    Looks like a reimaging from the press leaks.

    I can't imagine how gross it will look with the tech today

    Yeah, a couple of bits in the teaser are directly in the original so I'd guess a remake. Which is fine by me. Been top of my most wanted list for years now.

    Music to my ears. Dead Space is one of my favourite games of all time! I am psyched for this.

    Why can't they just do a new game in the same universe? Dead space isn't old or dated enough to Resi 2 it. Set hundreds year after the events of the last games where Markers and Necromorphs have become a bit of a myth and only believed by zealots or something. Maybe like a city on another planet. Make it a proper horror game where you don't even see a necromorph for ages.
    Loads of world an character building.
    Nah, it'll just be a big bombastic pile of shit.

    Totally. I don't get scared much by games but the original Dead Space properly shit me up. An iconic game world and some amazing sound design. It could get quite predictable with the enemy spawning but the atmosphere was off the charts.

    @creepiest-lizard It takes a LOT of time and money to design a game. Creating a remake will be vastly more efficient, and also a great way to gauge interest in how much its worth investing in taking the series forward.

    @creepiest-lizard

    I believe this is a way of gauging interest for a direct sequel after they shit the bed with DS3.

    I don't think I'll play it - I had my fill with DS1 - but I do think this is great news for people who haven't played any of them yet. Two was ok-ish but too action oriented and I stopped playing about 90% in and never went back. Got three in a sale, played it for less than an hour and abandoned it.

    The first one though is amazeballs sci fi horror. Just the right balance of action versus tension versus jump scares all set in an interesting universe.

    Yeah I enjoyed it a lot. Wasn't scary but pretty intense at stages

    Heh, we were going on about this not long ago in the RE8 thread. Excellent news. I'm going to get some adult sized pampers for maximum immersion.

    Which bit? I found the game very intense and stressful but it wasn't the scariness where you look over your shoulder at night while playing Dead Space

    I'm all over this like the shit on my knickers. Replayed DS1 & 2 just last year and have been dreaming of another, reimagining or not, it could look stunning/terrifying on today's tech.

    Lets hope EA don't interfere with game development like they did on 3 (and some of 2) 3 was awful compared to 1 and 2. The graphics of 1 and 2 (and no doubt 3) still looked good when I replayed on xbox one via B/C few years ago

    This is a safe space Jambo, it's okay to admit you shit your knickers at that bit. My knickers were certainly shit. Twice.

    Haha, oh THAT bit. I completely forgot. Yeah for real that fucked me up I won't lie. I wouldn't mind a full game of that tbh.

    If they kept with the current continuity, humanity would probably be extinct or only existing within scattered pockets on isolated colonies small enough to escape notice or contact. Or remnant survivor groups drifting on ancient ships. Anything that raised attention would alert a Brethren Moon and they'd be harvested anywhere they settle since they can't drift in space forever.

    Hence the rumours of it being a reboot sounding more plausible. There is no more human civilisation post Dead Space 3.

    There are ways of getting out of the corner they wrote themselves into I guess, such as hiding people in cryogenic storage for thousands years to hopefully wake up when the Brethren Moons are dormant again

    @Cappy
    Yeah I'm not up on the story as I never finished 3 but I'd be happy if they just pretended that one didn't exist..or, as you said, it's so far in the future that it doesn't matter.
