EA’s Dead Space remake gets January 2023 release date

Dead Space fans eager to get their hands on EA Motive’s promising remake of developer Visceral Games’ much-loved sci-fi horror classic now have a date to scrawl in their diaries; EA has confirmed it’ll be releasing for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S on 27th January next year.

Announced last July, the Dead Space remake is a ground-up reworking of the 2008 original, promising to raise “the level of horror and immersion to unprecedented heights”. Of course, players still step into the shoes of engineer Isaac Clarke as they take their terrifying journey through the shadowy interior of the mining ship USG Ishimura – battling the nightmarish necromorphs along the way – but EA Motive’s version promises to bring enhanced audio and visuals, alongside other tweaks include improved story, characters, and game mechanics.
