Cel-shading, vampires and RPGs are all pretty cool, so assuming you like at least one of those things, there’s good reason to keep an eye on Kalypso Media’s DARK, which just had its latest trailer released. Insert obligatory ‘better than Twilight’ joke here.
Unnecessary use of Wilhelm scream and press quotes aside, the trailer is pretty interesting. We learn about protagonist Eric Bane (no connection to Eric Bana) and get our first glimpse at some gameplay footage. Stealth looks to be a big part of the game, though being an RPG, we imagine you’ll get to customize your playstyle to a fair degree. While the game does use a rather dark color palette, the use of purple jives arguably well with the cel-shaded look. Remind anyone of The Darkness II? View the trailer for yourself and let us know what you think!
DARK is set to release for PC and Xbox 360 in Q2 2013. Stay tuned for more news on this vampiric project.
