Dead Space 3 Officially Announced By EA

Electronic Arts has kicked off their E3 press conference by announcing Dead Space 3, the third main entry in the acclaimed third-person action horror series.

One of the biggest new features will be a two player cooperative mode for the main campaign. Players will again control series protagonist Issac Clarke along with newcomer John Carver, taking on various monstrous enemies. Unlike the first two games, the main environments will be on a snowy planet of some sort that Clarke appears to crash on.

After the demonstration, it was announced that Dead Space 3 is scheduled for  release in February 2013.
