After laying dormant for a decade horror franchise Dead Space is back. The remaster of Dead Space gives players a chance to return right back to the start of the Dead Space story as Isaac, a previously normal engineer, lands aboard the USG Ishimura unaware of the horror that he's about to face. While it's a remaster there are also a variety of other subtle changes to the game that fans of the original will want to check out including new puzzles and characterizations, not to mention the updated look. In this Dead Space Guide Hub, we'll go over each of the levels of the game and what you will be able to find within, as well as give some tips on completing certain side quests.

Dead Space FAQ

How long does it take to beat Dead Space?

While the number of levels are the same there are a few subtle changes such as new puzzles appearing, or more verbose dialogue between the characters. It's likely that the game would still take you about 12-15 hours to complete. With the addition of side-quests and more free movement to return to previous areas in the game the more you get completed the more time you'll find that you're taking.
