Studio behind ‘Dead Space’ remake will host a showcase this week

Dead Space

It seems Motive Studios is finally ready to show off what its been working on for the past few years, as the developer has just announced a livestream for March 11, involving the Dead Space remake.

“Motive invites you to the latest in their series of early looks at development and what goes into the remake of a game,” the studio announced today, via an event marker on YouTube.

Out of the older titles that gamers have been clamoring to see remade with current-gen visuals, Dead Space was among the least expected, though one that has managed to generate a ton of excitement. The sci-fi horror franchise is, after all, among some of the most revolutionary titles to come out in the seventh generation, spawning two other sequels and a range of spinoff media.

The remake is being developed from the ground up with the Frostbite engine, solely for current-gen consoles in the interest of taking full advantage of their superior hardware and new features.

Motive has promised other improvements as well, including a revamping of the gameplay mechanics used in the original 2007 game, which frankly makes a lot of sense. As acclaimed as Dead Space was in 2008, those mechanics and standards are all but outdated and worn by now.

The Dead Space remake doesn’t have a definitive release date yet, but we know that the game is coming out in 2022. Hopefully, this upcoming livestream will offer a release window as well.
