EA and developer Motive Studio unveiled the first gameplay trailer for the Dead Space remake, which showcases intense horror and action.

Announced last year after months of rumors and leaks, Dead Space’s remake will finally hit stores in early 2022.

The all-new version of the classic experience will once more follow protagonist Isaac Clarke as he explores the USG Ishimura.

This time, however, the seminal horror game will boast improved graphics, enhanced gameplay, and a vocal protagonist. Apart from screenshots and a few other glimpses, little of the remake has been seen in action until now.

Though Isaac stars as a silent protagonist in the original, the remake features the voice of Gunner Wright (Dead Space 2 and 3). Notably, Isaac can be heard for a few seconds early in the trailer.

The first look additionally reveals glimpses at Dead Space’s zero gravity sections, necromorphs, and some of the more challenging threats.

In recent months, EA and Motive Studio have offered a drip-feed of information about the eagerly-anticipated remake.

One such detail made the rounds several days ago when developers confirmed that Dead Space will now feature a no-cut camera. This also means players will be able to explore the entire ship without having to contend with loading screens.
