EA has announced the date of its next stream of developer diaries for Dead Space Remake called “Crafting the Tension”. It will premiere later this week, May 12 at 10 a.m. Pacific Time / 1 p.m. Eastern Time on various EA official video channels, including YouTube and Twitch.
As part of EA’s ongoing deep dives behind the scenes into the development of the Dead Space remake, the company has hosted a variety of livestreams focusing on a particular aspect of the survival horror title. Past videos have focused on sound design and physics, but the upcoming video will highlight art.
According to EA, the developer’s next livestream “will offer a deep dive into various aspects of the upcoming game’s artistic design. The Motive team will show an early video of how they use the Frostbite engine, Gen 5 hardware and computers for visual development , VFX, lightning and more than foundation to create a new level of immersion and quality for today’s modern audience. “
EA Motive relies particularly heavily on next-generation features related to realism. For example, the sound is such that Isaac will sound and speak differently depending on how much damage he has done. EA Motive seems to take mechanical dissection from the game series to a whole new level.
