Although the developers Motive Studio are faithfully following the original, players can collect Marker Fragments to unlock an alternate ending for Dead Space Remake. However, they’re particularly well hidden and easy to miss, so you’ll need our guide on where to find the locations of each Dead Space Remake Marker Fragment.
All 12 Dead Space Remake Marker Fragment Locations
Here is where you can find each of the Marker Fragment locations in Dead Space Remake:

To get the secret ending in Dead Space Remake, you must first finish the main campaign at least once on any difficulty, and then play it again in New Game+ mode. It is in New Game Plus where you will have access to a new collectible called marker fragment. Collect the twelve Marker Shards listed above in each chapter, and that will unlock a new scene at the end of the game.
Note that the New Game Plus mode features stronger enemy variants, making the journey of collecting Dead Space Remake marker shards more challenging. The randomizer AI will also ensure that your experience differs from your previous game.
