Publisher Electronic Arts and developer Motive Studios at EA Play 2021 last month announced a remake of the sci-fi survival horror classic, Dead Space. It is in development for the Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC.
he game has been rebuilt from the ground up with the Frostbite Engine. It has improved visual fidelity and gameplay improvements, but it will stay true to the spirit of the original from 2008.
Creative director Roman Campos-Oriola wants to make the immersion in the remake even deeper than in the original with a fully interactive experience from start to finish.
We want to make that immersion even deeper with a fully interactive experience, from the start screen to the end credits. We don't want anything to pull you out of the experience and we don't want any cuts," Campos-Oriola said at the time. "[The faster SSDs of new consoles mean] there's not going to be any loading. There's not going to be any moment where we're going to cut your experience, where we're going to cut your camera. You can play it from the start screen to the end credits seamlessly."
