Darkspore First Look Preview


Posted July 21, 2010 - By Eric Eckstein


At first glance, Spore was pretty awesome. On second, it bored the heck outta me. Now years later, Maxis is leveraging what they learned and developing an action RPG, Darkspore, using some of the characteristics of Spore, like the famed creature creator, as well as game mechanics that make games fun. Whew. Harold Goldberg got his first look at Darkspore at a recent EA event, and found it quite monstrous:

"You’ll create hundreds of monstrous-looking heroes by choosing from thousands of body parts. There seem to be just as many non-playable characters in the game against which your squad of three will use some really inventive powers such as sending your enemies into a dimensional rift."

Squad-based action with monstrous heroes? I'm game for that. See if you are as well with our first look Darkspore preview with new screenshots and the teaser trailer. Expect to hear more about this game from the Maxis panel at Comic-Con 2010 later this week as well.
