At EA’s press conference at Gamescom, we finally have a release date for the next installment in the Dead Space series with Dead Space 3. It’ll be scaring shelves on February 5 in the US and February 8 in the UK. We also got some new facts on the new weapon-crafting system that has you using separate parts from different weapons to make your own concoctions. EA showed one with a combination of the Ripper gun that shoots saws with a flamethrower, because the more gruesome, the better right? You’ll also have a chance to enter your own gun concoction on the official website and they might just put it in the game. A Plasma Cutter with mines on the ammo? Don’t take my idea.
We also got a new trailer that shows off some new environments aboard a space ship and everything goes horribly awry. From explosions to Necromorphs popping up everywhere, Isaac just can’t catch a break. Be sure to look out for this title on 360, PS3 and PC this February. A collector’s edition is also planned with exclusive guns and suits.
What do you think about Dead Space 3 so far? Does it look a little too action-packed for your horror taste or will the addition of co-op help or hinder the game? Let us know in the comments and forums
