Dead Space Remake New Game Plus Features
The New Game + mode in the Dead Space remake will feature the following new additions:
- Level 6 Advanced Suit
- New Phantom Variant Necromorphs
- Secret Ending
While the game’s achievements/trophies had already revealed the existence of a new secret ending in the remake, this is the first official confirmation. It has now been revealed that this new ending can only be unlocked by completing the Dead Space remake in New Game Plus mode. The mode will also offer a new Phantom variant of Necromorphs in addition to a Level 6 Advanced suit for the game’s protagonist, Isaac Clarke. It looks like the developer is offering fans and completionists plenty of reasons to revisit the game after seeing the end credits.
Previously, details regarding the review embargo for the Dead Space remake were revealed. The review embargo is expected to end sometime on Thursday, January 26, 2023, a day prior to the game’s release on January 27, 2023.
Third-person sci-fi horror shooter Dead Space is a remake of the original game from 2008. The year is 2058, and Isaac Clarke is searching for his girlfriend, a doctor who once worked on the mining spaceship USG Ishimura, when he discovers that it has been taken over by Necromorph aliens.
The remake is developed using the Frostbite Engine, with all the systems being rebuilt from the ground up and new graphical features, like volumetric and dynamic lighting, being added. The game will also benefit from the solid-state drive systems found in newer consoles to provide a seamless transition between levels without the need for loading screens.
