Dead Space 3 will send players on a frightening new adventure in the dead of winter 2013. After crash-landing on a hostile new planet known as Tau Volantis, hero Isaac Clarke discovers that this planet could be the key to ending the Necromorph infestation. In his violent hunt for answers, Isaac must battle subzero, icy conditions and deadly, highly-evolved enemies including all-new Necromorphs, gigantic boss creatures and misguided zealot humans. Players can choose to team-up with a friend anytime in the game with the drop-in/drop-out co-op feature.

Steve Papoutsis, executive producer on Dead Space 3, says, "Dead Space 3 will deliver action and horror on a scale that far exceeds anything we�ve done before. The game will range from the depths of space and tight, indoor corridors to a harsh new planet with explorable environments that offer new challenges. For fans that love playing alone in the dark, they still can have the classic Dead Space experience that makes the franchise so unique. Likewise, players that want to share that immersive and intense experience with a friend now have that option thanks to the addition of co-op. Either way, the action is intense, the adventure is breathtaking, and the thrills are unforgettable."

Here is the E3 2012 Press Conference for Dead Space 3, which includes a look at some of the monsters and obstacles players will face on Tau Volantis. A live co-op demo was also presented. Take a look:



Dead Space 3 will launch in February 2013 for the PS3. Xbox 360 and PC.
