A few weeks ago, EA revealed that a new entry in the Dead Space series will be released during the company’s current fiscal year (which ends March 31, 2013). Today, the publisher revealed a new teaser trailer for the game and confirmed that it’s definitely Dead Space 3.
While the trailer (which you can find above) doesn’t come out and say it belongs to Dead Space 3, the source code of DeadSpace.com is littered with hidden text revealing the title as well as confirmaing the existence of a co-op mode. But one thing EA is willing to publicly show us is the first details of the game’s plot, which do not include everyone’s favorite necromorph hunter, Isaac Clarke:
While patrolling the planet Uxor, Earthgov Sergeant John Carver witnesses an attack on the Marker Site he guards which changes his life forever. John must now fight his way through a colony now in complete chaos as he begins to discover how important he is in fighting the Necromorph plague.
This is just the start of John Carver’s saga in the Dead Space Universe.
A countdown clock on the site further confirms that Dead Space 3 will receive a proper debut during next week’s E3 Expo.
