The Darkness images

The Darkness images

2K Games also released these images, new as far as I can tell, of The Darkness. I wonder if the Starbreeze developers will manage to surprise us as much as with the incredible Riddick.

Awesome! I dont think they showed any multiplayer footage yet? Playing as a Darkling sounds fun :D
I hope this one gets reviews in the 9+ range.

whats the frame rate set at on this ? sure hope it does not stagger :( lot of detail there.
Commented on 2007-01-10 14:46:35
sick, and man of fear if you think that this runs 60 fps than think again

this is really something eh!?... A sure hit... I bet this one wont get overlooked like riddick was!

These images are very nice. Yeah I would also like to see how the multiplayer is going to work and how they are going to make use of his powers over the multiplayer. What would be cool is like a mode where you can only use darklings to kill people. Haha that would be great with the tenticles and just see someone fly across your screen. Well hopefully the multiplayer will be better than dark watch.

i don't know really. Some of the screens do look pretty darn good, but a batch in the middle are really less than stellar. almost seems like two different games...

Are the screens all from the same version, Blim? 'Cause it really looks like two different lighting engines...

hmm.. I'm wondering...

Very interested in how the multiplayer mode pans out, although I'm most interested in seeing how the campaign works out. A lot of my faith in this game revolves around just how wonderful a game Riddick was..I have some high expectations here.

Seems almost every game has some sort of multiplayer component these days, but some games pull it off far better than others. In a lot of games, multiplayer seems like a after thought more than anything.

Yea..they've revealed a (very) little bit about how that will work, too.

In terms of multiplayer, you'll actually play as Darklings online, and "face other players in traditional multiplayer modes as well as all-new innovative game modes". After Riddick's missing multiplayer mode, it's nice to see Starbreeze taking this side of the gameplay seriously.

Looking very good, since they made Riddick which was one of the best games ever made, this should good too.

Does anyone know what kind of superpowers this guy has? Is he immortal?

Ahhhh Darkness my love, I have not forgotton about you.

ANOTHER doom clone? we shall see...

Looks good tho! nothing stunning.. but still no slacker as far as the visuals go.
Commented on 2007-01-10 17:08:14
i hope the gameplay with your own monsters is good!!
i'm curious how that is going to work out
Commented on 2007-01-10 17:10:17
Actually the shots looks heavily photoshop'd(edit: might be cutscenes), Except those in the middle with the tentacles.... Im sure the game will be great when its done!
Commented on 2007-01-10 17:29:04
Ugh, yuck and blergh @ the hands and guns :(. I thought it looked better a while ago!
Commented on 2007-01-10 17:38:18
Not quite a Doom clone--I don't recall having supernatural control over strange creatures in Doom :)

Sure it's a dark run and gun sort of FPS, but there seems to be a bit of a twist too.

i can't wait to play the game and those pics look awesome.

GoW raised the gfx bar to ridiculous heights - fortunately gameplay is all that matters. :)

Is every UE3 game destined to look the same? I'm not sure what it is about UE3 that does it, possibly the bloom effect.

Well, Rainbow Six and Gears of War are day and night in my opinion.

On topic: This game looks very nice and promising, just don't know if it's my kind of game (hopes for a demo).

nope, i dont know what it runs at, hence my question :D

and if wae have to sacrifice AI and gameplay for frame rate i dont want 60fps (fall of duty 3)

i think it seems quite intresting, guns just look like there in there for something extra to do when bored of getting your demon midget gnomes to do everything, looks great :D

GoW didn't raise the bar to ridiculous heights. This game definitely has better textures. GoW just does a good job of making everything not look flat.

Time travel in a video game. Especially to WWII era. How unique.

Looks sweet aside from that, which I think is retarded. They should have kept it a presently set game.

  • Tinks
    Tinks yeah I haven't enjoyed it much at all tbh (20 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX If people were looking for a fresh experience it wouldn't be TitanFall 2. That's their whole problem. I don't think TitanFall 2 would have been "huge" in the Spring. (36 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I still don't get why people have a problem with cosmetic loot boxes. (38 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts released alongside BF and CoD games. Though even then I would still save it for a year without a new BF, so it would only go against CoD. (50 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts They forgot TF1 didn't make a big splash after launch, but if TF2 was released like I said, it would most likely been a huge hit and then the franchise would have been known enough for a TF3 to be (50 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts had already played BF1 and CoD:IW/MW for hundreds of hours and were looking for a new fresh experience. Really, really horrible decision to launch it alongside BF1 and CoD, plus in the busiest period. (52 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts It might have to do with that momentum I mentioned earlier. When I think of TF2, I can't even imagine how sussceful it would be if launched in March, April or May. Would also get all the players who (54 minutes ago)
