‘DARK’ Awakens From Its Slumber With An Official Trailer

DARK

We haven’t heard much from stealth/action/horror hybrid DARK since its teaser debuted back in May of last year. At the time it looked intriguing, and I’m always saying there aren’t enough vampire games, but the stealth genre is one that’s particularly difficult to get right. That always worries me about games like this, because if the stealth mechanics don’t work well or the AI is dumb, they could take the rest of the game down with it.

We’ll find out when DARK releases on the PS3 and Xbox 360 — hopefully at a discounted price — in Q2 of this year, or somewhere between April-June. Until then, I recommend you check out this new trailer, which features actual gameplay.

Could that Kalypso logo take any longer? I feel like that can be trimmed down a bit.

For some reason I love that one of the media quotes they use in the trailer is “DARK does a lot of things right,” that just tickles me. Like, that’s the best thing they said about your game? Honestly, DARK has ‘rental’ written all over it, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t look like a great way to spend a particularly uneventful weekend. The cel-shaded visuals look particularly good. Anyone interested?

Have a question? Feel free to ever-so-gently toss Adam an email, or follow him on Twitter and Bloody Disgusting.

    That logo reminds me of the ones before movies. You think the movie started, but it’s just another studio logo lol.
