“Something has gone horribly wrong on board the mining ship, USG Ishimura. Get your first look at Dead Space gameplay.

The sci-fi survival horror classic Dead Space returns, completely rebuilt from the ground up to offer a deeper and more immersive experience. This remake brings jaw-dropping visual fidelity and suspenseful atmospheric audio, as well as new gameplay content and improvements while staying faithful to the original game’s thrilling vision.”
In related news, Motive has stated that the Dead Space remake won’t have any loading screens and will feature “one sequential shot” similar to 2018’s God of War, which didn’t have any cuts unless players died. As for the remake’s faithfulness to the original, it will include some changes but mainly to improve and enhance the horror of the original title. These include more intense bodily dismemberment for Necromorphs and denser lighting for environments.
