Following last week's potentially inadvertent leak of the Dead Space 3 logo – that will most probably change before release – we now have a slew of new rumors and scuttlebutt about Dead Space 3, and how it may be trading in dark and narrow hallways, for bright and open environments.
The rumored leak comes from Siliconera, who claims to have a mole in Electronic Arts that has been reporting news of Dead Space 3.
Apparently, Isaac Clarke will crash land on a frozen planet named Tau Volantis in DS3, and survival horror gameplay will take place in extreme white-out blizzard conditions. Enemies are now referred to as “the hive mind,” with no reports of them having anything to do with necromorphs, or the marker.
That's pretty much all we can tell you without getting into more spoiler-based content, but if you'd like to find out more about the (rumored) story in Dead Space 3, read below.
WARNING: May contain Dead Space 3 spoilers:
"Early in Dead Space 3, Isaac crash lands on the planet. He believes he may be the only survivor and makes his way to an abandoned waystation, which he uses for shelter from the snowstorm. There he finds a survivor who is severely injured. Isaac speaks to the near dead comrade who reveals there are other survivors that trekked off to another facility. One of them is Ellie, a key character from the original Dead Space game. Isaac grabs a snowsuit and heads into the blizzard.
Later in the game, Isaac reunites with Ellie and a new character named Jennifer. The trio scale a mountain, but Jennifer is reluctant to do so. She’s a tech type excited over finding a codex and plans to reverse engineer research by a group called Rosetta to gain access to it. As they climb up the mountain, they hear a howl from below, but cannot spot what kind of creature made the sound." - Siliconera
