Visceral has confirmed that a new Dead Space game is in the works, and Isaac Clarke’s life isn’t looking any less gruesome.
Dead Space 3 finds Isaac stranded on Tau Volantis, a hostile planet rimed with ice and infested with a new, more powerful breed of necromorph. Here, you’ll fight against subzero temperatures, omnipresent danger, and the maddening desolation of Tau’s snowbound landscapes. But you don’t have to fight alone.
For the first time in Dead Space history, you’ll be able to team up against the terror. Drop in or drop out of the game at will using a fully-integrated co-op system where Isaac is joined by Earthgov Sergeant John Carver.
Dead Space 3 will launch (rather appropriately) in the dead of winter: February 2013.
