Dead Space Remake Marker Fragments

In the Dead Space Remake there are a few new additions to the game. These new additions change a variety of things. One of the most important new additions is the adding of a special set of collectibles called Marker Fragments. Market Fragments are hidden throughout the game and can be found to unlock an alternative ending. This alternative ending unlocks the Reunion achievement/trophy. To help you find all of the alternative ending collectibles, here’s Hold To Reset’s complete Dead Space Remake Marker Fragments guide.

Unlock New Game+

Dead Space Remake New Game+ mode.
You start New Game+ from the Main Menu when unlocked.

Before you can head out and start collecting Marker Fragments you first need to put in a bit of work. This work requires having completed the game on any of the difficulties (can be Story difficulty). Once you beat the game you unlock the game’s New Game+ mode. When you unlock this mode you also receive the following:

  • 50,000 Credits.
  • 10 Nodes.
  • 5 Logs (Side Missions).
  • Advanced Soldier Rig (Suit Level 6).
  • Marker Fragments appear.

Once you have New Game+ mode unlocked start a playthrough of that mode. In this mode you will find a total of 12 Marker Fragments waiting to be collected. These fragments are located across 10 of the game’s Chapters. Chapters 5 & 10 have two each while Chapters 9 & 12 have none in them.

IMPORTANT: If you didn’t collect the Marker Fragments during each Chapter listed below you can still collect them. Once you reach Chapter 11 you can use the Tram to visit every location on the ship, allowing you to back track to get them. The guide below presents the collectibles in the order you encounter them during the main story.
