EA is developing a new Dead Space game, a fact that should surpirse anyone, given the success of the first 3 games in series. However, the new details uncovered on Siliconera about Dead Space 3, will surprise fans of the sci-fi/horror series. It appears that this time Isaac Clarke won’t be fighting the horrible aliens, known as the Necromorphs, on a spaceship or a space-station, but on the surface of a frozen planet named Tau Volantis.

As the game starts, Isaac crash-lands on the planet, and makes his way to the a nearby waystation, where he finds shelter from the harsh weather. Inside the station he discovers that he is not a lone; a fellow survivor, deathly injured, tells him that the rest of the survivors from the crash moved on to a different facility, and the Ellie Langford (a key character in Dead Space 2) is with them. Issac quickly dons on a snowsuit and hurries after her. The report also mentions a new type of enemy, called “The Hive Mind”.

It is best to consider all of the above mentioned information should be taken with a grain of salt, since EA haven’t even officially announced Dead Space 3 yet. The source credited with this leak is the same one that uncovered the first (and accurate) details about EA’s Syndicate, so there is a chance he knows what he is talking about.
