EA recently unveiled a new feature in the latest installation of their hit survival-horror game, Dead Space. In Dead Space 3, the players are given the option of creating their own weapon of mass destruction. This feature gives the players the opportunity to mix and match different functions of their favorite guns, and put them all into one. If you think that you’re just scavenging for weapons parts, and creating a gun out of that, guess again. You can actually combine pre-existing guns, and combine their functions to create a brand new gun. Who’s to say you can’t mix a Javelin Gun and a Flamethrower and create a gun that fires javelins on fire?
This feature really brings out Isaac’s ability as an Engineer. Being able to mix guns and make new ones can really be another hit point in this game. You can even share guns you’ve made in co-op, so that your partner can use the same one you have. If one doesn’t feel like creating a new gun, no worries. There are also blueprints available to create stock guns. Let’s just hope that necromorphs are still powerful and as deadly as previous games, and not become fodder for the new guns created. Dead Space 3 comes out February 8, 2013.
