Dead Space 3 screenshots, a frightful duet
Dead Space 3 screenshots revealed at E3 2012 show off co-op action
Dead Space 3 is set for a winter 2013 release, which means summer down here in South Africa.
The story goes that after crash-landing on a hostile new planet known as Tau Volantis, series hero Isaac Clarke discovers that this planet could be the key to ending the Necromorph infestation. In his violent hunt for answers, Isaac must battle subzero, icy conditions and deadly, highly-evolved enemies including all-new Necromorphs, gigantic boss creatures and even misguided zealot humans.
Fortunately, someone over at Visceral coded in co-op during their coffee break, and Isaac is not alone. Players can choose to team-up with a friend or belligerent internet stranger at any time in the game with a drop-in/drop-out co-op feature. Players that game in pairs will experience additional story details and gameplay mechanics only found when playing as the co-op character, Earthgov Sergeant John Carver.
Dead Space 3 will also feature side-missions to bolster the main plot.
Check out the screenshots below and stay tuned to MyGaming’s E3 coverage as it unfolds.
