Dead Space 3 is due out in just a few short days, so it's time to start familiarizing yourself with the story that Visceral Games is telling with this third installment of the franchise.
The game, once again, follows the happenings of Isaac Clarke. He has been the protagonist of the Dead Space series since that fateful crash into the landing bay of the Ishimura. In Dead Space 3, the story picks up a few months after the events of the previous game. Clarke and Ellie Langford come in contact with John Carver, a survivor of the Necromorph attack on the planet Uxor. The trio discover Tau Volantis, a frozen wasteland of a planet where they discover that someone had been able to stop a Necromorph outbreak.
Unfortunately, their ship breaks apart upon entry and Ellie is separated from Clarke and Carver. As a result, the two decide to pursue and rescue Ellie in addition to doing their best to solve the Necromorph problem once and for all. Dead Space 3 supports a drop-in, drop-out co-op system that would let a second player join as Carver at any given time. The game actually changes based on whether one or two players are playing, as Carver has a very interesting backstory himself.
