Dead Space 3 will discontinue the not so lovable competitive multiplayer that Dead Space 2 used, instead developer Visceral Games is now focusing on introducing drop in/dropout co-op gameplay. This according to a NeoGaf Forums user who got a hold of the latest issue of Game Informer Magazine and posted the details.
Along with the addition of co-op gameplay, the game will see a host of other features. Gamers can combine different weapons, such as the Plasma Cutter and Ripper to create unique combination guns. Unitologists pose a threat now and will also use cover when attempting to blow Issac Clarke to pieces. Dead Space 3 will have zero gravity space sections, dark corridors, along with a host of new dangerous enemies. Co-Op will also add new cut scenes and interactions between Isaac and Carver. The game also looks set to implement a new cover system which we are sure will have hard core fans screaming bloody murder.
Who is Carver you ask? John Carver is a fellow engineer from the planet Uxor who looks set to be Issac’s co-op teammate in Dead Space 3. Carver will have his own rig with a darkly red glow, which makes him look more villain then side-kick hero, don’t trust him already. Visceral Games has revealed that the storyline this time around will be less linear and will allow the gamer to enjoy optional side-missions. Visceral still has a lot of work left to do until the game releases in 2013, but already it is looking very promising.
