Dead Space 2, the long-awaited sequel to Electronic Arts' hit survival horror title, is due to hit retailers in just two weeks. To make sure that the hype reaches a fever pitch, the company has released the official launch trailer for the title. Looks good.
The most noticeable thing in the new clip is just how much face time Isaac gets in this installment. The character was a mute hidden behind the mask of his spacesuit in the first Dead Space, but that's changed dramatically in the follow up. This new clip shows Isaac running around without his helmet, and speaking regularly. We knew this was coming from earlier clips, but it still feels kinda shocking. I get the vibe that Isaac is going to be a radically different character this time around—and it makes me a little nervous.
