Update: Added debut trailer below.
Original story: EA has just shot over a presser, making the much-rumored Dead Space 3 as official can be.
Everything we’ve already known has been confirmed; there’s drop-in, drop-out co-op, huge bosses, the setting is an ice planet etc etc.
“Dead Space 3 will deliver action and horror on a scale that far exceeds anything we’ve done before,” executive producer Steve Papoutsis sings.
“The game will range from the depths of space and tight, indoor corridors to a harsh new planet with explorable environments that offer new challenges. For fans that love playing alone in the dark, they still can have the classic Dead Space experience that makes the franchise so unique. Likewise, players that want to share that immersive and intense experience with a friend now have that option thanks to the addition of co-op. Either way, the action is intense, the adventure is breathtaking, and the thrills are unforgettable.”
The game will be out in February 2013 for all PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
