Co-op was added to Dead Space 3 late in production
During his GDC keynote, Dead Space 3 producer Chuck Beaver revealed that co-op was added to the game relatively late during production.
"I had to go from single-player to co-op, in the middle of production. How about that?," he said.
"In the end, co-op mode ends up mirroring the single-player experience: slick, entertaining, with the occasional moment of brilliance, marred by a lack of tension, pacing and pant-filling scares," he concluded.
