How To Unlock Impossible Mode

Like all Dead Space games, it features a plethora of game modes. Ranging from Story, Easy, Medium, Hard, and then the infamous Impossible Mode. With the exception of Impossible Mode, all other modes are pre-unlocked and fairly easy to play. To first unlock Impossible Mode, we have added some details below.

Unlocking Impossible Mode is not an easy task in itself. Unlock Impossible Mode requires you to first beat the game on Hard Mode, an already hard mode. Isaac Clarke is already extremely fragile in Hard Mode, susceptible to much more damage than normal. 

When and if you make it out of this mode alive, congratulations, you have unlocked an even more difficult method. The Hard Mode is nothing in comparison to the Impossible Mode, and you will be able to bare witness to this fact.

Playing Impossible Mode

If you have managed to unlock the Impossible Mode, give yourself a pat on the back, not everyone reaches this point. The difference between Hard and Impossible Mode isn’t very apparent, but they make this mode ten times more difficult. 

To begin with, autosave is automatically disabled, with no way to turn it on in Impossible Mode. Although the damage is still the same as in Hard Mode, you only have one shot at this mode. If you happen to die while making your way through the mode, you will be reset back to the beginning. That’s right, no more starting off at the last checkpoint, back to the beginning in Impossible Mode. There are some ways to bypass this, but that is scamming your way through. 

When you do finish Impossible Mode, you will be met with some really cool prizes. First thing first, you are awarded the “Untouchable” achievement for completing the Impossible Mode, rightfully so we would say. Apart from this, you also get the Burnished Suit and the Hand Cannon, more commonly known as the Foam Finger gun.
