Dark Void takes the gameplay mechanic we've seen before in games such as Superman and Iron Man, and adds flight to what would normally be a typical third person shooter. Add in the vertical cover system developed by Airtight Games, as well as a sure-to-be-memorable score composed by Battlestar Galactica composer Bear McCreary, and you have the recipe for an awesome gaming experience. If the recent movie rumors are true, Brad Pitt may bring Dark Void to life on the silver screen. Which means we could see this new IP turn into a brand new multi-million dollar franchise. Does this sound like a winner to you?
Based on Dante Alighieri's poem, The Divine Comedy, you control the character, Dante, to chase your beloved Beatrice into Hell and free her soul from Lucifer. The player will find themselves playing through the nine Circles of Hell to save her. Limbo, Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Anger, Heresy, Violence, Fraud and Treachery are all levels you'll need to face to complete the game. You can imagine the amount of creative flexibility Visceral Games must have had when thinking of demented and twisted ideas for each of these circles. The sky is the limit and I look forward to seeing the finished product. Even if I may find some images disturbing.
