Kalypso Media has released screen shots for it’s upcoming stealth-action title: DARK, available for the Xbox 360. Scheduled for release this summer, on PC and console, DARK will immerse players in a near-future world of vampires who secretly slip through all levels of society. Tad bit of a generic premise if you ask me, but let’s see what they’ve got?
In DARK, you will take on the role of Eric Bane, a newly turned vampire on a quest to uncover the elder vampires and their sinister plans for humanity (Not sure why you’d care… being a vampire, you think you’d be down for a sort of “kill all humans” plan). Players will be able to use a variety of melee combat moves, coupled with stealth and action-oriented vampire special powers that will present the classic player choice of: Kill everyone quietly, or kill everyone noisily.
With that out of the way… let’s take a look at these screen shots:
I guess, for those of you out there that just REALLY love vampires, this could be a game to look out for? Personally, it seems to be wandering around the realm of mediocrity. The plot, the mechanics, even the visuals all seem a bit… pedestrian. We’ll see if future updates can’t get us a little more excited.
