EA steps into the survival horror arena with Dead Space

Electronic Arts might be making their most violent attempt to turn around their sloppy image in what Game Informer introduces as "the most chilling sci-fi horror experience the world has ever seen." Obviously, they want people to get interested in EA's new survival horror franchise, Dead Space. This is, of course, the opposite of Alive Space, which gives children candy and helps astronauts reach those bolts that float out into the vastness of itself. So we can expect something fairly evil for the dead version of space.

Details are coming soon, but as for now, we've got nothing on it. Our issue of Game Informer will roll around eventually, but we'd like something to tell you now. Game Informer's website tells us that if we loved the movie Event Horizon, or horror films, we'll love this game. We'll judge that statement later, but we're glad to see a new horror franchise enter. That way, we can choose between more than Silent Hill, Fatal Frame, Resident Evil, and Condemned. Well, maybe we'll get another Siren game in the future, but probably not.

1. Is it another FPS? :(

2. Raise your hand if you thought that was an announcement for Bioshock for the PS3 with added content and enemy types.

3. I can't wait for Dead Space: STREET

4. Being a a massive fan of Event Horizon, my interest has been aroused.

5. I was just asking myself the other day what happened to all the horror games

6. I would rather another Fatal Frame, just amped up! Those had some good scary moments that a new version could exploit in HD well - and its not an fps.

7. "...if we loved the movie Event Horizon,..., we'll love this game."

That's all I needed to know. I will definitely PASS on this game.

Event Horizon sucked hairy, sweaty, donkey nuts.

8. If another Siren game were to come, I would, contrary to other games, gladly welcome an action-injection as well as a bigger focus on combat instead of being one giant sneak mission. Who owns that IP btw?

9. EA. The same ea that was lazy, delayed and put at 30fps for the ps3 and kicked sony in the balls, are now apologising, right.

12. @2

I too thought it resembled Bioshock (a bit to much actually)

Posted at 2:18AM on Sep 15th 2007 by Anthony DeGrazia (KillerAJD)

13. So is this EA's attempt at "Bioshock in SPAAAAACE!!!"?

Posted at 5:02AM on Sep 15th 2007 by Nick

14. Fun fact fo da kidz: dead space is the air stored in your lungs when you breathe in.

15. I'd get excited, but EA seems to be releasing tripe for the PS3 platform (and most other platforms). They are honestly the McDonald's of the video game industry churning out derivative junk and lacking any real innovation. Combine this with the fact that EA has an obvious bias against the PS3 (or perhaps Microsoft has offered some finanical gain for that bias), I am not looking forward to any title for the PS3 from EA unless its exclusive and running at glorious 60fps in 1080p mode. When EA hires some real developers not afraid of a little challenge (and not the DeVry Diploma of Gaming graduates they seem to be hiring), I will take them seriously.
