Dead Space remake gameplay shown off in new trailer

Forget dismembering, it's time to peel.

The first Dead Space remake gameplay trailer has been released and shows off new features tied to the classic survival horror title.

While we already knew that the new Dead Space would be one continuous take from start to finish, EA Motive had some other surprises up its sleeve.

New features include a new peeling system that “introduces layered flesh, tendons and bones that break, tear and shatter in shocking new ways,” EA advised. “Players will also experience increased opportunities for creativity in how they utilize their variety of unique weapons and abilities to combat these horrifying enemies.”

A new intensity director will also be at play, one that “dynamically adjusts what shows up in Isaac’s path, from Necromorph spawns and how they choose to attack them, to environmental effects such as light, smoke, particles and sound,” EA continued. “Isaac’s heartbeat, breathing, and exertions also adjust based on his stress level to provide players direct feedback into his mental, emotional and physical state.”

Finally, Dead Space 2 and Dead Space 3 voice actor Gunner Wright will reprise his role as Isaac Clarke, adding “new narrative enrichments” that are a stark contrast to the original silent protagonist of 2008.

Players can expect the Dead Space remake from 27 January 2023 on Windows PC, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X and PS5.
