Dead Space 3


It's not long till Dead Space 3 will be available at retail stores across the globe, however details on the game are still quite sparse. Thanks to a few sources we have got a few extra bits of info that give us insight into what the game will include.

The Entertainment Software Board (ESRB) has rated the game as 'M for Mature' and while this is not one bit surprising, the overall summary that ESRB has given, gives us a little idea on what will be included in the game, including combat scenes and dialogues.

The following summary puts in detail the reason for Dead Space 3's mature rating, which has been given for blood, gore, intense violence and strong language.

"Rating summary: This is a third-person shooter in which players assume the role of Isaac Clarke, an engineer battling a mysterious alien threat. Players use futuristic weapons (e.g., guns that fire explosives, spikes, incendiary shots) to kill various alien creatures and human enemies. The frenetic combat is accompanied by realistic gunfire and screams of pain. Players can also employ melee kills at close range: hand-to-hand combat, stomping down on enemies, using the butt of a weapon to eliminate adversaries. Blood-splatter effects occur when characters incur damage, and some environments depict blood-splattered floors and mutilated bodies; enemies can be seen impaled, decapitated, and dismembered during the game. The words 'f**k,' 'sh*t,' and "a*shole" can be heard in the dialogue."

It's surprising how much information can be picked apart from the ESRB summary, but as this game is not the first in the series, the above information has already been expected. However, the achievement list for Dead Space 3 has also been leaked, and contains some details about the game. If you don't want to risk reading spoilers about the game, keep your eyes away from the bottom of the post, and possibly the internet, until the game is released on February 15th, 2013 on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, otherwise, take a read below.
