The remake of dead space will feature characters who were previously unseen in the original game, but mentioned or heard in audio logs and other forms. dead space is one of the most renowned survival horror games because it mixed the gameplay of something like Resident Evil, updated it a bit and put it in a sci-fi setting. It was incredibly effective and terrifying with the first game in the series with unique settings, gross monsters, creepy body horror, and a quiet protagonist to immerse yourself in. By all accounts, it was a massive hit and paved the way for an arguably much better sequel that updated a lot of those ideas and increased the scale.
In a new EA blog postthe EA Motive team noted that the dead space remake will take in all the learnings and advances from the latest entries in the series and also mix them with new ideas. As we already know, the remake will give Isaac a voice again, include polished new sections that were cut from the original game, and add all sorts of new improvements. One of the new things about the game is that characters who were previously only heard in the audio logs, but never seen, will get real screen time in the remake.
“It’s true, we wanted it to fit better into the general history and lore of the dead space universe that evolved after the first,” says creative director Roman Campos-Oriola. “For example, Isaac has a voice here, just like in Dead space 2 and Dead space 3. And some characters that were a bit more secondary, that only appeared in the audio logs, like Dr. Cross, we gave them real screen time. And we wanted to give a little more context and agency to some of the cast characters, like Nicole. So we’re creating a whole series of narrative side quests that will let you see, for example, what happened to Nicole during the outbreak.”
For now, it really remains to be seen how different the two games are from each other. Either way, it looks like the Motive team is putting a lot of effort into providing a great experience for newcomers, but also making sure veterans of dead space. Whether this leads to a remake of the sequel or a new sequel also remains to be seen.
