The lights are on
Dead Space 3 is apparently getting drop-in, drop-out cooperative multiplayer, new gameplay elements and enemies, and a new weapon system.
According to sources speaking to IGN, Dead Space 3, which has not been formally announced, will feature a cooperative mode that mirrors the single-player campaign. If you're playing co-op, you'll still experience the same scenes and events in single-player, but with a partner.
Isaac Clarke can fight alongside a man with "a gnarly scar on his face, an engineering RIG of his own, and glowing red eyes peering from his helmet." This suggests he may not be a character in the physical world but instead part of Isaac's imagination.
As for enemies, Isaac will now fight humans for the first time. The report also confirms the game is set on a icy planet, which surfaced in a rumor last year. EA said earlier this week it will release a new Dead Space title sometime before March 2013, but would not say it's Dead Space 3.
Check out the IGN report for more details.
The Co-op sounds similar to F.E.A.R. 3, which really isn't a bad thing.
Because f*ck every horror element. EA says every game NEEDS multiplayer and because they're the boss, they're always right!
I really love co-op, but I don't like co-op in horror games. It takes the suspense out of the experience. And I hope the single player won't have a CPU as the co-op partner like in Resident Evil 5.
Sounds like F.E.A.R. 3 to me... wish they kept the campaign single-player, though...
Finally! I was waiting for another co-op bro-action game. Too many single player horror games on the market.
Interesting, looking forward for more information.
Finally! I can't get my friend to play any of these games so now maybe we can play together and he can experience the horror that is Dead Space.
Co-op would be an outstanding addition.
As long as I can play the campaign alone with no A.I. screwing things up for me, I wouldn't mind a (separate) co-op mode.
That would honestly be pretty darn cool. I cannot wait to hear more.
I love the dead space series a lot but i would have to say the first dead space is a lot better then the second one for the whole "horror" effect.I think the second one is a great action game and I loved the new suits in it.As for dead space 3(if that's actually what its going to be and titled)its going to be interesting how the plot and "horror" effect plays out because supposedly it takes place on a ice planet so EA is trading in dark corners for white blinding rooms which i presume is just as hard to see in.anyways cant wait till this game is released.
This could be a really great addition to the series. I want to play Dead Space with friends, I just don't want to have to do it in the terrible competitive mode that was in Dead Space 2.
DEAD SPACE FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I *** LOVE Dead Space!!! It's the only game that I actually bought a T-shirt of giving them free advertising. Co-op would kick ass!!! Just, please, for the love of ***, do NOT make it those tiny square boxes making a waste of the rest of my screen. Internet co-op FTW.
Being a huge fan of Dead Space, and a huge fan of co-op makes me really excited and have high hopes for this game. Who knows where it will go but if this is all true im loving it.. Never thought I would do the McDonald statement;)
Average complainer: Oh muy gawdddd, it wonn't be scaryyy anyyy moree... WAAAAAA!!! Co-opn is gonna SUCK!!!
Solution: Do not play the co-op mode.
Amazing hope this turns out true excited for this...
