The stream will air this evening (August 31) at 6PM BST (10AM PT / 1PM ET), and fans will be able to watch the stream on the official Twitch channel for Motive Studio when it goes live.
While details are brief, this developer livestream will give fans “a very early look at the development of Dead Space“, which will be a complete next-gen remake of the original Dead Space game.

As well as a next-gen graphical rebuild, Dead Space will “do away” with dated ideas from the original, with Art Director Mike Yazijian stating that while the team is “following the story, the art direction, everything, out of respect for the original game,” the remake will “do away with some things that don’t work and make sure the game stays relevant to modern audiences – but even that has to be done surgically”.
Following the remake announcement back in July, Glen Schofield – the creator of the original Dead Space – shared that “Directing the original Dead Space was one of the highlights of my career” and that he is “excited to see what the EA [Motive] team does with it!”.
