So you say you have washed all of your soiled shorts and are ready for the next installment of Dead Space, eh? You have ventured forth through the Ishimura and the Sprawl and have lanced limbs from countless necromorphs. You are raring to go. Visceral Games now has what it is calling a “graphic novel short” video on the main Dead Space page, but it might not focus on who you think.

There are some naughty words and bloody things in this video, so watch out!


If you cannot view the video, here is the synopsis of what’s going on:

While patrolling the planet Uxor, Earthgov Sergeant John Carver witnesses an attack on the Marker Site he guards which changes his life forever. John must now fight his way through a colony now in complete chaos as he begins to discover how important he is in fighting the Necromorph plague.

This is just the start of John Carver’s saga in the Dead Space Universe.

So John Carver joins the cast of surviving, space-zombie-killing heroes in the Dead Space universe. Let’s hope he is as cool as Isaac Clark. At the very least, we now have a pretty solid prediction on who your friend will play during Co op.

Along with this recent video, the main site has a countdown in some language that makes no sense to anyone (although it would be surprising if someone doesn’t decode it in the next few hours). No more information exists for the countdown. Is it for the release of the next video? The release date of the game? Who knows! As of this sentence, the current countdown time is…”T”…”V”…”d.” Get on that, super gumshoes.
