The Dead Space 3 packshots have been revealed for those wondering what to look for on retail shelves early next year. The third entry in the series takes players to a new “hostile environment” with “drop-in/drop-out co-op”, along with “exhilarating action”, and promises to “re-set the bar for epic thrills in 2013.” We shall be the judge of that next February, thank-you-very-much.
