The new Dead Space 2023 Remake will by all accounts have much more content to offer than the original, including new puzzles, side quests, bosses, and storylines. But will it have new game plus? We’ll tell you all you need to know on this page.
New Game Plus in Dead Space 2023 Remake
As of January 25th, the Dead Space Twitter account has confirmed that the 2023 remake will indeed feature New Game Plus. The details are scarce, but it will at least feature the following:
- Level 6 Advanced Suit
- New Phantom Variant Necromorphs
- A Secret Ending
The Advanced Suit and a Secret Ending
It remains to be seen whether the Level 6 Advanced Suit will be purely cosmetic, or whether it will also improve your stats and / or change other aspects of combat. Although not confirmed, you will almost certainly carry over your gear and advancements from a normal playthrough, as is the case with most New Game+ Modes. You can also expect a few changes in terms of mob difficulty, or you may want to increase the difficulty to Impossible now that you’re better prepared, since you’ll need to do that anyway to unlock the Untouchable achievement. If that’s not your thing, you can still unlock the Trusted Contractor achievement by completing the game on any difficulty setting in New Game Plus.
In terms of the secret ending, we’ll have to wait and see if that wraps up the story in a different way for the remake, or - dare we hope - that it hints at the franchise expanding even more from here on!
