Dead Space 3 E3 Demo Showed Off Action, Less Scares
Onstage at EA’s E3 press conference, Dead Space 3 was just shown off. In the last few days, we’ve seen screens and logos, and this morning we heard that it would feature co-op rather than competitive multiplayer.
Now, we’ve seen the co-op in action, and while it looked cool, it certainly seemed to take away the suspenseful scares that the series is known for. Instead, we saw combat rolls, action sequences, and what looked to be universal ammo. While none of this means that Dead Space 3 will be a bad game, it certainly seems that we won’t have the horror subtext this time around.
No word yet on whether the game will have a separate single player campaign, but we’re sure to get more info once E3 officially opens tomorrow. Dead Space 3 will hit stores in the winter of 2013.
Game Front is on-site at E3 2012 all weekend (June 5-7), bringing you daily news, hands-on previews, interviews and pictures. Stay tuned for more PC gaming-focused coverage!
