EA showed off the first taste of Dead Space 3 with a small handful of screenshots at E3 in Los Angeles. Details are still a little bit thin, but we do know a few things. First of all, Dead Space 3 will feature drop-in/drop-out co-op thoughout the game, with the help of main character Isaac’s new partner, Sergeant John Carver. Isaac and Carver will be exploring the necromorph infested ice planet of Tau Volantis, battling new necros, giant bosses, and even human zealots. The planet of Tau Volantis will feature both the traditional, close-space environments that the Dead Space franchise has used so effectively in the past, as well as new open expanses for player exploration.
Dead Space 3 is slated to hit the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in February 2013.
