Due to hit stores sometime late 2008, Dead Space is “set in the cold blackness of deep space, the atmosphere is soaked with a feeling of tension, dread and sheer terror. In Dead Space, players step into the role of engineer Isaac Clarke – an ordinary man on a seemingly routine mission to fix the communications systems aboard a deep space mining ship. It is not long before Isaac awakes to a living nightmare when he learns that the ship’s crew has been ravaged by a vicious alien infestation. He must fight through the dead silence and darkness of deep space to stay alive.“
By looking at the screens that were leaked to GamesRadar last month it is easy to say this is going to be creepy game. In the absence of other survival horror titles like Resident Evil and Doom, this one looks to be taking the reigns and pulling them hard. The unique character designs and the outstanding graphics should impress even the most hard boiled Halo and Bioshock fan!
Dead Space is set to appear on both the XBOX 360 and Sony’s Playstation 3, but no word yet if it will also be available for PC users. The ESRB has yet to rate the game, but given the projects fast development we’ll probably know how much gore to expect sooner than later. However, if you need more unsettling images and a place to voice your opinions on the game, head on over to the badass official Dead Space site and take a tour of the facility. There you can also join up with the DS community via their forums!
We’ll be brining you much as we get it!
