Over the past week or so, there has been all kind of reports of the next Dead Space 3 being in Development, with leaks such as Artwork and the Logo, among other things, and now there is new information regarding the plot, and other little details of the inevitable, yet unconfirmed third title.
These Leaks explain several plot points and features that the game could possibly have, so expect a spoiler or two from the previous games. The points include the main character of the previous installments, Issac Clarke, will be returning, along with his mental state dropping rapidly, as reports mention that Clarke will have a 'secondary personality,' that they are calling 'Shadow Issac.' This Shadow will supposedly haunt Issac throughout the game, similiar to the way his dead girlfriend, Nicole did in Dead Space 2. The Shadow self will supposedly be a separate on-screen character which you can see, as it constantly taunts Issac for his failures, both past and present.
Whether or not Issac is losing his sanity, or suffering from hallucinations caused by yet another Alien Artifact remains to be seen.
Along with this, the website Siliconera reported a new location where Dead Space 3 will take place, an ice cold, snowy planet know as Tau Volantis, which is constantly under threats from a dangerous Blizzard. This could possibly bring new gameplay elements into the game, such as Issac needing to seek shelter if the cold becomes too much, and using the cold to his advantage as he fights Necromorphs.
A supposed story point from the game is as follows:
Siliconera also states that the enemies are referred to as the 'Hive Mind'.Early in Dead Space 3, Isaac crash lands on the planet. He believes he may be the only survivor and makes his way to an abandoned waystation, which he uses for shelter from the snowstorm. There he finds a survivor who is severely injured. Isaac speaks to the near dead comrade who reveals there are other survivors that trekked off to another facility. One of them is Ellie, a key character from the original Dead Space game. Isaac grabs a snowsuit and heads into the blizzard.
Later in the game, Isaac reunites with Ellie and a new character named Jennifer. The trio scale a mountain, but Jennifer is reluctant to do so. She’s a tech type excited over finding a codex and plans to reverse engineer research by a group called Rosetta to gain access to it. As they climb up the mountain, they hear a howl from below, but cannot spot what kind of creature made the sound.
Plenty of new information, but whether or not it is true remains to be seen. While EA haven't confirmed anything on a third Dead Space game, the chances of it being true could be likely, as it came from the same source that correctly called out a Syndicate scoop recently.
Either way, the details we have here are interesting, and the new icy planet could be a nice change of pace from the usual space gameplay, with plenty of opportunities for new elements. What's your thought on all of this? Would you like a new snowy environment?
