While much of Dead Space 3 will see Isaac Clarke on Tau Volantis, EA has released seven new screenshots to show off gameplay that takes place off of the ice planet.
“…the critically acclaimed Dead Space™ series will return with Dead Space 3. Delivering award-winning suspense, horror, action and audio, Dead Space 3 will send players on an exhilarating and hair-raising new adventure in the dead of winter 2013. After crash-landing on a hostile new planet known as Tau Volantis, hero Isaac Clarke discovers that this planet could be the key to ending the Necromorph infestation. In his violent hunt for answers, Isaac must battle subzero, icy conditions and deadly, highly-evolved enemies including all-new Necromorphs, gigantic boss creatures and even misguided zealot humans. Fortunately, Isaac is not alone. Players can choose to team-up with a friend anytime in the game with the fully integrated drop-in/drop-out co-op feature. Players that choose to take down the terror together will experience additional story details and gameplay mechanics only found when playing as the co-op character, Earthgov Sergeant John Carver."
Dead Space 3 is being developed for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, with a release date of February 5th in North America and February 8th in Europe. We've included a 17 minute video below that will give you a better idea of what to expect from the game, along with the new screenshots. Interested in learning more? Check out our recent coverage:
