Dead Space 3 to offer Kinect voice commands in co-op play

Remember at the end of the Avengers movie, when it looks like Iron Man is dead until Hulk shouts him back to life? Well, it sounds like you'll be able to do something similar when Dead Space 3 creeps onto Xbox 360 next year.

The sci-fi horror game, which introduces co-operative play for the first time in the series, will open up new areas and side missions if you play with a friend. Using Kinect, you'll be able to use your voice to give items to your companion, locate objectives together as well as bring your pal back from the brink if they get taken out. Players will be able to join and leave the game without interrupting the flow.

"The voice commands in Dead Space 3 give players a unique way to take down the terror, whether they choose to face the Necromorphs alone in single-player, or alongside a friend with drop-in / drop-out co-op," said Steve Papoutsis, vice president of developer Visceral Games.

Dead Space 3 swaps the gloomy spaceships of the first two games for the frozen planet of Tau Volantis. It'll be published by EA for Xbox 360, as well as PlayStation 3 and PC, on February 8th.
