Dead Space 3 Interview: Sci-fi Survival Horror Gets a Multiplayer Make-over

PlayStation Blog: Next February sees the release of the third main entry in EA’s critically lauded sci-fi survival horror series, Dead Space. While the first two games followed very similar templates, the latest installment really mixes things up by introducing full co-op play to the main campaign. The optional drop-in, drop-out multiplayer lets a second player join in the story as new character Sergeant John Carver. While the game is fully playable as a solo experience, if you play with friend you’ll have an expanded story and get to experience a number of extra sequences and set-pieces. We sat down with the game’s producer Steve Papoutsis to find out how – and why – developer Visceral Games has implemented this new system and what fans of the series can expect from reluctant hero Isaac Clarke’s latest adventure. (Dead Space 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

The good news is that you aren’t forced to deal with a dumb AI partner. The bad news is that another Survival horror series has lost its way. Fighting humans? That isn’t scary..

AI partner or not they've still designed the game around co-op and the horrible character thats with you is still part of the story.
