To get the Dead Space Remake secret ending, you must first finish the main campaign at least once on any difficulty, then replay the game on New Game+ mode. It’s in the New Game Plus that you’ll get access to a new collectible called a Marker Fragment. Collect all twelve Marker Fragments listed above in each chapter, and that will unlock a new scene at the end of the game.

Be warned that the New Game Plus mode features stronger enemy variants which makes the journey of collecting the Dead Space Remake Marker Fragments more challenging. The randomizer AI will also ensure that your experience will differ from your previous playthrough.
