One of the most exciting features of the Dead Space Remake is the introduction of new gameplay mechanics, such as the ability to use the environment to take down enemies and an enhanced melee combat system. The game will also include a new difficulty mode, “Survival Mode,” which will challenge even the most seasoned Dead Space veterans.
In the upcoming remake, Isaac Clarke will have a voice actor, with actor Wright returning to play the role.
