Chilling survival horror series "Dead Space" -- cribbing notes from sci-fi movies "The Thing" and "Event Horizon," warning us against mankind's unchecked lust for power -- has issued a three-minute story catch-up in advance of February's "Dead Space 3."

The first game in the series, released in 2008, was a surprise hit that reinvigorated interest a then-ailing survival horror genre; come 2011, "Dead Space 2" was trading some of that measured, terrifying pacing for more nectomorph-battling action.

"Dead Space 3" swaps space stations for a desolate snow planet and introduces a cooperative, multiplayer mission mode.
