Dead Space 3 set on icy planet - rumour

First details of EA's horror sequel surface

While unannounced, it's safe to assume EA is working on a third episode in its successful horror series, and first details have hit the rumour mill today.


According to Siliconera, citing an anonymous source, the game will ditch its typical space ship setting in favour of an icy planet called Tau Volantis.

Isaac will apparently find himself trudging through blizzard conditions after crash-landing on the planet. First tasked with making his way to an abandoned waystation for shelter, Isaac encounters a near-dead survivor who tells him of other survivors who fled to another facility.

According to the report, which gets its info from the same source that accurately leaked details of EA's Syndicate, Isaac gets reacquainted with Ellie of Dead Space 1 fame before encountering a new enemy known as "The Hive Mind".

This comes shortly after Dead Space 3 artwork was seemingly leaked into the public domain via a news program in Israel. Asked for comment on the video, an EA spokesman said: "We don't have any news about the Dead Space franchise at this time."
