Rumor: Dead Space 3 Details Leak, Isaac Combats Icy Environment

September 26, 2011Written by Alex Osborn

EA’s popular survival horror franchise Dead Space is almost certain to get a third installment, and if a recent rumor pans out to be true, our hero may be headed to a very different environment.

It looks like Visceral Games and Electronic Arts are having a really difficult time keeping Dead Space 3 under wraps, as last week a poster for the game was spotted while an Israeli News Show was taking a tour of the Redwood Shores office.

This time, a ‘reliable source’ has informed Siliconera that some major changes are heading to the third installment, especially in terms of the game’s setting. According to the source, the game begins as Isaac crashes on a planet known as Tau Volantis, “an icy planet where Isaac Clarke has to wade through white-out blizzard conditions.” Our hero also joins back up with Ellie from Dead Space 2 and Jennifer, a completely new character. In addition, instead of Necromorphs, it looks like our favorite engineer’s new adversary is known as The Hive Mind.

While EA has yet to offer any official word on whether or not these reports are true, there’s a good chance this source is accurate, considering the publisher’s shoddy past with keeping secrets.
