A New Enemy The Hive Mind
Dead Space 3 begins as Isaac Clark crash lands onto Tau Volantis, "an icy planet where Isaac Clarke has to wade through white-out blizzard conditions." Ellie and others are alive in a waystation on the planet
Dead Space 3 Co-op
Although Isaac encounters taller versions of Dead Space 2's childlike Pack Enemies or a set of legs with tentacles in place of its torso, the fleshy demons of Dead Space, Necromorphs, aren't the only enemy Isaac fights on the ice world. For the first time in the franchise, he'll fight human beings. Heavily armored soldiers pack guns and grenades to use against you. Of course, these guys become Necromorphs as well.
As he makes his way through open, icy areas, steel walls sometimes form around Isaac, and enemies attack from various angles. A spinning drill, like a lethal top, may also make its way onto the playing field, slicing players to pieces if they come in contact with the always-moving object.
One of the more spectacular encounters features Isaac shooting a spider-like creature in its orange-tinted weak spot, as well as shooting arms and protruding sacs. This big thing will eat Isaac whole if he gets too close, so he's forced to run around the arena and attack from a distance. It may also make multiple appearances -- it disappears into a cavern once it's taken enough of a beating.
Skyscraper-sized enemies may also come into play. During one scene, Isaac observes a massive worm-like beast bursting from the ice beneath a cliff.

Dead Space 3 will have drop-in, drop-out co-op. Isaac Clarke will, if players choose, fight alongside a man with a gnarly scar on his face, an engineering RIG of his own, and glowing red eyes peering from his helmet. During single-player, this character acts as Isaac’s guide.
The cooperative mode mirrors the single-player campaign, but Isaac's story changes to accommodate it. At one point in Dead Space 3, Isaac and his counterpart stumble, wounded, bloody, and missing chunks of armor, out of burnt wreckage together. In single-player, the same scene happens without the other character. While Isaac may have a psychological breakdown and experience hallucinations on his own, certain traumatic events don't occur with someone by his side.
Players will also work together (using Telekinesis, for instance) to interact with pieces of the environment. In addition, you'll be able to share ammo with and heal your co-op partner, although there is no revive system -- once someone's down and dead, both players reload the last checkpoint.
