Dead Space 3 Gameplay Debut

Dead Space 3Dead Space 3 is on the way and EA has seen fit to release the first official gameplay video/developer talk/marketing nonsense thing.

The video begins with the single player action that we’ve all come to know. The HUD is still as minimal and awesome as ever. The necromorphs still die once you slash up their limbs, although the new one seems to be more resilient than normal.

Then there’s the new co-op gameplay, which Executive Producer Steve Papoutsis says is completely optional. You know, like a bonus that single player guys never have to experience.

It looks like good harmless fun!

But the key word there is harmless. As in, diecast fans have expressed concern over the general lack of horror and the encroaching cover-based gameplay. The part-shooter, part-horror duality reminds me of the F.E.A.R. series actually. We’ll have to see when the full game is unleashed.

Honestly, I like the look of the game and I’m looking forward to trying it out. What are your thoughts?

Dead Space 3 is slated for release February 2013 on PC, PS3 and the 360.
