EA confirms Dead Space has a secret ending and New Game Plus
The remake will be released on Friday
Electronic Arts has confirmed that its upcoming Dead Space remake has a secret ending and includes a New Game Plus mode.
The official Dead Space Twitter account said New Game Plus will be available at launch and includes a Level 6 Advanced Suit, new Phantom Variant Necromorphs, and a secret ending.
The inclusion of an alternative ending was recently revealed when the game’s trophy list was published by Exophase.

The title of the trophy in question could be considered a spoiler so we won’t name it here, but its description reads: “See the alternative ending on any difficulty mode.”
The original Dead Space only had one ending, so the trophy essentially confirmed that the remake has at least some extra story content not previously seen.
It also includes a number of features which originally appeared in the game’s sequels, such as protagonist Isaac Clarke having a voice and updated zero-g.
The remake, which has been rebuilt with EA’s Frostbite engine by Star Wars Squadrons studio Motive, is officially set for release this Friday for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC, but some US retailers are reportedly selling the game early.
Players who pre-order the game via Steam, including those who have already done so, will get Dead Space 2 at no additional charge upon release.
