According to IGN, Dead Space 3 will feature an online co-op mode.
Going live with the rumoured details, the website claims the game will feature a complete drop-in/drop-out co-op mode that will see two characters on screen at once. There’s also rumours of sharing ammo, healing and more. Here’s what the latest word is:
The cooperative mode mirrors the single-player campaign, but Isaac’s story changes to accommodate it. At one point in Dead Space 3, Isaac and his counterpart stumble, wounded, bloody, and missing chunks of armor, out of burnt wreckage together. In single-player, the same scene happens without the other character. While Isaac may have a psychological breakdown and experience hallucinations on his own, certain traumatic events don’t occur with someone by his side. Players will also work together to interact with pieces of the environment. In addition, you’ll be able to share ammo with and heal your co-op partner, although there is no revive system — once someone’s down and dead, both players reload the last checkpoint.
Considering the latest string of EA titles all supporting cop-op, this wouldn’t be a surprise at all.
The rumoured details also confirm the game will be set on a snowy-esque environment.
