Dead Space Remake

According to the latest leaks, the remake of Dead Space will have many surprises. It appears as though this remake of the iconic horror game will have an alternate ending. The information is making rounds after a leak of a list of trophies. But as of writing, nothing is confirmed yet.

  • According to Game Rant, as the original game is turning 15 this year there is no doubt many fans know the Visceral Games’ 2008 survival horror like the back of their hands. Therefore, they’ll know everything there is about the story. However, to avoid the feeling of repetition and familiarity, it seems the devs are planning to add some new elements to the upcoming remake.

  • As the release date is coming closer (27 January 2023), gameplay footage from the Dead Space remake is turning up on the internet. It features two hours from the campaign and provides some major insight into what players can expect. The leaks don’t end here, perhaps to keep the fans excited for the release. A list of trophies for the upcoming game highlighted something that was not in the original game.

Dead Space: Alternate Ending Rumor

According to the shrewd observation of The Gamer, the trophy list hints at an alternate ending in the remake. Out of 48 trophies, one of the secret achievements is “Reunion”. Its accompanying description states, “See the alternative ending on any difficulty mode”.

  • The information lacks a clear hint as a backup for the rumor. Therefore, it’s hard to say precisely what this other ending could be. Some are suspecting it’s a drastic divergence from the canon ending. Overall, even when nothing is sure, there is no doubt many fans have some theories about what it could be.
