When it comes to Dead Space 3, white is the new black. EA has not yet confirmed Dead Space 3, nor released any information on it, despite a sighting of a Dead Space 3 logo a few days ago on an Israeli news show, of all places. However, a few details have emerged about the new installment – namely, that the continuation of Isaac Clarke’s action-horror adventures takes place on an ice world.
More specifically, the next installment of the suspenseful sci-fi horror franchise is to be set on the blizzard-rent world of Tau Volantis, where Isaac crash-lands after the events of Dead Space 2. He discovers a survivor (let’s hope that this time Isaac doesn’t just watch the man die while fiddling around with his new-found plasma cutter) who reveals that Ellie from Dead Space 2 is also on the planet. Naturally, Isaac goes to find her.
There are a few more rudimentary, story-related details, including one scene where Isaac, Ellie, and a new girl named Jennifer (who is working on some kind of codex), are scaling a mountain to the sound of blood-curdling screams in the distance. Maybe whatever it is is just really happy to see them?
I am a huge sucker for horror games, and based on how much I enjoyed the Dead Space series thus far, I can’t help but be unreasonably excited for this one. Here’s hoping for more details soon!
