Equippable Suit Visuals

Players had voiced their request to be able to equip previous suit visuals since Dead Space’s launch. Such features make sense in any game that has multiple suits or armor. As of Patch 1.005, players will be able to equip suit visuals that were previously acquired via the Storage.

They further clarified that changing the cosmetic aspect of a suit will not impact the upgrades players have acquired. Several fans have expressed their thanks to the developers for adding the feature and engaging in discourse over their choices in the subreddit.

Now that we can finally have access to all our suits. Thank you Motive you guys are the goat imp. What suit are you ecstatic to be rocking once again? Level 5 for me. from DeadSpace

General Fixes & Adjustments

Besides the addition of a much-requested feature, the patch has also ironed out some of the game’s issues. The update serves to improve Dead Space’s performance on the Steam Deck. Considering the value of the handheld device, these improvements are sure to enhance the player’s overall experience.

Furthermore, the door leading to the security station will operate properly as of this patch. The patch notes read, “If upon loading a save the door is still on standby, take the tram to another station and back, wait for 30 seconds and the door will unlock.”

Another issue this update resolves is Dr. Kyne not spawning inside the office of Chief Steward. As stated in the patch notes, ” It will be fixed if the current objective is scrambled with unitologist symbols. Go back to the Cantina, then come back to the Hunter fight room. This should trigger the proper quest flow. Then follow the quest markers until you reach Kyne’s sequence.”

As of patch 1.005, the game will now recognize the Crew Quarters key card before reaching Chapter 10 in the story. They elaborate on this stating, “If you’re loading a save where you were already in this state and the game doesn’t update, travel away from the area (60 seconds approx.) and return, the game should then update.”
