Dead Space 2 teaser image holds a hidden hint

We generally refrain from writing news stories about announcements… BUT THIS ONE HAS A PICTSHURE! Something contained in the image below relates specifically to an announcement Dead Space 2 will drop later this week. Can you see it? Because we sure as hell can’t.

Above: From Dead Space's Facebook page. The pic is also available as a desktop wallpaper.

Let’s go over the popular speculation. Yes, Isaac has a Plasma Cutter in his left hand, however there’s nothing in his right so it’s probably not dual wielding. (How the hell would that work anyway?) Those proficient in Unitology text probably just want us shut up and tell you that the scrawl in the upper right translates to “Ignition.” Okay, there… but what the hell does that mean? Sub-Zero Gravity Boots, perhaps?

Above: Our extremely cynical depiction of Dead Space 2's multiplayer

More than likely that, or something else in the image, has something to do with Dead Space 2’s multiplayer, which we’ve heard very little about thus far. Yes, even though we included it in our Top 7 Upcoming games that don't need multiplayer feature, we still condier Dead Space to be in the Top 5 franchises of this generation. Just because we didn't ask for it, doesn't mean it won't be awesome. Stay tuned, there's not much time left in the week, so the announcement should be coming very soon.

    If there' s really gonna be some multiplayer, i'd be so happy to try turning my 'buddy' into wonderful little pieces...i hope the disc blade launcher ( is that right? ) is still there. >D But yeah, multiplayer action AFTER, seat-jumping scary singleplayer.

    wait there's a guy in there!
  • BLandGoRe - July 8, 2010 5:03 a.m.

    um there's a sign where the 3 creature hold into ,and the glass is reminding something but what?
  • reaperman22 - July 8, 2010 12:51 a.m. sorry for double post but here is an article on it
  • reaperman22 - July 8, 2010 12:49 a.m.

    the symbols being hugged by the 3 monsters and inscription on the left of issacs hand
  • Krassinator - July 7, 2010 10:02 p.m.

    Well thats something at least, Maybe pyrokenisis? That would be pretty sweet...
  • TheNoodles - July 7, 2010 9:57 p.m.

    The writing is translated to IGNITION. If that's the hint you're referring to then there you go.
  • Strangleme - July 7, 2010 9:57 p.m.

    I can't see anything. Then again...I am high.
  • Krassinator - July 7, 2010 9:22 p.m.

    Top right*
  • Krassinator - July 7, 2010 9:21 p.m.

    And no one has noticed the writing in the top left of the screen that needs to be decoded? No one? Below the alien baby killers. Those are babies that kill, Not aliens that kill babies...That would just be sick.

    My guess is that there is nothing in the picture and they're just saying there is to build up hype, Cloverfield-style (As in, they said the trailer for "1-18-08" had hints in them when it really didn't >_>). I see nothing in the picture that even strikes me as noteworthy aside from Isaac holding his weapon in his left hand which actually just screams "oversight" to me. Meh, I just want the game to come out so I can play it because I really want to see where this one goes after the original games final chapter.
  • RocketPenis - July 7, 2010 7:47 p.m.

    There is a image of someone, below Issac's left arm.
  • nuno004 - July 7, 2010 7:47 p.m.

    it would be awesome if it went online and had you with some friends surviving waves of enemies
  • Tygerclaws - July 7, 2010 7:24 p.m.

    Random observations: -Bottom right corner, there's more Unitological writing along the balcony, perhaps it spells something? -Glass window: Near the top, there are multiple depictions of Markers growing out of something, what almost looks like a person with their arms crossed, but I can't quite tell what it is. It almost looks like the statues at either side of said window. -Since this Isaac seems to be left-handed...perhaps it's a DIFFERENT person, just in the same model of suit? Or perhaps something has happened to Isaac's right hand, maybe he's feeling a little Necromorphy?
  • vinicusg.t.guedes - July 7, 2010 7:19 p.m.

    They will announce that it will be kinect-enabled, complete with full real-life dismemberment.
  • NeonSalmon - July 7, 2010 7:18 p.m.

    it must be the weird symbols on the thing the little things are hanging on to....
  • Chardan - July 7, 2010 6:43 p.m.

    All I noticed was the stubby phallus like thing in the glass window.
  • ventanger - July 7, 2010 6:37 p.m.

    Uhhhh... maybe the big spider thing is supposed to be the boss? Maybe Isaac's wife mutated? Just looks like a promo image to me.
  • Mexicutioner - July 7, 2010 6:24 p.m.

    God damn I want this game to come out already!
