Heres a new trailer for an upcoming game called DarkSpore that is hitting shelves on February 2 2011. From what I can gather its a science fiction role playing game from Maxis (the studio that brought Sims and Spore) and I assume it picks up from the space stage in Spore like the expansion Galactic Adventures although the platforms are unknown I think we can assume it follow up onto the PC for sure, not positive if it enters the Wii or other platforms.
Its pretty obvious that DarkSpore is for the core gamers and the true fans for Spore, its pretty clear that DarkSpore is for a more mature audience but knowing Maxis not overly mature. I hope its an expansion of sorts I want to return to Spore with a much more serious approach written by "some of the most talented minds in the gaming industry ".
Heres me curious!
Here the official description:
Darkspore will feature dynamic, fast-paced action as players battle across alien worlds to save the galaxy from the mutated forces of Darkspore in a four-player co-operative and full single-player campaign, as well as intense multiplayer battles. In order to defeat the malicious Darkspore, players will need to collect an arsenal of living weapons – genetic heroes with different combat abilities – and upgrade them with tens of thousands of collectible body parts and armor.Check all screenshots here: Kotaku
Darkspore will feature three unique classes of five different genetic hero types, with a limitless number of upgrades and customizations available through the parts players collect on each planet level. As players progress, Darkspore builds in intensity, with new planets and enemy forces requiring players to strategically select the right squad and ability combinations to succeed in their missions.
