A Force Field was a projected energy barrier present in the Dead Space universe. Although this technology was rarely seen and used, it was present in at least two Dead Space games. The primary function of this technology appeared to be the containment of atmosphere aboard a spaceship or space station after conventional systems such as emergency bulkhead doors failed.
They appeared to be translucent with a blue glow and visible particles toward the edges.
