Console players will have two graphics modes to choose from.

The horror genre has recently been reinvigorated with the release of innovative titles like The Callisto Protocol, and a prominent entry is on its way to completely dominate the competition. The upcoming Dead Space Remake will amalgamate gut-wrenching horror elements with thriller to deliver an unforgettable gruesome experience.

The Dead Space Remake is the anticipated remake of the original 2008 horror classic, and developers have just shed more details on the project. The Dead Space Twitter handle has recently revealed the minimum and recommended specs for the PC version alongside details like the graphics modes for the console port.

Major Takeaway

  • The Dead Space Remake will feature two different graphics modes for the console port. The revealed modes include a Quality and Performance mode.
  • The Quality mode will feature a stunning 4K UHD resolution alongside ray-tracing technology. However, it will lock the FPS down to 30. The Performance mode will provide 60 FPS at the cost of no ray tracing and 2K QHD resolution.
  • The minimum PC specs require a Ryzen 5 2600x or Core i5 8600 CPU, and an AMD RX 5700 or GTX 1070 GPU. The recommended requirements will need at least the Ryzen 5 5600x or Core i5 11600K processor, with a GPU demanding Radeaon RX 6700 XT or Geforce RTX 2070 graphics card.
  • The anticipated Dead Space Remake is planned to be released on January 27th, 2023 for next-gen platforms and PC only. The title is not arriving on the PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

Like most major AAA next-gen entries, the Dead Space Remake will incorporate two graphical modes for the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series family to satiate the expectations of all types of players.

The two graphical modes include a Quality mode, which will deliver 4K Ultra High Definition resolution at the expense of sacrificing FPS and will also amalgamate ray tracing. The quality mode will lock at 30 FPS to ensure a high-quality 4K experience. 

The second Performance Mode will sacrifice visual fidelity by lowering it down to 2K Quad High Definition to provide 60 FPS without any ray tracing elements.

The Dead Space team also elaborated on the PC specifications for the upcoming remake. The minimum requirements ask the players to utilize a Ryzen 5 2600x or Core i5 8600 processor, and an AMD RX 5700 or GTX 1070 GPU.

On the other hand, the recommended specs advise players to use at least the Ryzen 5 5600x or Core i5 11600K, with a GPU requiring Radeaon RX 6700 XT or Geforce RTX 2070 graphics card at least. Furthermore, the game requires an overall storage of 50GB in both the discussed thresholds. Take a look at the detailed specs below.

The alluring Dead Space Remake is slated to arrive on January 27th, 2023, on the next-gen platforms and PC. We will be able to play the game on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Series S, and PC. Unfortunately, it leaves out the last-gen consoles and the Nintendo Switch to ensure a well-refined next-gen experience.
