A Glimpse of the Updated USG Ishimura Is the Last Dead Space Remake Update of 2021

By | September 12, 2021

While EA Motive has shared a brand-new look at Dead Space Remake’s USG Ishimura, it also revealed that this would be the last update for 2021.

Motive shared the news on Reddit in a post that explained a bit more about what the team is focusing on and how it is taking fans’ feedback to heart.

“Everything we showed was a work in progress which means that we’ll be working on things like Isaac’s suit, the aesthetic and ambiance of the Ishimura,” EA Motive’s CM_Ythisens wrote. “We’re doing work to ensure it has the right level of wear and tear. For example, here is an early work in progress clip showing some of the ways that the team is going to be giving that worn look to the Ishimura.”

They continued to say that the team is going to “be heads down now working on the game, taking some time to review all the thoughts, theories, and suggestions you’ve all shared with us. We look forward to showing you how you’ve helped shape the game next year when we’re further in development!”

The behind-the-scenes look (which you can see here) of the Dead Space Remake is all about the USG Ishimura and how the team is making the ship and main location of the Dead Space Remake into the terrifying place it will end up being. As an added bonus, we get a look at an idle animation of Isaac Clarke!

This final update follows a dev livestream where EA Motive discussed combat, graphics, story tweaks, and unveiled that Gunner Wright would be back to voice Clarke.

The Dead Space Remake is a fully next-gen rework of the 2008 horror classic and, while there is no official release date or window, we do know that it will be released on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
