EA aware of walking a fine line with Dead Space 3
EA Labels boss Frank Gibeau has taken steps to address fans' concerns over the next instalment in the Dead Space series.
Gibeau acknowledged the fans' concerns over the direction Visceral has gone in with Dead Space 3 and offered reassurance that the game will stay true to its sci-fi horror roots.
"We definitely do not want to p*ss off our fans by taking [Dead Space 3] too far from horror," he started off. "What we've tried to do with each instalment is tell a different story about Isaac but at the same time bring in new features and ways to turn the game into a more connected experience."
"So we tried to open up the accessibility of the IP a little bit by adding a little bit more action, but not undermining the horror. We can't not be a horror game because that's what Dead Space is. We listen to the fans and we hear them. We're going to be releasing more assets over the coming months that show you how deep the horror is. It's definitely not getting away from gore or horror, but at the same time it's opening up to a larger audience by adding some elements," he added.
Dead Space 3 is due out in February of next year.
