Definitely, what most caught the attention of today’s EA Play Live was the revelation of the much-rumored return of Dead Space. The developer EA Motive excited fans a lot and, although it has already been confirmed that it will be a remake and not a reboot, there will also be improvements in the narrative, which has raised doubts among fans about what modifications will be made to the experience. EA Motive has just clarified how it plans to make some changes to the remake in terms of narrative.
In a previous note we explained that the new installment of Dead Space It will be primarily a remake, but a definition that also fits this project is that of a reinvention, as it will include “story, characters, improved gameplay mechanics and more”, albeit based on the base story of the original game and the full series.
The above was not very clear how it would affect the fidelity of the game and the events that occur throughout the story, but EA Motive has already shared more details about how this horror game will revive in a series of interviews.

Dead Space will be better integrated into the history of the series
The remake of Dead Space It will be very ambitious and that will be reflected in the story, as EA Motive reported that it will seek to offer a better narrative experience and to achieve this it will use ways to integrate narrative touch points from later installments naturally throughout the series, now that it has the possibility see the series in retrospect, something that was obviously not possible before, since the story was not finished, but was in development alongside the games.
Thus, it will be possible to develop the narrative of the game taking advantage of the fact that they already know the successive events and thus improve the narrative. Despite this creative freedom, it does not mean that the story of the original game will be altered.
“For us, the basis is the story of Dead Space. So by default that’s what canon is. But then there are some improvements because those things weren’t really working at the source, the improvements because of what came next, and we thought, ‘Oh, it’s interesting if we could reference that, or if we could link to that,’ ” Roman Campos-Oriola, creative director of the project, commented in an interview with IGN.
