A livestream from Dead Space’s remake coming Tuesday will share more details about the developers’ new vision for the horror classic.
Dead Space remake creative director Roman Campos-Oriola will be joined by senior producer Philippe Ducharme tomorrow, Tuesday 31 August at 10:00 / 13:00 ET to preview an early development on Motive’s Twitch channel.

In a press release, EA says that the livestream will debut footage from an early prototype of the game that is intended to “illustrate Motive’s vision of Dead Space in motion for society.” In addition to Campos-Oriola and Ducharme, the livestream will feature members of the Dead Space Community Council, Motives’ officially designated fan group that has been asked to consult on remakes.
The Dead Space remake trailer showed a brief but tantalizing look at the rebuilt Ishimura ship, a sobbing Necromorph threatening in the distance and the main character Isaac Clarke. And while everything looked fantastically completely rebuilt in the Frostbite engine, we’ve been desperate to see more from the remake since it was unveiled.
Motive has said that its remake of Dead Space will have “an improved story, characters, game mechanics and more”, and it sounds like we’ll learn more about what it means tomorrow. It’s probably a little too early to expect a release date, but a recent report from Venture Beat suggests we’ll see the remake next year.
