Dead Space Launch Trailer Welcomes Players Back to the Horrors of the USG Ishimura

EA has launched a new trailer for the upcoming Dead Space remake, ahead of its release later this month.

The launch trailer for Dead Space sees Isaac and company arriving on the USG Ishimura once again, and we get a more detailed look at many of the game's characters and story, as well. This coincides with a new blog post from Motive, which details how the story has evolved from the original game.

“All the departments approached it with the same philosophy,” says lead level designer Catherine Stewart. “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. For the most part, it was all about leaving alone the beats that made the game so great, and improving the ones that were problematic, where we thought we could do better. Walking that line was often difficult, but I think we struck a really good balance.”

The studio concentrated on giving a bit more screen time and personality to some of the game's secondary characters, as well as making a few changes to make sure Dead Space matches up with the lore and continuity established since the release of the first game. You can check out the full launch trailer down below.

Dead Space is launching on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on 27th January 2023.

  • It does look good. But £70 is pretty hight given RE4 is going nearer £60
  • Not a big fan of the character models, but the environments and Necromorphs look great. Also like the more cinematic approach.
  • I second @ Unger about the character models, particularly Nicole. She looks like Isaac's mother, vs. his girlfriend.

    Everything else looks on point, and "the suit" looks rad. I do wish they had retained the silent, faceless protagonist as in the original, however. It was such a surprise to see Isaac's face in the ending (I think that was the only time you saw him without the mask).

    Going to wait out the launch and see how this looks in a year or two. If it's good now, think how good it will be then!
  • Thixs will be fun to play though a couple of times again. Love to see the new areas and see what all changed.
  • Why has Nicole aged 30 years? Strange change.
