Rumour: Dead Space 3 to feature co-op, plenty more details revealed
Dead Space 3 is inevitable and according to IGN’s sources the game is supposed to feature a co-op mechanic as well. And it will be drop-in, drop-out co-op, so no need to wait in the lobby for players to fill up.
If you have played the multiplayer in Dead Space 2, then you will know that lobby usually never gets filled. The game is set in a snowy planet named as Tau Volantis and if you choose to co-op, you will get access to a new character who can act as Isaac’s guide.
Here’s what they wrote about the weapons: “Alternate-fire in Dead Space 3 functions much differently than before, possibly because the workbench, where players previously upgraded weapon power, reload speed, and capacity, has changed. The Plasma Cutter, whose default horizontal shot changed to vertical, is an entirely different weapon now.
“Its alt-fire mode now has a similar knockback effect to the Force Gun. The Pulse Rifle features the saw-blades as a secondary firing mode. It’s possible this is the default loadout for the weapon, but it could also point to customization weapon combinations within the new workbench.”
