EA confirms Dead Space 3

Dead Space 3 has been confirmed by Electronic Arts.

Global video games giant Electronic Arts (EA) has announced that a third game is to be released in the science-fiction survival horror series Dead Space.

EA's confirmation will end the continual speculation on the game's existence as material repeatedly leaked frequently out of the title's development team. Most recently, a South African retailer accidentally put the game up for pre-order.

Dead Space 3 is to be released at some point between now and spring 2013 so gamers can continue the journey of the title's protagonist Isaac Clarke, who will again battle against the Necromorphs that blight outer space.

The game is expected to occur in part on an ice planet known as Tau Volantis rather than the typical claustrophobic confines of space ship as in the previous titles.  He is believed to have crash-landed on the planet with the immediate need to find shelter.

This could bring new gameplay elements such as blizzards and snow as well as rumours of a brand new villain known as the hive mind and a return to the series for Ellie from the first instalment in the series.

Dead Space's Necromorphs are monsters that have been created from an alien virus that brings corpses to life.

The series has sold over four million copies worldwide and received widespread critical success to boot. It has been celebrated for its tense atmosphere, movie-quality script and story and engaging gameplay.

EA has also announced it is going to add another title to the long-running Need for Speed franchise as well as a next-generation reimagining of SimCity. The latter is set for release in the first quarter of 2013.

Despite these exciting announcements, EA has suffered a drop of 400,000 subscribers to its massively multiplayer online role-player game Star Wars: The Old Republic. In February the title boasted 1.7 million players but that figure has fallen to 1.3 million.ADNFCR-1220-ID-801359099-ADNFCR
