This week, gamers get a bite from a Kalypso game that’s been hiding in the shadows, entitled Dark; it garners definite attention after receiving some praise at E3.
On the other end of things, PC gamers finally get a massive expansion to the always-popular Civilization V, adding a wealth of new features to keep your god-like hands busy.
Dark (PC, Xbox 360) – 9 July 2013
Hiding in the shadows is Dark – a stealth action role-playing game from German developer Realmforge Studios, releasing on 12 July.
Dark follows Eric, a vampire who can take control of some impressive supernatural abilities, such as teleportation, invisibility, and the ability to see in the dark and slow down time.
As you’d expect, players can regenerate the vampiric abilities by drinking the blood of enemies.
The game looks interesting and hopefully lives up to its promise.
