EA job post points to Dead Space 2 multiplayer

Dead Space Marine gettin munched on.A recent job posting from EA suggests we might get a little multiplayer action in Dead Space 2. If you’ve not played through the original game, you should, if only to see how truly terrifying a game can be. As far as multiplayer goes, though, I’m not real sure what that would look like. So much of the original game is devoted to removing body parts that a multiplayer experience sounds more like a drunken Alien vs. Predator match to me.

Here’s the interesting content from the post:

This M-rated action/shooter sequel will set new standards for an action-packed story-driven console experience. Our team values are as follows: Gameplay comes first, controller feel is everything, culture of creativity, be highly iterative, playtest early and often, learn from failure, work fast and smart, and surround ourselves with the best talent in the world.

The previous installment in the Dead Space franchise received numerous awards for gameplay, visuals, and sound design, and the same core team is in place to create an even better follow up.

If you’ll remember, Dead Space had insanely high used sales compared to new sales, which usually means players don’t see a lot of replay value to the game. Multiplayer support would probably help, but only if done right, and really, I’m having trouble dreaming that up.
