EA Motive will also expand accessibility options, so that no one is left without fear.
Maybe in space no one hears you screamBut if you shout in your living room, even the neighbor across the street will find out. And that is exactly what Electronic Arts is looking for with Dead Space Remake, to put fear back into the bodies of veterans of the saga and to terrorize all those who never played the original, but now on PS5, Xbox Series and PC. A recreation that seems to have things very clear in order to revitalize this adventure, since EA Motive promises improve dismemberment mechanics which are one of the pillars of the saga.
In an interview for IGN, the creative director Roman Campos-Oriola assures that the studio wants to improve this iconic aspect of the gameplay from Dead Space, which allowed you to chop up the limbs of enemies in combat, or rather forced you to do so if you wanted to have a chance of survival. EA Motive not only wants make the gameplay “more gore”, but rather “evolve” these mechanics to offer more possibilities players in combat.
And with it, they also seek expand accessibility options of the title, so that a greater number of players can enjoy the experience. “Something that is also very important to us, that was not there 12 years ago … are all those options or different ways to play to the game if necessary. All these accessibility elements will undoubtedly be something important for us in order to open the Dead Space experience to a wider range of people they didn’t get a chance, or couldn’t play the game when it was released. “
Dead Space Remake is in development, without a release date for the moment. A return to USG Ishimura that will not only be much more gore and violent than the first time, or so Campos-Oriola’s words seemed to indicate, but will also recreate the game’s graphics, sounds and mechanics from scratch to update the experience of the best possible way, but keeping its essence intact. This game was the highlight of EA Play Live 2021, but we also had the announcement of the new GRID Legends from Codemasters.
