Worries that Dead Space 3’s fear factor could be toned down due to the drop-in/drop-out co-op may be a little bit unfounded.
If you’re playing co-op, then veteran protagonist Isaac Clarke will be joined by the red-suited, red-eyed Carver, and they cut through the Necromorph and Unitologist forces together. If you’re playing single-player, though, then Isaac remains alone. No AI companion here, it seems, although there’ll be plenty of blasting action either way.
Dead Space 3 is due out in February 2013. We’ll have a full preview for you shortly.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
