.
