While Dead Space’s EA Motives Remake has been described as a faithful return to the USG Ishimura, the developer has also worked to improve the story of Isaac Clarke by adding several quality-of-life updates to the experience. The studio has promised to have no loading screens in Dead Space as it has been rebuilt from the ground up in a new engine and new side quests will follow.

“Despite appearances, this remake is more than a facelift of Visceral Games’ 2008 survival horror game (although it does significantly improve the look of the original). Motive Studio redesigned portions of the game’s setting, the USG Ishimura, to create a more connected environment with more narrative detail to explore, allowing Dead Space to better fit the overall story of the franchise that spawned it, the now sequels, spin away from games, movies and comics,” wrote Jordan Ramée in GameSpot’s Dead Space preview. “This remake is still Dead Space, but it’s a Dead Space that makes parts of it feel brand new again, even to a longtime fan like me.”
