10 Video Game True Endings That Change EVERYTHING
While only one possible ending is present in 2013's Dead Space 3, it creates a huge cliffhanger that only a further instalment of the series could hope to explain. In it, Isaac Clarke and John Carver manage to stop the convergence event by the Tau Volantis Moon, causing it to drop down onto the planet and send the two heroes plummeting down into nothingness.
You could easily just presume them dead...were it not for the subsequent DLC, Dead Space 3: Awakened.
Isaac and John, very much alive, fight their way back to the ancient ship, the Terra Nova, and set a course for Earth, praying that they're not too late to stop the inevitable devastation. However...
Entering Earth's orbit, they discover that the Brethren Moons, the necromorphs' final evolutionary stage, have beaten them to it, and are attacking the planet from all angles. As if that wasn't bad enough, a Brethren Moon then appears right in front of the ship, causing Isaac and John to cry out and the screen to cut to black.
So, are they really dead this time? Will the Earth survive the attack? With Visceral Games being shut down, this new cliffhanger will just be even more tantalising than the last. But with the existence of this DLC, the necromorph threat is shown to be far from neutralised, and, unlike the game's original ending, the day is clearly not saved.
