Dead Space Remake Alternate Ending How to Obtain – Marker Fragment Locations Guide

how to get dead space remake alternate ending

One of the newer features added to the Dead Space remake that wasn’t present in the original game is a secret alternate ending, and to get to it, players need to collect 12 different Marker Fragments scattered throughout the story when you play it a second time around. If you need help finding the markers, check out our quick Dead Space remake alternate ending guide where each Marker Fragment’s location is listed.

Do note that once your reach a certain point in the story, you won’t be able to backtrack for the Marker Fragments, so it’s recommended you collect them as you play through the story again. It’s also worth mentioning that the Marker Fragments only spawn in once you unlock New Game Plus, so if you haven’t finished the story just yet, you may want to do so first.

After that, play the game normally until you reach the ending, and this time, you’ll be treated to the secret ending instead.

Getting to the new secret ending for the Dead Space remake does require a bit of searching, but it’s a great way to spice up New Game Plus and serves as a treat for Dead Space fans old and new. Enjoy the secret ending!
