Dead Space Extraction demo hinted

Sounds like there may be a playable demo coming for Dead Space Extraction. A hint was dropped from EA's Dead Space Twitter account, isaacclarke: "Did walkthroughs on 3 Chapters in the game. We also reviewed our super secret special Demo build......guess it's not to secret anymore....".

issacclarke also revealed that the Wii game will likely get an "M" (for Mature) rating. It would be hard for a horror game series like Dead Space to get anything under an M rating. Nothing has been formally announced, but hopefully Dead Space Extraction will be getting a downloadable demo channel like Metroid Prime Corruption had. But then again, with an "M" rating, maybe the demo will be provided on disc with pre-orders? Hopefully we'll hear more soon. For now, it's wishful thinking (rumor).

i think if there is a demo ... it will be on a disc more than anything else.

addnewman5526d ago

why would it be on disc? now with the new sd card solution and they could release it through wiiware or as a channel like they did with the mp3 preview channel

ChickeyCantor5526d ago

Thats the thing, Stuff on your SD card needs to be cashed on your internal 512Mb flash memory.
Basically so the demo needs to be set on your internal memory first before you can play it...so We arent even a step further.

Storage and what format aren't important-not where M rated games for Wii are concerned.

I've , among many others, banged on about the lack of demos for Wii games for ages. would Madworld, NMH,Overkill et al not have benefitted from one? Any new IP on Wii needs a demo, imo, as Nintendo consoles usually have [people that know what they'll get from nunty-more of the same franchises. For 3rd party games esp new IP a demo may become essential and if EA are looking into this on the back of Segas poor sales for Madworld you can't blame them.

So, yeah, however it happens it's a good thing if it can, isn't it?

This would be cool and it would actually let developer make better games.

Dead Space Extraction better than the original Dead Space?

Okaaaaay...

lucian229661d ago

I played all three. Didn't find them fun, just had nothing to play. I don't think I beat third game though. Combat was super clunky, graphics and art design were ugly imo, story in first game wasn't too bad, rest were meh.

Over hyped series imo, also it doesn't help horror games don't scare me, so I guess that's a big reason for me too.

Play Alien Isolation on Hard or Nightmare.

Start on the movie DLC so that you don’t have to play a bunch of campaign in order to find out if you’ll be scared.

lucian229661d ago

I heard that was a good one. Honestly vr games scare me with jump scares because of how the threat feels real.

MIDGETonSTILTS17661d ago

There isn’t an official VR mode, unfortunately.

The audio should pull you right in if you use headphones.

CDbiggen661d ago

Just finished playing the first, enjoyed the fact Isaac was a silent alien crushing psycho doom-guy type. Just started the second yesterday and I'm annoyed he's a talker now and sounds like a regular guy who hasn't been through hell, but I suppose he couldn't remain silent.

VersusDMC661d ago

Dead Space 2 is my favorite followed by 1 then 3. All are good to me though. Just beat all 3 on series X and they hold up.

Xenial661d ago

As simple as 1,2,3.

Extraction, then Ignition.

EA Talks About Closing Visceral And Single-Player Games

The decision to close the studio and shift the focus of the Star Wars game is not a statement about the future for single-player games, EA says.

"'This was just a single-player game [and it] needed to be a live service.'"

What kind of a stupid mindset is that? It didn't need to be a damn live service. Single player games can work and you have the damn Star Wars name attached to it so it will sell well regardless of it having MP or not.

Ashlen2396d ago

How can you say this.

"We are seeing an evolution in the marketplace, and it became clear to us that to deliver an experience that players wanted to come back and enjoy for a long time, that we needed to pivot the design."

And then say this in the very next paragraph.

"It wasn't about, 'This was just a single-player game [and it] needed to be a live service."

I would say "do they really think people are this stupid?" But since people keep buying EA games after all the crap they have done over the years and decades that made gaming worse... I guess, yes, yes they are.
