The game has yet to be officially unveiled, but that hasn't stopped the baseline info and rumors from spreading.
The first details seem to be accurate, but it has generated all sorts of new questions. One of them involves the protagonist, Isaac Clarke: how'd he get to the planet of Tau Volantis after the events of Dead Space 2 ?
Well, according to Siliconera , Isaac is sent on a mission to rescue a woman on Tau Volantis and bring her back to Mars. Strangely, there's a warrant out for Isaac's arrest; EarthGov wants him for some reason, so he accepts the mission to get away from the authorities. And apparently, Ellie goes with him. Now, here come some potential spoilers…
POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD!!!
So it seems that Isaac has a split personality in the new adventure, as "Shadow Isaac" taunts the "normal Isaac" at every turn. This shadow will ridicule him for doing something stupid and evidently, the two sides of Isaac will continue to bicker throughout the game. How "Shadow Isaac" plays into the overall story arc, we don't know. But won't it be interesting to find out?
Can't wait for Dead Space 3 .
