Dead Space 1 and 2 too scary? EA research says so
It has been apparent from the footage shown of Dead Space 3 Visceral has shifted some of the gameplay emphasis away from its horror roots.
EA has responded to the concerns of the fans so far and EA Games marketing boss Laura Miele explained that their research suggested that the first two games were just too scary to play alone.
"We were doing research coming out of Dead Space 1 and 2 and we're really proud of those products," Miele said. "We received feedback to understand how we can take the game out to even more consumers. We were hearing feedback that they love the thriller game, but it was pretty scary, and the obvious next step was that they wanted to play with someone. So we introduced co-op into the game."
She continued, "The horror of Dead Space is still all there. It's still true to its roots and no less scary, but people felt far more comfortable playing it with someone else than they did doing it on their own. Personally, I would rather go to scary movie with my husband rather than sit at home with the lights out watching one on my own. We're looking for that to reach out to consumers that perhaps were not open to Dead Space 1 and 2."
Dead Space 3 is due for release on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in February of 2013.
