The remake will also offer interesting new content for connoisseurs.

On January 27th we will finally find out whether developer Motive Studios will not only present us the first horror highlight of the new year with the remake of Dead Space, but also whether the new edition will pick up fans and newcomers alike.

One thing is clear: the 14-year-old original has aged damn well, especially on PC for my taste. In order for the action game, which I have finished several times, to still surprise me on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, it also needs a certain fresh coat of paint in the form of new content. I’m all the happier that a look at the trophy list reveals exactly what I wanted so much – namely an alternative ending to Issac’s story.

Alternate ending could be a blessing

The feature has not yet been officially communicated by Motive, but the True Trophies site published the complete list of trophies a few days before the remake was released. In addition to many well-known achievements, the achievement “reunion” again:

See the alternate ending on any of the difficulty levels“. So we not only know that Motive also dared to end the story, but also that we don’t have to worry about choosing the level of difficulty.

The right decision: When it comes to the question of how far a remake can deviate from the original, opinions differ, as is well known. While one side rejects any substantive interventions apart from a modern look and slight Quality of Life adjustments, the other side wishes for more courage with the innovations. For me, it always depends a lot on the way fresh content is implemented. If the charm and the uniqueness of the originals remain, as was the case recently with the remakes of Spyro the Dragon or Demon’s Souls, incentives can also be created for fans to play again.

Since Motive didn’t simply rewrite the great ending, but only offers an alternative that I can look forward to, such an innovation is a fantastic thing from my point of view. One that increases my anticipation for the remake even further.

Not the only change in content

Getting an alternate ending also fits in very well with the way the developers approached the remake. Visually, it appears that there have been major improvements, with many smaller but important decisions, such as the sounds, the feedback from the fans was listened to, the basic structure was largely retained, but the added value for connoisseurs of the original was thought of.

So we get to hear Isaac’s voice for the first time, playful incentives through new weapon upgrades, new rooms including side missions towards the end of the game and, as is now known, an alternative ending. If the technical implementation on PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC is now successful, the Dead Space Remake will be one of the highlights of the year for newcomers and fans alike, anything else would surprise me.
