Dead Space 3 preview: for those afraid of change

What happens to Dead Space 3 when you get rid of the giant alien bosses? The human enemies? The action-packed co-op sections? Well, it happens to feel a lot like the original Dead Space.

Ever since E3, the producers of Dead Space have been keen to note that fans of the original game can play the game sans fioritures. In this twenty minute video walkthrough, executive producer Steve Papoutsis promised that "the people that really enjoy the single player Dead Space game... that's going to remain the same."

Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel 'resets' the franchise, coming in 2013

Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel 'resets' the franchise, coming in 2013

Electronic Arts' Army of Two franchise is being rebooted. Coming next March is The Devil's Cartel, a game that "resets the series" with a "more intense, mature, and grittier tone." The game is being developed by Visceral Games (the studio behind Dead Space) and will utilize the Frostbite 2 engine (the engine behind Battlefield 3).

The Devil's Cartel has players returning as Alpha and Bravo, two operatives working for Tactical Worldwide Operations (T.W.O., get it?). They will be dropped into Mexico in the middle of a drug war. "Players will need to work together as their objectives unravel, allegiances begin to blur and they face off against a ruthless opposition," EA's press release describes.

Dead Space 3 preview

QUICKTAKE: The third chapter in space engineer Isaac Clarke's saga of terror is set to continue with Dead Space 3, and developer Visceral Games is bringing a few new tricks to the party. Besides being able to play the campaign cooperatively, things like a "lean-in" cover system and the inclusion of human enemies are new series additions--as is a new ice planet, which provides a stark presentational contrast with the series' traditional claustrophobic locales.
