Dead Space 2 Online Multiplayer Confirmed
Word leaked via a job listing last year and a blurb in Game Informer magazine that some form of multiplayer mode could be coming to Dead Space 2, and now EAs John Riccitiello has pretty much sealed the deal. The EA CEO dropped a few morsels of info about the Dead Space sequel during an interview with Industry Gamers, including a brief confirmation of online multiplayer support.
"...Dead Space 2 is more than a worthy sequel; its going to be a monster. So Im really, really pleased with that," Riccitiello gushed, continuing, "Its got some really innovative online gameplay."
Granted, thats not a whole lot of info other than the online stuff being "really innovative," but a confirmations a confirmation, right? Riccitiello went on to explain a little bit more about why he thinks Dead Space 2 is the bees knees.
"It seems like everyones been Duke Nukem since the beginning of time, you know? Give me a bigger gun and Ill march my way through," the EA executive added. "What Dead Space does is its a thinking mans game in addition to being a great action adventure title... I love that to conquer this game you have to use your brain."
