As promised, EA Motive held one on the evening of May 12th Broadcast Crafting the Tensionin which she spoke about the artistic component of the Dead Space remake and revealed the exact release date of the game.

As for the stream itself, the developers (see playlists above) talked about how they’re recreating the art, character models, lighting, and visuals for current-gen platforms.
Towards the end of the show (see video below), the writers staged a small demonstration of the remake’s “pre-alpha”. In the leaked clip, the protagonist starts the engine in the engineering department of the Ishimura spacecraft.
According to the Dead Space storyline, the Ishimura’s entire crew was killed and infected with alien filth. Engineer Isaac Clark, who has arrived on the ship, must find out what happened and fight back enemy creatures.
Dead Space Remake is built from the ground up using the Frostbite engine. The developers promise “Demonstrate a unique level of visualization and enhance gameplay while retaining the spirit of the original.”.
