Dead Space 3 delves further into the secrets of the Necromorphsand the mysterious Unitologists, as you follow Isaac Clarke on his mission tosave humanity from the reanimated, mutated threat. Clarke's quest to discoverthe source of the Necromorph outbreak takes you to Tau Volantis, a key locationin the backstory of the Markers, the mysterious monoliths worshipped by theUnitologists, and which may hold the key to mankind's victory.
Tau Volantis offers a hostile new environment for Dead Space,replacing the series' traditional blackof space with the harsh white snowstorms of this ice planet. As you travel through the frozen wastes you'll need to overcome everything this environment -and it's many side-missions - throws at you, from abandoned encampments andunderworld cities, to treacherous ice-climbs and the ever-ominous threat of anavalanche.
There's new gameplay coming to the series, too, with the introductionof a new co-op mode. Say hello to Sgt John Carver, a fellow Necromorph survivor who can join the campaign in optional drop-in/drop-out co-op. Playing in co-op mode can reveal additional story details, and players will each have a slightly different experience as dementia kicks in, with one player seeing things the other does not.
The RIG (Resource Intergration Gear) suit also returns to displayyour health and weapon count via a holographic display - particularly handy inthe vacuum of space as it tells you how much oxygen you have left.
