Earlier today, EA confirmed that Dead Space is returning in the form of a gorgeous remake for PS5, XBSX|S, and PC. And while we only got a teaser trailer that is just over a minute long, we could not be more excited about this news as Dead Space is one of our most beloved franchises around here. Take a look at the first official teaser for the upcoming remake of Dead Space:
The sci-fi survival horror classic Dead Space returns, completely rebuilt from the ground up by Motive Studios to offer a deeper and more immersive experience. Harnessing the power of the Frostbite game engine and next-generation consoles, this remake brings jaw-dropping visual fidelity and improvements to gameplay while staying true to the original. Dead Space will be available on PlayStation®5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
Isaac Clarke is an everyman engineer on a mission to repair a vast, sprawling starship, the USG Ishimura, only to discover something has gone horribly wrong. The ship’s crew has been slaughtered and infected by some alien scourge…and Isaac’s beloved partner, Nicole, is lost somewhere on board.

Now Isaac is alone with only his tools and engineering skills as he attempts to uncover the nightmarish mystery of what happened aboard the Ishimura. Trapped with hostile creatures called “necromorphs”, Isaac faces a battle for survival, not only against the escalating terrors of the ship but his own crumbling sanity.

The news of a new Dead Space game isn’t something that caught us completely by surprise. We last reported on rumors that this was coming, only we did not know what form it would come in- as a remake or a reboot or a sequel.
One other interesting bit of info was that EA mentioned that the game will feature an “improved story, characters” to boot, which means things may change for Isaac and that this could be the signs of an impending reboot plan but we will see. Of course, this all depends on sales and the like but you can bet we will be picking this up. But we won’t pre-order. That would be insane. This is EA we are talking about. But even if this news has us taking a grain of salt or two with it, it definitely feels a lot sweeter to know we can once again return to the iconic Ishimura.
No confirmation yet on a release date.
