I don’t know if this series reminds me more of Alien or The Thing. Electronic Arts released a 20 minute gameplay demo of Dead Space 3 featuring some amazing graphics, interactive scripted moments, new co-op gameplay and a big ass boss known as the Nexus.
Most of the demo’s gameplay takes in some incredible outdoor expanses of the icy planet, Tau Volantis where our hero Isaac evidentially got stuck. I can’t quite tell if this is gearing up to be more or less scary than the earlier games but there is plenty of action, gore and mutating, pant-necromorphs. Oh and a huge friggin drill.
If you need to catch up on your Dead Space, Amazon has Dead Space 1 and 2 for next to nothing:
