The World is a Vampire for Isaac Clark (TRAILER)
Visceral Games and EA have dropped a new Dead Space 2 trailer on us, complete with some Smashing Pumpkins and a lot of good things said about the game by various publications. It also gives a few hints at some story — namely, that Isaac Clark is a man of some interest to entities other than monsters who’d like to eat him.
We already know that Dead Space’s protagonist, Isaac, is more or less going crazy in the sequel. We also know that he’s infected with the necromorph virus, to some extent, and that the new game has a lot to do with those Unitologists and they’re crazy reanimation-worshipping religion.
But if you listen closely to the trailer, you start to get the impression that maybe Isaac is wanted for some other reason — maybe for what he knows, maybe for the apparently ineffectual (or less effectual) virus he carries inside him. That suggests to me that dealing with evil humans is going to play a part in Dead Space 2, which is something of a new wrinkle in Isaac’s extended really bad day.
That could be an indication of where the story’s headed for the possible third installment.
