Chapter 1: Newcomer Tutorial

The Dead Space remake opens with Isaac watching a recording of his girlfriend, Nicole, talking about her work at Ishimura. Kendra greets him from behind before Isaac opens up about their long-term relationship. It isn’t long until they finally arrive at the USG Ishimura floating above Aegis VII.

The crew of the USG Kellion tries to contact the ship Ishimura but gets no response. Isaac tells the crew that it’s probably the communication on Ishimura that needs repair and that it will take him and Kendra two days to fix it. As Kendra taunts Isaac, Hammond tells the pilots to take them inside the ship.

However, as they prepare to board the Ishimura, there is a malfunction on the Kellion that draws them in. Isaac tells USG Kellion pilot Chen to use the stabilizers to bring them back safely. While working, the Kellion ship is damaged and the crew is stranded inside the Ishimura.

Follow the Security Team - Chapter 1: Newcomers

Follow the security team

As the crew exits the USG Kellion, they begin to wonder why the place is so deserted. They get no response from anyone on the Ishimura and begin to wander inside. Kendra registers Isaac at the Ishimura security checkpoint so he can open doors.

When Kellion’s crew arrives in the flight room area, the elevator is down and they are unable to continue. Hammond tells Isaac to go check the security console. However, when Isaac does so, the lights suddenly go out and there are noises in the vents.

Get Safe - Chapter 1: Newcomers

be safe

It isn’t long until the Necromorphs attack and most of the USG Kellion are killed except for Captain Hammond, Kendra and Isaac. Isaac gets separated from the rest of the crew and has to run to another area while the necromorphs chase him. It is here that you will learn how to sprint as you make your way to the elevator at the end of the hall.

The Necromorph chasing Isaac will go through the elevator doors, but they will quickly close, ripping him in half. This leaves Isaac safe but a hair’s breadth from death.

Get the Plasma Cutter - Chapter 1: New Arrivals

When the elevator stops its descent, Isaac arrives at some workshop. You will need to grab the Plasma Cutter from the table on the left, which will serve as your first weapon in the game. There are ammunition for it in the storage boxes that you can open on the right, and breakable boxes in the room that you can stomp on.

Isaac will hear screaming on the other side of the closed door. He aims the plasma cutter at the wires next to him and rotates the projectiles so that it cuts the wires horizontally or smashes them using your melee if you want to save ammo. This will open the door in time for the man to be assaulted by a Necromorph. After the Necromorph finishes him, this will be your first fight with a Necromorph.

Plasma Cutter - Chapter 1: New Arrivals

The Plasma Cutter is a weak weapon but it is more than enough to get the job done. Aim for the legs to paralyze the Necromorph and prevent it from moving too much. She then targets the sharp appendages on his back to cut them until he bleeds to death.

Put the tram in motion

From there, proceed through the corridors until you reach the tram where Kenda and Hammond will contact you. Kendra will then direct you to find a way to reconnect the tram terminus. Once the call ends, she can save her progress using a save station in the room and get some supplies before continuing.

Start the Tram - Chapter 1: Newcomers

The objective will take you to the Tram Repair Room, which is where you will find the Stasis Module as you descend. Isaac can slow down the door that opens and closes quickly in order to get through. This will take you into a hallway where the lights will suddenly go off for a moment before coming back on.

You can head to the bathroom to gather some supplies before going straight to the tram repair room. Once you’re done, you can continue to the Tram Repair Room. Once inside the tram repair room, you will have to call a new tram in the middle of the room and use the claws on both sides to hold it. Be careful, as the necromorphs will come out of the side vents during the process.

Replaced Tram - Chapter 1: New Arrivals

The left claw will automatically connect to the replacement tram without any problem. However, the claw on the right will require the use of Stasis and will then activate the tram repair terminal in the center before it disappears to start the replacement tram. There is a stasis recharge station behind the tram repair controls in case you need to recharge. Necromorphs could attack Isaac during this process.

Find the data dashboard

On the way to the maintenance bay, you will have the option of diverting power to the maintenance room or a supply room. Pick the supply room first so you can search for supplies and pick up a node that can be used for upgrades. Then go back to the circuit breaker and reapply power to the maintenance bay.

The data board can be found in the maintenance bay which is full of necromorphs. As soon as Isaac enters, he will be attacked. The maintenance bay office, where the data board can be found, is locked and you’ll need to take the freight elevator upstairs to divert power from the lights to the room.

Find the data board - Chapter 1: Newcomers

This will obscure the maintenance bay, so you’ll need to thread carefully, as the necromorphs will attack you in low visibility. Listen carefully to know when you are in danger. You’ll get the Data Board on the desk inside the Maintenance Bay Office which is now open, but feel free to stock up on items first. There is an upgrade bench in the maintenance bay office that you can use before you leave.

Install data plate

After collecting the data board, you will receive a call from Hammond telling you not to stay too long. Return her to the tram control room and install her in the main circuit of the tram network.

You can go ahead and turn the lights back on using the freight elevator so you can see where you’re going.

call the tram

Once the tram has been repaired and the Data Board has been installed, return to the Tram Control Room and call the tram. Hammond and Kendra will go inside before calling Isaac to tell him that he needs to help fix the USG Kellion.

Return to the Kellion

Go back the way you came before entering the tram control room. Use the cargo elevator to return to the flight room where the USG Kellion team was attacked. This time the supply room is unlocked and you can go inside to collect a node for upgrades before continuing on your way. Prepare for an ambush from the necromorphs on your way.

Return to the Kellion - Chapter 1: Newcomers

Once you return to the USG Kellion a cutscene will trigger. Isaac will talk to Hailey about what’s going on at the Ishimura.

run diagnostics

Go to the Damage Report screen next to Hailey and interact with her. Before Isaac can get a damage report, a screen flashed in front of the USG Kellion showing the singularity core being attacked by necromorphs shortly before it exploded throwing Isaac out the windows.

You will then have to fight some Necromorphs on the flight deck trying to get to Isaac. After dispatching them, he will receive a call from Hammond, who tells Isaac to find the captain in Medical Bay.

Getting to medical coverage

Go through the flight room again and go left. Watch out for a Necromorph ambush in the hallway leading to the bathroom. You could go there to get additional supplies before going on your way.

Getting to the Medical Deck Shop - Chapter 1: New Arrivals

As you enter the Flight Deck Tram Station, there is a store that you will encounter for the first time. You can upgrade your Suit for $10,000 credits before proceeding to the Medical Deck. If you don’t have the funds, you can sell items from your inventory. You can also use the upgrade bench in the next room.

When you’re done, head down the freight elevator and continue until you reach the medical deck. The moment you set foot in Medical Bay, you end up with Chapter 1: Newcomers.
