A graphic novel-style trailer just launched on the official Dead Space website, showing off an introduction to a new character in the series’ universe. If this isn’t a teaser for the next Dead Space, then we don’t know what to think.
As the video information notes, the footage stars Earthgov Sergeant John Carver, a soldier with an admitted anger management problem, who finds himself separated from his wife and his child when a site holding a Marker is attacked by a missile launch. Shortly after a brief power outage, the place suddenly starts swarming with Necromorphs, including a hulking behemoth not previously seen in any of the previous Dead Space titles.
From the official description:
While patrolling the planet Uxor, Earthgov Sergeant John Carver witnesses an attack on the Marker Site he guards which changes his life forever. John must now fight his way through a colony now in complete chaos as he begins to discover how important he is in fighting the Necromorph plague. This is just the start of John Carver’s saga in the Dead Space Universe.
There’s a countdown clock at the top of the website, and we sincerely hope it’s counting down to a video game release. At least, that would make the most sense.
