Feast your eyes on the first ever official gameplay trailer of the upcoming Dead Space remake, which retains all the classic horror elements we know and love while being wrapped in stunning/updated visuals. EA and Motive Studios first announced the remake back in 2021, with the goal of reviving the franchise for modern-day consoles. With Halloween just around the corner,  this new gameplay trailer could not have been better timed. The upcoming Dead Space remake will revisit the story of Isaac Clarke as he ventures to the mining ship USG Ishimura, while introducing new narrative and gameplay elements.

Motive Studios has completely rebuilt the game using EA’s proprietary Frostbite engine and the remake will play out as an uninterrupted sequence shot, devoid of any and all loading screens. “We’re also actually creating the entire game as one sequential shot,” explained senior producer Philippe Ducharme. “From the moment you start the game to the moment you end the game, there are no camera cuts or load screens—unless you die. The Ishimura is now fully interconnected, so you can walk from Point A to Point Z, visit the entire ship, and revisit locations you’ve already completed to pick up things you might have missed—that’s all new. It’s now a completely unbroken experience.”

Rossouw ton helps South Africa to consolation T20 win

  Rossouw ton helps South Africa to consolation T20 win Rilee Rossouw hit his maiden Twenty20 international century to set up a 49-run consolation win for South Africa in the third match against India on Tuesday. South African bowlers then combined to bowl out India for 178 in 18.3 overs, but the hosts took the three-match series 2-1 -- their first ever against the Proteas at home -- after winning the first two matches. It was the last match for both the teams ahead of the T20 World Cup in Australia starting later this month and the 32-year-old Rossouw made it count for the tourists.

The gameplay trailer opens with a shot of USG Ishimura in space which has gone silent, following which we get our first look at our protagonist – Isaac Clarke. One of the major differences from the original game is that Isaac is no longer silent. The character is being voiced by none other than Gunner Wright, who was the original voice of Isaac in Dead Space 2 and Dead Space 3. Having a voiced protagonist will help audiences connect to the character and the overall story on a deeper level. Similar to the original title, you will still be slaying hordes of Necromorphs, exploring the ship, and drifting through a bunch of zero-gravity levels. However, there are many more things players will get to experience in a graphically enhanced way.

The upcoming Dead Space remake will boast volumetric lighting and more lifelike, context-appropriate sounds. The game will play out from a third-person camera perspective and players will be able to “repurpose and upgrade Isaac’s engineering tools” in creative ways to kill and chop up foes. The Dead Space remake is currently available for pre-order and there’s even a digital deluxe edition that comes with five exclusive cosmetics (three Unique Suits and two Suit Textures). Dead Space will be playable on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC and is due out on January 27, 2023.
