Dead Space PS5 PlayStation

The imminent remake of the original and very excellent Dead Space launches later this week, on 27th January, and fanatical Unitoligists and other fans are no-doubt champing at the bit to start severing some limbs. Good news, then, as we now know when pre-loading this graphical powerhouse can begin; you can prepare for convergence on 25th January at 8 am PT / 4 pm GMT.

In addition, the recently revealed Trophy list has shed some light on a somewhat unexpected addition, the existence of an alternate ending. We won't spoil the ending of the original game here (except to note that it should be illegal to end a game with a jump scare), but its inclusion is quite fascinating. Could we see a divergence from the established order of things and a revitalised remake trilogy, one that retcons out the travesty that is Dead Space 3? Probably not, but one can dream, can't one?
