Dead Space 3 might not hit shelves until next week, but that doesn't mean you can't check out the game's launch trailer a week in advance. EA and Visceral Games have released that very trailer this morning and it looks great.
If you haven't been following the game, Dead Space 3 once again revolves around Isaac Clarke but this time he has company. Shortly after the events of Dead Space 2, Clarke comes in contact with John Carver and discovers the frozen planet of Tau Volantis. Upon landing on the planet, Carver and Clarke become separated from Ellie Langford (returning from Dead Space 2) and must battle the hostile terrain and new Necromorph variants as they struggle to reach her.
At any time, a second player can join Isaac Clarke and play as John Carver who has what appears to be a fascinating back story himself. Carver struggles with inner demons throughout the game, sometimes leaving Clarke on his own while he battles with his personal trauma in a world of his own. Carver's story seems pretty heavy and we're really looking forward to learning more when the game hits shelves next week.
Dead Space 3 arrives on February 5th on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
