The Dead Space remake is one of the best-looking games on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. It’s an oppressive survival horror title that, thanks to its excellent visual and audio design, makes players cautiously move from room to room as the dread of what’s on the other side of the door ramps up. In addition to its high graphical fidelity, its art design is truly unique with nothing else in the gaming space quite being able to match its take on a cold, industrial science fiction future except, of course, for games from the series’ past.
Because of how great Dead Space looks, many fans are curious whether it has a photo mode or not. Most AAA titles tend to feature some way for digital photographers to express themselves and because of how popular Dead Space is, many are looking forward to capturing the terror of the USG Ishimura on digital film. Here’s everything you need to know about a photo mode in the Dead Space remake.

Does Dead Space Remake Have a Photo Mode?
To be blunt: there currently is not a photo mode for the Dead Space remake. Despite the numerous looks behind the curtain during the development of the game, EA Motive never said anything about a photo mode one way or the other before the remake launched and, now that it’s here, photo mode is nowhere to be found.
While it’s certainly disappointing for those jumping into the game currently, it’s not unheard of for AAA studios to add a photo mode post-launch. It was recently done with titles like God of War Ragnarok and Returnal, so it’s possible that the Dead Space remake could get one somewhere down the line. As far as any official word from EA Motive, however, there’s not much to go on. The studio hasn’t said anything about if a photo mode could be added, so it’s not wrong to be hopeful, but would be incorrect to assume one was coming with a future patch.
That all said, there are still a lot of great digital photos to be taken in the Dead Space remake. It’s a gorgeous title that features no UI that isn’t dietetic meaning that it’s all seen in-universe. For example, Isaac’s map isn’t just being shown to the player, but Isaac himself is pulling it up. This means that you don’t have to worry about pesky UI elements if you’re looking to snap a quick picture, the only downside is that you won’t be able to move the camera how you’d like it.
