Dead Space 3, NOT yet announced, will be set on an ice planet, and NOT in space, so says reports.
This news comes from an insider source who reported on the details to Siliconera. And follows an Israeli news show which reported on seeing a Dead Space 3 poster or sign when they were touring an EA office.
Dead Space 3 is reportedly set upon an ice planet that Isaac crash lands to, instead of being set on the Tau Volantis spaceship.
Apparently Isaac finds himself as the only survivor on this mysterious, cold and dreaded place, but later learns that Ellie Langford has also lived, but is in another location with a group of people. A new character named Jennifer will be introduced, and Isaac will run into new enemies called “the Hive Mind”.
Sounds good to me!
Here is a video review of Dead Space 2.
