^Doesn't look very scary!?
There will be a co-op mechanic in Dead Space 3. Also most fans would be pleased to hear that the tacked-on competitive multiplayer that was criticized so much in Dead Space 2, won’t return in this game.
There will also be a cover system which kind of confirms what type of game the developers are trying to design. The game will be a lot more action-oriented this time around, and the co-op mode will feature new cutscenes between Isaac and Carver.
Unitologists will also pose a threat – and the game will feature “zero gravity space sections, dark corridors, and all the other things that made the series what it is.”
There are a bunch of new enemies revealed, including a huge 30 story tall centipede necromorph called the ‘Nexus’. Universal ammo-pickup mechanic is in, too.

Yeah, I hope the co-op doesn't ruin it. Carver looks like a total badass, but an action oriented dead space isn't really what DS is about. The cover mechanic obviously means there's more shooting vs humans than is necessary, as cover is virtually useless against the necros.
I was worried that it would be like RE5, and Carver would be there with you all the time -- with-or-without a human companion controlling him.
I'm glad they confirmed, at E3, that this is not the case. Carver will only be by your side in co-op.
Definitely will be fun to experience the differences between the solo-campaign and the co-op mode in different play-throughs.
I liked the original Dead Space the most, and was a bit dissappointed with the second installment to the series. Now, considering the third game will have even more action than before, I'll have to pass on this one. It's too bad they have chosen to take this route with the series.
EA announced yesterday at Gamescom that Dead Space 3 will be released on February 5th, 2013. However, that wasn’t the only news to come out about the game, as EA also gave us some detail on some of the games first bits of DLC.
If you pre-order the game you’ll get the Limited Edition of the game, which comes with 2 DLC releases as bonuses. The DLCs are titled First Contact and Witness the Truth, and both bring with it new suits and weapons. Needless to say, while the new suits and weapons aren’t necessary by any means, they’ll likely be a much welcome addition to anybody’s arsenal.
The First Contact bundle comes with the First Contact suit, an Extra-Vehicular Activity suit (aka space suit) that has a “flamboyant golden finish” and extra thick armor for “…unspecified reason.” But what good is a suit without a weapon? First Contact also comes with the Negotiator weapon, which contains a “top-mounted Tesla Beam” that’s capable of destroying anything mansized with a single shot. The Negotiator also has a Linegun attached to the bottom which seems to be more for shooting targets from a long distance away.
The Witness the Truth bundle comes with the Witness suit, an insulated suit that’s meant for deep digs meant to “exhume the darkest secrets of Tau Volantis”. Whenever the people who were wearing the suits emerged from the dig weeks later, they were apparently “covered in head to toe in strange graffiti and claimed to be ‘Witnesses to the Truth’”. The Evangelizer weapon is a modified AL-2 weapon that features a souped up assault rifle with a tactical shotgun on the bottom. The weapon is also adorned with various symbols, and was dubbed the “Evangelizer” by the survivors.
