Everything mankind has endured has been leading us toward one final conclusion: a new third-person shooter from EA.

I’m not sure how I feel about this whole “rebirth” thing. From where I sit it looks an awful lot like being eviscerated and eaten. I do kind of like the “wing it” attitude on display in the new Dead Space 3 trailer, though; after all, when you’re descending into a lair of horrific, ravenous mutant zombies, who’s got time to waste on coming up with a plan?

But he Marker has a plan, and it’s your job to put the brakes on those shenanigans before things get out of hand. Oh, and to rescue Ellie Langford, who you may recall as Isaac Clarke’s cyclopean girlfriend from Dead Space 2, and who now seems to be an agent of some sort, leading a team of some sort, and needs to be rescued by Clarke in a turn of events more than a little reminiscent of those in Dead Space 1. Ol’ Isaac sure does have a way with the ladies.

I’ll be honest, I haven’t really been paying much attention to Dead Space 3 and this, despite being a “story trailer,” doesn’t do much to fill in the gaps. But it looks like guys will be shot, stomped, gutted, tossed around and suffer the bitter, aching sting of love lost to wicked circumstance. Hey, that’s good enough for me!

Dead Space 3 comes out on February 5 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
