View author's profile

A second skills trailer for vampiric third-person adventure Dark has emerged today, showcasing more of the supernatural abilities you'll be able to call upon as a badass bloodsucker.

There's 'obfuscation' which enables you to stalk your prey while shrouded in invisibility, 'regeneration' that replenishes your health with the blood of your enemies, 'domination' that hypnotises bad guys, and 'presence' that confuses multiple foes.

You can check out the previous skills trailer here for a look at hero Eric Bane's other vampire abilities. Dark will be sucking your blood this summer.

I read Obfuscation and then Between the Buried and Me popped into my head, I don't see why my mates are saying it looks crap. It looks like Dishonored with the twist of being a Vampire and NOT a Fairy... Looking at you Twilight!

Looks amazing, can't wait to get my hands on a Demo! (If there'll be one yet?)

Isn't it implied for a vampire that the blood of your enemy replenishes you?

I'm sorry... Did I upset some Twilight fans?

Looks sparsely populated (backgrounds, color palette) and the effects looked cookie cutter. I know this is a budget release, but it might be so cheaply made and devoid of quality that no one would ever touch it.

Aren't they just ripping off the exact names of the Vampires' skills from the old White Wolf Vampire: The Masquerade role-playing games?? (and pc TPS games??)

I mean they are exactly the same names for the abilities...

Just ignore the thumbs mate, a lot of people on this site are weird, it's like 'You have a different opinion to me? You must be a troll'

I honestly think that if this game isn't a huge glitchy mess, then it could be a good few hours of fun. This comes from one of the few who actually really enjoyed Alpha Protocol.

@9 That's what I was thinking and was wondering if the game was set in the same universe. Apparently not.

@9 and @14, there is even more evidence of them 'borrowing' from Vampire the Masquerade. If you look at the last two non secret achievements, "Just like a Ghost"'s achievement symbol is IDENTICAL to one of the power symbols from the VTM RPG that was on PC years back. And the LAST achievement, "Caine" uses the same symbol they used in VTM on PC for feeding. Not to mention that in that setting Caine was the first Vampire.
I'm trying to figure out if this game is a love letter to VTM fans or if they just 'borrowed' everything instead of coming up with something new.

First time i played a game with vampires was in legacy of kain then the last was probably in oblivion,more games should be made where you play as some sort of supernatural creature instead of the usual grunts we get in the many shooters out there.Still waiting for a decent werewolf game where you go around ripping people to pieces,i'd love to see a game of an american werewolf on london.

I dig middle-low tier games like this but you need to go in with the knowledge that this is a basic game. That lone thumbs down was probably someone that took umbrage at the Dishonored comparison.

@13: Yeah man! AP! There's just one problem. The interesting dialogue and setting and variety of skills (granted some of them were just junk) do not seem evident in this game. I watched everything I could on their site. There was a fifteen minute preview running through a museum level. It was rough but you can kind of tell that there's not going to be significantly more done to the story and such.

And yes @ everyone who mentioned VTM and the PC derivations. Obfuscation, Celerity...I don't remember if there are others in this game but the tiny bit of originality in this story still feels vaguely White Wolfish with diablerie needed to not lose your mind.

Despite all of this, I will play. But not at 50. I can't. If this were 30, I'd be there, maybe 40. For anyone that does get it out the gate though, please share what it's like.

this game has already been slashed in price at all major retailers, its now a sweet £28 new, possibly due to low preorders, if you check again u may be able to get a lower price now so check now. therefore u dont need to wait for a preowned as its already cheap as chips. adn u get the preorder bonus dowloads for your pc, baragin deal!
