Dead Space remake’s trailer shows us that the game shares plenty of the beats of the original, but like The Last of Us‘ recent remake, The Last of Us Part I, is set on offering the best experience possible. This enhanced experience comes from not only graphical upgrades but new gameplay additions as well. EA shared some of the new features players can expect in the remake.

  • The Peeling System: Introduces the ability to break through enemy necromorphs’ specific flesh areas, bones, and tendons to weaken them in different ways, adding more strategy to encounters.
  • The Intensity Director: A dynamic camera that changes what appears in Isaac’s path, such as enemies, environmental effects, and more.

One immediately apparent addition is Issac’s voice. Veteran players of the Dead Space series will instantly remember the protagonist of the franchise being a silent protagonist in the original title. In this remake, he’s been changed to a voiced character, giving a new edge to this upgraded experience and offering a new flavor for those that have played the original.

Dead Space remake is set to launch for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC through the EA App, Steam, and the Epic Games Store on January 27, 2023.

Everything we know about Alan Wake 2
Alan Wake Looking Grizzly In Alan Wake 2.

The original Alan Wake is a game that went through quite a troubled development before it was finally released. After many iterations and changes in scope and direction, the final product was initially a cult hit, but didn't hit the mass market it needed -- at least not initially. After two DLC episodes, a sequel was in the works to build upon the first game and revive some of the elements that had to be cut from the first in order for it to ship, but this was ultimately not meant to be. The sequel was canceled and a smaller downloadable game, Alan Wake's American Nightmare, was released instead.

Since then, we hadn't heard from our intrepid writer until he showed up in a very unlikely place. Featured in the AWE expansion for a completely different game, Control, Alan was back in the picture. With a remaster of the initial game catching everyone up on his first appearance, now was the perfect time to announce that the long-awaited sequel was back in development. We haven't found all the manuscript pages yet, but here is everything we know about Alan Wake 2.
