Dead Space 3 detailed in Game Informer

Set on ice planet Tau Volantis. No competitive multiplayer.

First details on Dead Space 3 have come out of the latest issue of Game Informer.

The co-op shooter, to be announecd on Monday during EA’s E3 press conference, is set on the ice planet Tau Volantis. It will have “zero gravity space sections, dark corridors, and all the other things that made the series what it is.” The game has more universal ammo pick-ups, a cover system, and nixes the competitive multiplayer feature. Co-op promises to add new cutscenes and interaction between Issac and his new partner Carver. But, “if you play single player you’ll hear everything you need to hear to get the whole story.”

New necromorphs include Fodders, Feeders, something developer Visceral calls “The Snow Beast,” and a 30-story tall centipede called the Nexus. Feeders are “what happens when a human isn’t actually infected by a Swarm or by a Divider head,but by necessity ends up eating the flesh of a turned necro.” Fodders can transform into two different types of necromorphs, depending on how you take them out. Unitologists are also a threat, now, with screenshots showing them firing at Issac.

You’ll be able to combine your weapons. For example, you can attach your Plasma Cutter to your Ripper. Visceral didn’t detail how these modifications would work, but the Game Informer article notes enemy drops include “scrap metal” and “tungsten.”

Expect more details on Monday.
