Dead Space is one of the best new franchises of the generation, and we can't wait to hear about the third installment.
It's probably a ways off, but it seems an insider has enlightened Siliconera with some important baseline information.
Firstly, there will be a setting change; rather than a spaceship, we'll be playing on a mysterious icy planet called Tau Volantis. Secondly, protagonist Isaac Clarke will return (well, of course he will!) and at the start of his third adventure, he crash-lands on the aforementioned planet. He strikes out to find shelter, where he also stumbles across other survivors, including Ellie, who you might remember from the first title.
Thirdly, it seems Ellie, Isaac, and a new character, Jennifer, will be traveling together. That doesn't mean we'll have allies this time around; it just means we won't feel quite so alone…right? Lastly, it seems the enemies in the game are being described as "the hive mind," whatever that means. All we know is we definitely want to learn more, as Dead Space 3 will undoubtedly be a huge production.
