Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Visceral Games also introduces some new additions and abilities to Dead Space 3 such as rolling and dodging to cover to avoid attacks. Visceral Games said that they felt absolutely silly for leaving this new feature out of many games. Visceral Games also said that they would make Isaac more responsive to commands such as moving left and right and shooting at enemies. They have also improved on the horror plot; not such as "something slowly moving towards you during a cutscene and you can't do anything.", but more like terrible decisions that are made throughout the game. Finally, Visceral Games has also improved on the cover system saying that the characters will take cover based on the given situation throughout the game and not a highlighted subtitle saying: "Press E to Take Cover"
