A graphic novel short for Dead Space has been released, which discusses in video form Earthgov Sergeant John Carver’s patrol through the planet Uxor. During this time he witnesses an attack on the Marker Site he was guarding, and now he must fight his way through a colony in complete chaos. According to the video description, this is also when John discovers “how important he is in fighting the Necromorph plague.” Apparently, this is also “just the start of John Carver’s saga in the Dead Space Universe.” It’s rumored that the next Dead Space game will feature drop-in co-op, so maybe this is a foreshadowing of the story to come. Then again, maybe it’s just a novel. Hopefully EA will be more forthcoming regarding details of the game at its E3 briefing next week.
