Dead Space 3 is set on Tau Volantis, an icy planet where Isaac Clarke has to wade through white-out blizzard conditions; that’s the latest rumour going around regarding the game.
According to Siliconera, which sites a mole from within EA, the story of the next game in the series, sees Isaac crash lands on the planet, in which he believes he may be the only survivor. Later in the game he makes his way to an abandoned waystation, finds out there are other survivors on the planet and heads off to find them.
Later in the game, Isaac reunites with Ellie and a new character named Jennifer and the trio set off together.
Sounds interesting and could perhaps even hint at some sort of co-op play?
This is a rumour for now though, as let’s remember, Dead Space 3 hasn’t even been announced yet.
