The lights are on
Isaac Clarke on Hoth? Maybe. The recent scuttlebutt on Dead Space 3 may reveal the new location and some major plot points for the sequel.
If this ends up being true, keep in mind that the following information will contain spoilers.
Siliconera claims to have word from a trusted source that Isaac crash lands on a snowy wasteland, and eventually makes his way to an unmanned waystation. He eventually runs into Ellie, the one of the few survivors from Dead Space 2’s Sprawl. Ellie, Isaac, and a third survivor are rumored to climb a mountain mid-blizzard, complete with mysterious monster noises. The enemy of Dead Space 3 is supposedly the “hive mind.”
We can’t be certain whether any of this is true or not, but the scenario does sound pretty awesome. Would you play a Dead Space set on a frozen planet?
