All Changes With Impossible Mode in the Remake of Dead Space

This is a brutal difficulty setting which will push the limits of everything you’ve previously known in the experience. The original Dead Space had this difficulty setting and there aren’t too many changes apart from there only being one save file you will have access to. You need to also make sure to save at whatever save stations you can find as there isn’t any autosave.

All of the other changes with the mode are the same compared to the original. Some of these are that you will deal less damage than before but take higher damage from enemies. Generally, a lot of the main changes carry over from Hard difficulty mode such as the aforementioned damage increase from enemies. The item resources will notably be much lower as they will drop less. Whether you are playing the game on a Steam Deck or not you will have to be extra careful of everything in the game world.
