January 26, 2023: Dead Space Remake is out tomorrow so we may have more information on it soon

The Dead Space remake is due out very soon. It's a faithful retelling of Isaac Clarke's journey as he boards the USG Ishimura in order to find his girlfriend Nicole, surrounded by by undead monsters. As it's being developed by EA's Motive Studio, it would only make sense to be able to play Dead Space Remake on EA Play Pro.


EA Play is a subscription-based service from EA. It offers a large library of games for you to play in return for a monthly fee. It's not the only company in the market to offer this kind of service, but it could be the only one to host the Dead Space remake.

For those of you who have access to the Deluxe content, we have a guide on how to change between all of your new suits. Finally, we have a guide on how to save Hammond in the Dead Space Remake, for all of you altruistic players out there.

The anodized suit does look kind of clean, to be fair.

There is one more incentive to play Dead Space through the EA App. For those of you who play the game through the EA Play Pro system, you will be given access to the Digital Deluxe content. This allows you to pick between three new suits and three new textures. One of these textures is only available to EA Play Pro users, so if you want to terrorise necromorphs in the Anodized Suit, you'll need to sign up.
