Worried that your online experience of killing necromorphs in Dead Space 2 will be shit? Worry no more: EA CEO John Riccitello has said the horror’s online experience will be “innovative”.

“It’s got some really innovative online gameplay,” he told Industry Gamers.

He also revealed how much of a fan he is of the Visceral series.

“I’m personally a nut about Dead Space. Rare is it for me to finish a game on more than one platform, but I did in the case of Dead Space, and Dead Space 2 is more than a worthy sequel; it’s going to be a monster. So I’m really, really pleased with that.

“What Dead Space does is it’s a thinking man’s game in addition to being a great action adventure title. So, we get the action in the game, lot of shooting, really different weapons…I love the puzzles. I love that to conquer this game you have to use your brain.”

Last year, before the official announcement of the game, a job listing popped up which indicated that it would have online, a first for the series.

Never the less, it’s still awesome shit. This will be ome of EA’s big hitters next week in LA, as well as EA’s press conference. Get the skinny on that here.

Dead Space 2 releases in 2011 for PS3, 360 and PC.
