Dead Space 3 confirmed - Report

Electronic Arts affirms existence of new action game following several info leaks, says first official footage will be shown during company's E3 briefing next week.

Dead Space 3 has been confirmed, and Electronic Arts will show off the action game's first official footage next week during the publisher's media briefing at the 2012 Electronic Entertainment Expo, according to a statement provided to IGN.

Dead Space 3 will be officially announced next week, EA says.

EA's 2012 E3 briefing is scheduled to take place on Monday, June 4, at 1 p.m. PDT. GameSpot will be on hand during the presentation to relay whatever information about the project is divulged.

EA first spoke of Dead Space 3 over a year ago during a financial call, but has not offered much in the way of official details since. Earlier this month, it was reported that Dead Space 3 would bring co-op to the franchise. This claim was bolstered just yesterday when nine new purported images from the game leaked and showed series hero Isaac Clarke fighting alongside a partner.

The most recent entry in the Dead Space series was 2011's Dead Space 2, which shipped for the PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 to a warm critical reception.

I haven't found any of the Dead Space games to be scary, but they are creepy and the atmosphere of the games is what draws me in. I couldn't care less about co-op though, and I am getting tired of the overall push to make everything multiplayer. It isn't necessary

@TevoxZi - I totally agree. I didn't click with the first. It had great sound design but it wasn't scary or particularly engaging. The second was much better. One of my favourite games from last year. It's got me looking forward to the third installment.

 @doolindesperado I'm quite the opposite. I didn't find either of the games scary, except I found the 2nd a lot better from the two, but to each their own. :)

Hope the coop thing would be Multiplayer or something related not with the original story or campaign, it will ruin the atmosphere and turn into a Resident Evil 5 liked game :)

Space engineer:"A marker has gone planet side?"

Colony woman: "yep, I bet they didn't see that one coming"

Necromorph: "All your base are belong..wait err, GRAAAAGLE!"

Narrator: "and at the end of it all. Humans learned that it was the trees who were their greatest ally"

 

I like to think the plot would go something like that for the 3rd game.

If Issac pretty much went mentally insane during DS2, then he will probably just become outright braindead in DS3.

 

Damn, Necromorphs. You scary.

I hope it's more like the first one.  That game was one game you did not play without the lights on.

 @UnwantedSpam That's why they have an army of Isaac clones, ready to replace the old braindead one.
