have just recieved images of EA’s Redwood Shores Studio new sci-fi horror /
survival horror console game. In the brilliant, bold and often-bloody Dead Space™
gamers will step into a third-person sci-fi survival horror experience that
promises to deliver the ultimate in psychological thrills and gruesome action.
It is EA’s objective to make “the scariest game ever made”‘
In the future, Earth’s appetite for resources has become a major motivator
for deep space exploration. Immense, privately-owned and operated mining ships
called “planetcrackers” orbit planets and use sophisticated equipment
to carve out entire city-sized chunks of rock, and reduce them to component
elements and raw ore.
Communications with one of these ships, the USG Ishimura, have ceased while
the ship is engaged in deep space mining operations.
In Dead Space, players step into the role of engineer Isaac Clarke (obviously
influenced name) – an ordinary man on a seemingly routine mission to fix
the communications systems aboard a deep space mining ship (as you do). It is
not long before Isaac awakes to a living nightmare when he learns that the ship’s
crew has been ravaged by a vicious alien infestation. He must fight through
the dead silence and darkness of deep space to stay alive.
Producer Glen Schofield commented, “This team has worked on some tremendous
properties but we have always wanted to work on something that was darker and
creepier. We are all such huge fans of the horror and sci-fi genres; we wanted
to create the most terrifying game we could, and keep the player on the edge
of his seat the entire time.”
Dead Space is expected to be with us in the winter of 2008 for the PLAYSTATION?
