Dead Space 2 Features Screaming, Ghosts

If you click below, you can watch a six minute walkthrough of Dead Space 2‘s train station level, narrated by executive producer Steve Papoutsis. The environments are certainly looking a lot busier than the original, but Isaac is now also now hallucinating like a man on the wrong side of the 1960s. There’s also a breath-taking tunnel flight sequence, which might be silly and simple and linear, but it looks oh-so awesome.

Isaac Mute ‘Un: New Dead Space 2 Trailer

'Maybe that was the last one!' exclaimed Isaac, foolishly.

One of my favourite things about the first Dead Space was that Isaac was just this very quiet, practical guy with terrible posture who shouted in disgust whenever bad things happened to him and who wasn’t squeamish about stomping the shit out of Necromorphs. A hero after my own heart. With Dead Space 2 he seems to be getting some all-star treatment, becoming this awesome character who embodies the brand, but I guess that’s OK because the new zero-G sections look loving awesome. There’s only a glimpse of them in this new single-player trailer, but have a look and see what I mean.

The Frighteners: Dead Space 2

They’re calling this the lullaby trailer, which means it’s soundtracked by a spooky rendition of a children’s song. Nothing spookier than that, eh F.E.AR. franchise? Better than being soundtracked by inappropriately shouty rock music, anyway. We’ve seen a fair bit of Dead Space 2 already, and I think it’s fair to say that it looks a good deal more ambitious than the original. Actually, with the infested city and so forth, I am getting a bit of a Bioshock vibe from the environments, but maybe that’s just me. Also, I’m afraid I am one of those freaks who was able to put up with the interface wonkiness on PC and still rather enjoy the game, so I am certainly looking forward to this hitting on the 25th of January.

Dead Space 2: Necromorph Gameplay Reveal

Footage from Dead Space 2‘s new multiplayer beta has come crawling out of the overly large air-ducts of Castle Shotgun. Why did we have those installed again? I forget. Kieron quickly subdued the video it with a pool cue and I’ve posted it beneath for your viewing pleasure. Finally, we get to see what they’re doing with this humans-versus-Necromorphs multiplayer mode without the shield of fancy editing and cinematic camera angles.

And it looks… well… a bit boring, I think. Go see for yourself.

Space Biff: Dead Space 2’s Multiplayer

Blimey, this is a bit more interesting than I was expecting. Dead Space 2‘s multiplayer is a sort of Left 4 Dead type affair, with multiple visored Isaac characters taking on swarms of the nasty necromorph thingies. It’s looking suitably violent and gruesome, with a “coming out of the goddamn walls” aspect that makes these games work. If the team can iron out the flaws from the original and make this multiplayer a smooth ride then we could be in for a treat. Trailer south of here, obviously.

That Dead Space 2 Flight Sequence

So if you missed the press conference streams earlier, here’s the Dead Space 2 stage demo featuring a crazy rocketman sequence. (Plus unhappy-looking guy playing it on a gamepad.)

Dead Space 2: First Game Footage

Another of the big E3 reveals is the Dead Space sequel. The trailer shows zero-G action, some peculiar slow-mo stuff (is that bullet time? I am not sure what’s going on) and lots of the xenomorphs being blasted with space-guns/tools.

Sure? Dead Space 2 Confirmed For PC

He's pondering Gamecube now.

Hang on, I’m just going to fix an old article about Dead Space 2.

“The horror sequel, which isn’t fully confirmed for PC, but is… or is it? Yes/No.”


So yes, after going back and forth more often than a Nick Clegg deciding a Prime Minister, Visceral Minds and EA have settled on releasing the game for PC some time at the beginning of next year. Unless they change their minds again. Which they might. Last month’s trailer is below, just in case you missed it.

Dead Space 2: The Enstampening?

The horror sequel, which isn’t fully confirmed for PC, but is… or is it? Yes/No, has a trailer. Standard teaser stuff for now: no real footage, but confirmation that hideous mutant dead things will once again feature in the franchise’s future, as Isaac wakes up on a heavily populated space station, The Sprawl. Will Dead Space 2 feature more stamping with big metal space boots? We can only say: yes, probably. The trailer is in the depths below…
