A graphic novel short just released by EA basically confirms that Dead Space 3 will be seen at this years E3. The video showcases a character in a rig, very similar to Issac’s, with a scar running down the side of his face as well as glowing red eyes from his helmet. The significance of these things is that the rumors that were floating around about Dead Space 3, specifically said that this man would be Issac’s co-op partner in Dead Space 3. The man’s name is John Carver and according to the description of the video, “this is just the start of John Carver’s saga in the Dead Space Universe.”
At the beginning of the video, you’ll also notice the planet that was rumored. The rumor stated that the game would be taking place on a frozen planet with more open environments than the previous games allowed. As you can see from the featured picture above, Carver is definitely on such a frozen planet. Of even more significance is the fact that he is guarding a huge marker right smack dab in the middle of the colony. A ship comes crashing into it, causing the Marker to activate and thus the infestation begins.
Although we have no official confirmation that Dead Space 3 will be appearing at E3 2012, I think it’s very plausible to assume that it will. If the game is using the Frostbite 2.0 engine, and if rumors are to be believed, then I think fans have a lot to look forward to with Dead Space 3. Lets just hope that if the game does have Co-op this time around, that it doesn’t impede on the single player experience. You can watch the graphic novel short for yourself below. Let us know if you notice anything that we may not have.
