Product Information on Dead Space 3
Electronic Arts USâ€™s website has released a few need-to-knows about the upcoming third game in the Dead Space series.
Dead Space 3 will take place in a new environment that promises a swarm of Necromorphs to combat. There will be a new planet called Tau Volantis, described as a treacherous frozen land that will put protagonist Isaac Clarkeâ€™s engineering skills to the test as he attempts to survive.
There is also a little more information about the cooperative option. Players who choose to play cooperatively will be introduced to a new character named Sergeant John Carver, a man who lost his family to the Necromorph attacks and now seeks to avenge them. Co-op mode will feature cutscenes that show Isaac and John interacting with each other and there will be side missions that only John can undertake.
Finally, the website claims that this is the game where many unanswered questions about the lore of the Dead Space universe will be addressed. There are hints that Isaac will finally learn about the origin of the Necromorphs and possibly find a way to destroy them once and for all.
Dead Space 3 is slated to come out sometime in 2013.
