The Dead Space remake launches in just a few days and it will not be available on Xbox Game Pass from day one although there are still some EA Play benefits that come with an Ultimate subscription.

Dead Space is one of the most beloved survival horror games of all time, and fans are incredibly excited to relive the terror of boarding the USG Ishimura. Although it doesn’t release for another few days, the first two hours have already leaked online and the game looks absolutely incredible.

The original trilogy is always available to play at any time, but soon we will all be able to experience a full remake of the first instalment.

Although it is not coming to Xbox Game Pass this week, it should join Standard EA Play sometime in the future. In which case, you will be able to enjoy the remake at no extra cost with a GP Ultimate subscription.

If you have an Ultimate subscription, you can play the original trilogy at no extra cost through GP right now.
