Dead Space 3 trailer: 17 minutes of gameplay

Every now and then, something goes forgotten, a delightful surprise waiting to be rediscovered when you first dig your coat out of your cupboard the next winter and put your hand in a pocket. This 17-minute Dead Space 3 gameplay walkthrough isn't quite that old, released by EA earlier this month, but it is a pleasant treat to discover.

The single-player slice sees Isaac escaping a disintegrating spaceship and seeking sanctuary aboard the derelict Roanoke, which naughty necromorphs have infested. Naturally, amputation ensues. Dead Space 3's creative director and senior audio artist are on hand to commentate.

Dead Space 3 is scheduled for release on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 on February 5.
