DS3 Retro Mode

Isaac Clarke on the USM Eudora in Retro Mode.

Retro Mode is a new mode exclusive to Dead Space 3. It is unlocked after playing through Hardcore Mode using New Game+[1][2]. The mode is an aesthetic throwback to 8-bit gaming of the early to late eighties[3]. Noticeable changes using Retro mode include jagged or choppy frame rate for the general environment and character animation. The loading screen pays homage to the ZX Spectrum.
