As a series, Dead Space has been dormant since the third game was released back in 2013. After a very long hiatus, Dead Space is finally back in the form of a remake of the original game from 2008. While all the main story points are the same as they were in the original Dead Space, players will come across many changes that help make this game feel like a new experience for both new and old players alike.
While many quality of life changes have been made to enhance the game, Dead Space still features all the strategic dismemberment of Necromorphs that made the original game stand out among the crowd. This complete guide and walkthrough will help players overcome the Necromorph outbreak onboard the USG Ishimura.
This guide is a work in progress and will continue to be updated over the coming days and weeks.
Getting Started in Dead Space
While the remake of this classic survival horror game will feel very familiar to those who played the original, all sorts of new options have been added to the game to bring it up to modern standards. There are new many different accessibility settings, including color-blind options and the ability to have QTEs either auto-complete or just require a single button push to complete them.
Beyond accessibility, difficulty settings in Dead Space have been significantly adjusted and Impossible has gotten a major rework from the original version. This section will help cover any questions players may have before starting the game.
Main Story & Side Quest Walkthroughs
Just like with the original game, the remake tells the story of how Isaac Clarke first encountered Necromorphs. Isaac is part of the emergency maintenance team sent by Concordance Extraction Corporation (CEC for short) to investigate a distress call from the USG Ishimura, a massive ship used for breaking up dead planets for resources.
What starts as a normal emergency repair job turns into a horrific nightmare. The emergency repair crew is attacked by terrifying monsters known as the Necromorphs, and they end up trapped on the ship with no means of escape. While trying to stay alive, Isaac is also looking for his girlfriend who was stationed aboard the Ishimura. This section of the guide will cover the entire main story from start to finish along with the brand new side quests.

Items, Upgrades, Schematics, Collectibles, and Achievements/Trophies
In order to survive the Necromorph outbreak, Dead Space players will need to get creative. Fortunately, the USG Ishimura has no shortage of dangerous work tools that could be turned into weapons to use against the Necromorphs. While a tool like the Plasma Cutter isn't technically a weapon, it is highly effective when it comes to dismembering a Necromorph.
Scattered across the Ishimura are all sorts of resources like ammo, tools, health packs, schematics for the store, and valuable resources that can be sold for credits. This section of the guide will help players find the tools and resources they need to succeed.
