Dead Space was always going to go 'epic', says original writer

Release Date: 11/02/2013

Dead Space 3 introduces more action, weapon crafting, co-operative gameplay and open exterior locations on the ice planet Tau Volantis, but according to Antony Johnston, writer of the first game, the Dead Space series was never intended to remain as a pure horror experience.

Speaking with NowGamer, Johnston explained that striking a balance between accessible action for more players and gruelling horror was always tricky task. "It's a very difficult balancing act to pull off," he said. "So far, I think Visceral has done an admirable job of maintaining that balance."

Johnston wrote the script for the first game, and provided a story outline for both Dead Space 2 and Dead Space 3. He went on to pen various Dead Space comics and graphic novels, and also scripted Ubisoft's ZombiU.

"I know the developers always wanted to go bigger, in terms of scope", he added. "The universe we created was huge, with lots of elements, which simply didn't make it into the first game. So to get that story told, to round out the universe, it was inevitable the settings and environments would open out a bit, become a bit more epic in scale...otherwise you'd just have the same game on a different ship each time, and that's pretty dull."

Dead Space 3 is out now for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. It is, by all accounts, the biggest and most varied entry in EA's sci-fi bloodbath saga with an average play time of 16 hours, not counting optional co-op sections.
