Visceral Games has revealed that players can expect to eek-out close to 100 hours of gameplay from Dead Space 3, and that’s not just through the addition of co-op.
In an interview with AusGamers, Dead Space 3 associate producer, Yara Khoury explained that the game’s new weapon crafting system significantly bolsters play time when combined with the game’s other features. “I think Dead Space 3 is a little bit different because we have a little bit more depth in gameplay, and also in the environments. So we have the beta-path, which are additional, and total optional levels to explore, which is great if you want to scavenge for great resources,” he explained.
“So this totally ties back into the weapon-crafting feature,” Khoury continued, “and the resource management, where you have to explore the world to find the best resources that get you the best parts, and the most badass weapons that you can make. So this all ties in together, into that focus in our investment into making more options for our players to explore.”
When asked about the length of the game Khoury replied, “If you are into weapon crafting, you can spend literally one hundred hours in this thing. If you want to explore all the beta-paths; if you want to replay with the co-op; it’s way more about choice in Dead Space 3: you can really spend a lot of time doing that.”
“So I would say it’s a deeper game, that has more gameplay depth, and I think our players are going to find a lot of replayability value; more than in Dead Space and in Dead Space 2, actually,” he added.
