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.
I was wondering when they'd come to this obviously AWSOME conclusion.
No, no, no!
"a gnarly scar on his face, an engineering RIG of his own, and glowing red eyes peering from his helmet."
Aw. For a moment there I was hoping that we would be seeing Ellie with her own techsuit. That would be pretty cool.
EA are always latching onto the latest trends to make more money with their big franchises. I do hope this works out though..
That would be totally awesome! I'm hoping its split-screen!
i'm sensing a Nathan Hale fate for Isaac Clarke.seems appropriate,corrupted by the Marker.
I don't wanna dismember people :( only necromorphs cuz they're jerks
Would definately wait til I beat the game solo before I go diving into co-op. Playing with another person kills the immersiveness, story, and atmosphere.
Bring on E3 already so we can dive into some details.
the enemies ware never there
its all part of his imagination
how stupid is that
I remember when this was planned for Dead Space 2... hopefully this means they'll be scrapping the competitive aspect.
I don't mind, until I don't have to drag around a stupid bot in single player mode. I hope it's really just a rumor...
I want ellie to live
I fell that won't happen by the end of 3
well thats cool......multiplayer is the least of my worries however, i wanna see what isaacs life has in store for him this time
as long as it's not like RE5 coop where you have someone with you the ENTIRE game. Horror survival games are meant to be single player games, because you're less scared if you have someone with you the entire game.
