Now Playing: We Played 3 Hours of The Dead Space Remake

The Dead Space remake was originally announced at EA Play 2021. EA Motive previously worked on two games in a galaxy far, far away--Star Wars: Squadrons and the story campaign for Battlefront II. Visceral Games created the survival-horror series starting back in 2008.

Coming to PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S, Dead Space will skip last-gen systems even though there were rumors of a PlayStation 4 version previously. People also may have thought the remake might hit PS4 and Xbox One since so many new games are still shipping on them. But that's not the case here. GameSpot's Dead Space preorder guide provides info on where and how to purchase the game.

GameSpot's Dead Space preview offers an optimistic perspective ahead of the game's launch, saying, "... Motive Studio has transformed the game's story and visuals for the better."
