Set on the frozen world of Tau Volantis, Issac Clarke races to find what might be a final cure to the Necromorph plague.
Dead Space 3 will not only feature a full Single Player campaign, but the Campaign will also include drop-in and drop-out Co-Op. Co-Op partners will take on the roll of Earth Gov solider John Carver, who's past will be properly revealed during the Co-Op campaign itself. Having Carver along will not only add a helping hand but will also open up additional gameplay options to both players.
You can check out the official announcement trailer here or below.
The Campaign will also feature side missions for the first time in franchise history. No competitive Multiplayer component was announced.
Dead Space 3 will release on Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 3 in February 2013.
I'm very much looking forward to the game, though I confess I find it extremely silly that Clarke and Carver are wearing winter-wear over their suits. Suits that can survive just fine in the cold vacuum of space. That's just silly.
