Bracknell, UK, 10th May, 2012

Media is pleased to unveil DARK, an exciting third-person stealth-action game for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and for Windows PC. DARK -- developed by RealmForge, creators of the award-winning Dungeons -- puts players in the role of a vampire out to discover the secrets of the mysterious global GeoForge Corporation.

By making the most of powerful vampire skills, stealth and lethal combat abilities, players will engage and destroy their enemies, while moving silently through a stylized futuristic cityscape. The treacherous techno universe of DARK is rendered in gorgeous cel-shaded graphics with gameplay that tests the players’ ability to master both stealth and combat. DARK is slated for a global release in early 2013.


DARK is a stealth action game with RPG elements that lets you slip into the role of the ultimate killer… a vampire. Stalk you enemies from the shadows then use powerful vampire abilities to attack and silently dispatch them! The exciting story of DARK immerses you in a world full of blood and darkness in which the hunter can become the hunted at any time.

As you unravel the mystery behind the global conglomerate that seems omnipresent and all-powerful, continually improve your character by developing powerful skills to aid you in remaining unobserved, or make quick process of those unfortunate to take too keen an interest in you.

Features of DARK:
  • Stealth and action combine as players walk the world in darkness and silence, attacking their unsuspecting foes with supernatural fury
  • Use powerful vampire abilities and hard-hitting melee attacks to defeat dangerous enemies -- turn into a puff of smoke and disappear, or close with your foes in an instant!
  • Powerful and intelligently controlled AI enemies mix the fantastic with the real-world. Battle police and elite special forces along with ghouls and other vampires
  • Castles, museums, skyscrapers, nightclubs and more are rendered in stunning 3D cel-shaded graphics, beckoning the player to explore -- but beware, powerful enemies hide everywhere
  • RPG element mix with a compelling story – players will build up their skills through successful evasion and combat, while advancing the story through conversations with NPCs

I really enjoy cel shading... Smile
But is it a 3rd or 1st person shooter? The video doesn't clarify that, at least to me Tongue

Humm.. so what is it? I really think it's cool not to be a shooter, not my type of game.
But then again I saw the video and yep, it has a lot of fps elements, but also adventure and action ones. So, after all, it's like that 2004 xbox game "Breakdown" or a completely different thing?

Thanks!

You don't have a gun, so it definately disqualifies as "shooter" Wink.

The best description (like it says in the text above) is "stealth-action-game". You sneak around enemies trying to avoid them but are more than capable of killing them, if they are isolated.

Ah thanks! Now that I'm deeply playing a lot of x360 and pc Kalypso games and found about DARK through my Youtube subscription.
I really like the cel-shaded atmosphere featured in these screens, but I can't really tell anything related to cel-shading in the trailer. So it's more like Darkness 2? Deep, dark cel-shading?
Thanks!
