Description

Dead Space for PC is a remake of the 2008 original horror survival video game of the same name, which was followed by sequels: Dead Space 2 (2011) and Dead Space 3 (2013) and a spin-off ‘universe’ called Dead Space Franchise which included more games, films and graphic novels/ comic books.

About the Game


Set in the year 2508, a dystopian space age future in which the Earth’s resources have been plundered, forcing widespread exploration through the galaxy. Planetcrackers, mining ships that plunder barren planets for their resources, are everywhere and the oldest of these, Ishimura, is illegally mining the planet Aegis VII, which is otherwise lightly populated with colonists.
Meanwhile, some time ago, back on Earth, an alien artefact called the Marker was found and has formed the basis of a new religion, Unitology, under the leadership of Michael Altman – one of the original researchers on the Marker. Later, Aegis VII is found to have a replica of the Marker, this one called the Red Marker, created by Earth Government (who were responsible for the creation and concealment of several Red Markers on various planets.
Unitologists and Earth Government officials form two warring factions in the game. However, experiments in weaponizing the Marker – and its copies – has resulted in what is essentially a zombie army – an infection that turns corpses into undead beings known as Necromorphs – and they begin to emerge just as the colonists and Ishimura crew begin to suffer mental health issues and hallucinations.
Arriving on schedule a while later, the maintenance ship, Kellion arrives to find that most people – all colonists and many Ishimura crew have been turned into Necromorphs. The protagonist is Isaac Clarke whose girlfriend, Nicole Brennan, was the medical officer on the Ishimura and he is frantic to find out what has happened to her.

The Nitty Gritty


The makers have not changed the major features of the game: the characters, the basic plot and so on, but they have adjusted parts of the game (such as Isaac’s voice being provided by the same actor who voiced Dead Space 2 and Dead Space 3 – the 2008 original didn’t have him talk at all) to make its integration with the series more seamless.
The developers have also cut out parts of the game and gameplay that didn’t work as they should – these were not chosen by the developers, rather, they consulted with game fans to ensure they got it right.
Accessibility and graphics/ sounds effects have been improved to modern industry standards, but aside from these fans of the original will easily recognise it as the game they know and love. There are, however, some new features:
The games AI ramps up the intensity with the new Intensity Director which ensures that, for example, a room that was lit on your first playthrough might be in darkness should you need to return to that same place. New enemies spawn in random places – so you can’t ambush them, and Necromorphs can and do wander into rooms you’ve already cleared, so don’t let yourself get too complacent if it all seems to be going well.
Also new to the reboot, the entire ship of the Ishimura is walkable in one continuous shot, with no time delay pauses while each section loads. The anti-gravity boots that kept Isaac jumping from surface to surface in the original are gone and he can float about in pursuit of Necromorphs

Important Characters


Alongside Isaac there is:
  • Nicole herself, who appears to Isaac at random moments

  • Chief security officer Zach Hammond

  • Computer tech Kendra Daniels – who is also, we find out early on, an Earth Government spy sent to try and take control of the situation

  • Challus Mercer, an insane scientist, a survivor from the Ishimura who believes that Necromorphs are a higher form of being, an ascended human – he worships them

  • Dr Terrence Kyne, a survivor from the Ishimura who wants to return the Marker to Aegis VII

  • Dead Space for PC is available for purchase on Instant Gaming for a fraction of its retail price. You will receive an official key and be able to play the game in seconds. Play smart. Pay less.

    DO NOT BUY THE KEY FOR THE EA APP. The EA App is the biggest dumpster fire of a launcher that has come out of anything PC gaming related. If you buy this key, it won't let you even dowload the game, and it crashes so frequently you would go bald before 30.
    • Buy it on Steam
    • Buy it on Epic
    • Buy it anywhere that's not the EA app

    I loved the original Dead Space on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 and i'm not disappointed. The remake holds true to the OG in every way. It was a trip down memory lane. A must buy for die hard fans of the original Dead Space

    Crashes a lot, it's dead space so I gave it a shot. While you can play the game on ps5 and pc using a dualsense you can't have the features of dualsense on pc version like you can on a ps5. A deal breaker for me. Just bcs I don't own a ps5 doesnt mean that I shouldn't enjoy my dualsense full capacity on my pc.
    • Great sound !
    • Good visuals
    • Good story
    • Gameplay is meh, sometimes they will corner you to a wall and you'll get stuck there
    • Face animations are junky.
    • Experienced stuttering while 4k gaming on a 2080 ti oc

    The game is really good, if you like horror games. The visuals are ok, The Calisto Protocol it's better looking, the gameplay is pretty good and story seems to hold up. I like that this is more of a horror shooting game more than getting up close and personal to take them down (after all the action takes ppace in the future).

    The game is still amazing, I recommand it.

    But.....those launching bugs....I really get pissed off of these.

    My game didn't want to launch. So you buy a new game, you've got more than the recommanded config and you can't play due to a launching bug.....

    (I've had to downgrade my screen resolution from 1444p to 1080p and the game could launch)....seriously we're in 2023....that king of bug shouldn't exists anymore at all.

    Big thanks to gamers community for the help (forget about EA for help)....
    • launching bugs (again even in 2023)

    Keep your politically correct remakes. If this is the price for EA making games without all the usual greedy bullshit i won't it it still. Disgustingly unecessary additions instead of new nice content.

    Don't buy Origin/PC key because no achievements are available on EA app. I've problem with GeForce Experience : not optimizing.

    Buy Steam Key instead.

    Otherwise game is very good. A must for survival/horror game.

    Dead Space Remake is a Horrordream

    Good horrorgames are getting rarer in these days, especially triple AAA Horrorgames. Who plays Dead Space Remake will understand why many claimed that calisto protocol is only a shadow of Dead Space.....The game looks fantastic and runs fluid and bug free. Well done devs.
    • Beautiful raytraced grafics
    • Good performance without stutters
    • No tecnical problems or bugs at day 1
