Dead Space Remake revitalizes much of the experience fans know and love, but it keeps some of the people’s favorite aspects of the original as well. The biggest example of this is the iconic dismemberment mechanic, which would frankly be a crime to be missing from the base game. Difficulty modes are naturally a question a lot have as well, especially some of the more difficult ones. Here’s whether there is an Impossible Mode in Dead Space Remake.

Does Impossible Mode Return in Dead Space Remake?

Thankfully, it does! Looking through the game’s extensive list of trophies, we can see the achievement Untouchable, which asks you to complete the game in Impossible mode. It’s good that the developers at EA Motive chose to keep this mode in the game, as its omission would’ve likely upset a lot of people. It’s also a great mode for those who crave an extreme challenge.

Impossible Mode was first introduced in the original Dead Space as the most difficult form of the game and was unlocked after completing the game once on any difficulty. You start with whatever suit you used to complete the game, but the game is naturally a lot less forgiving. You’ll need to make every resource count, as supplies are incredibly tight. Necromorphs are also smarter, sporting similar health but being able to sidestep your shots. We recommend only trying this game if you believe you’re up for the challenge. Otherwise, another playthrough on perhaps a higher difficulty (unless your first playthrough was on Hard) should still prove a nice challenge.
