EA announced during its EA press conference this evening drop in co-op for Dead Space 3, after a gameplay trailer was shown.
The axing of competitive multiplayer was announced over the weekend via an article features in the July issue of Game Informer.
A demo was shown, demonstrating the co-op and cover-based combat in action as Issac and John Carver fought off some of the new Necromorphs which will appear in the game. Big ones too which can suck the duo in and try and digest them. Yuck.
Games' out in February 2013. See the trailer followed by the demo below as well as some concept art.
