Dead Space 3 released back in 2013, making the upcoming Dead Space Remake the first "new" franchise entry in nearly a decade. It seems to be incredibly faithful, with the game retaining the same plot with a few gameplay improvements. Perhaps the biggest change is Dead Space Remake's Isaac being fully voiced as he was in the original sequel and threequel, and while it remains to be seen how that is received, that hasn't stopped the hype train from going ahead full steam. It's not the first release of the new year, but it's high on the list of many personal anticipated lists for January.
Dead Space will release on January 27, 2023, on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
