Dead Space 3 is already on my want list, and the EA press conference made it that much more painful. It’s got everything a successful survival horror game – hell, third-person shooter game – should have. Drop-in, drop-out co-op? Check. Massive Necromorphs? Check. Isaac Clarke??? Check plus. And apparently they’ve found “the source.”
EA showed off some gameplay, which was absolutely over-the-top – intense battle, new item display as you’re picking up ammo and switching guns, and a lot of cursing. They showed off the co-op option, with two players fighting some of the aforementioned massive Necromorphs. Player one had the regular blue green life bar on his back, while the drop-in second player had one that was slighter darker blue.
But the best news? The game will be out in February 2013 for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. February! That’s nine months away. Bring it on, Visceral Games!
