Recently, rumours surfaced online following a listing on the Dead Space remake’s regional trailer that suggested EA Games and Motive’s survival horror game will also be coming to PS4. According to Eurogamer, this was a mistake. The remake will only be releasing on PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC after all.
The regional trailer for the Dead Space remake ignited plenty of discussion online when it incorrectly listed the game as releasing on PS4 as well, despite developer Motive and EA Games only ever listing it as a current-gen release. Eurogamer has quickly corrected the error, assuring fans that it won’t be coming to PS4.
MORE DEAD SPACE – Dead Space Remake Won’t Have Loading Screens or Cuts
Given the game’s incredible visuals, seamless gameplay and lack of loading times, getting it to run on PS4 or Xbox One without compromising the new experience would be quite a tall order for Motive. It makes sense that it would only launch on the more powerful and capable current-gen hardware.
The Dead Space remake’s official Steam description reads:
“The sci-fi survival-horror classic Dead Space returns, completely rebuilt from the ground up to offer a deeper, more immersive experience. This remake brings jaw-dropping visual fidelity, suspenseful atmospheric audio, and improvements to gameplay while staying faithful to the original game’s thrilling vision. Isaac Clarke is an everyman engineer on a mission to repair a vast mining ship, the USG Ishimura, only to discover something has gone horribly wrong.”
In related news, EA Games recently revealed the full minimum and recommended PC system requirements for the Dead Space remake. A collector’s edition is also available to purchase from Limited Run Games, coming with a replica of protagonist Isaac Clarke’s helmet.
Dead Space launches on 27 January 2023 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC. Check out the latest gameplay trailer below.
