We already knew EA wanted Dead Space 3 to play like Resident Evil 5, but now we know what they meant: The latest Dead Space 3 rumors suggest there will be a Co-Op Mode that plays like the single-player campaign!
At an EA investors meeting yesterday, the company confirmed a new Dead Space game will be out before March 2013. Likely platforms include Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
IGN sources report the following Dead Space 3 rumors about co-op:
“The cooperative mode mirrors the single-player campaign, but Isaac’s story changes to accommodate it. At one point in Dead Space 3, Isaac and his counterpart stumble, wounded, bloody, and missing chunks of armor, out of burnt wreckage together. In single-player, the same scene happens without the other character. While Isaac may have a psychological breakdown and experience hallucinations on his own, certain traumatic events don’t occur with someone by his side.
Players will also work together to interact with pieces of the environment. In addition, you’ll be able to share ammo with and heal your co-op partner, although there is no revive system — once someone’s down and dead, both players reload the last checkpoint.
Isaac’s armor in Dead Space 3 reflects the slender, angular design of his Dead Space 2 RIG, which is reflected in his co-op partner as well. Crouching is one of Isaac’s most notable new abilities, and it functions as his means of cover as he hides behind small objects. The left/right evasive roll is unquestionably the most significant change we know of in his new skill set. It appears Isaac is more nimble out in the cold.
Telekinesis functions in a more complex manner, as you’ll be capable of rotating items rather than just holding them, which plays into Dead Space 3’s puzzles.
Clarke is, of course, still struggling with his psyche, and experiences hallucinations of monsters. For example: Skyscraper-sized enemies may also come into play. During one scene, Isaac observes a massive worm-like beast bursting from the ice beneath a cliff.”
