Dark Sector multiplayer footage


Hot on the heels of our own video hands-on with Dark Sector comes brand new footage of the game's multiplayer mode. As we mentioned in our own video, Dark Sector's multiplayer is fairly unique among shooters. Those who have followed the game know that its protagonist, Hayden, has some very special supernatural powers, most notably his biological throwing blade. Rather than pitting a bunch of Haydens against one another, Dark Sector's multiplayer focus on pitting a group of normal soldiers against a single Hayden (or Hayden and another enhanced character in the case of team games). Hayden has the ability to create a shield or turn himself invisible, which gives him a much needed advantage against an entire squad of soldiers. Whoever takes Hayden down gets to play as him during the next round. We've played it and it works really well. Check out the new video after the break.

X3F TV -- Dark Sector hands-on

In the latest episode of X3F TV, we take a hands-on look at Dark Sector. In the video, we discuss the game's interesting mechanics, the single player campaign and also touch on Dark Sector's unique multiplayer mode. Overall, Dark Sector is shaping up to be a decent and, perhaps more importantly, different third person shooter. Check out the video and share your feedback in the comments.

New videos shed light on Dark Sector

Some fresh videos of Dark Sector have popped up at GameVideos. The videos are particularly illuminating concerning the game's storyline, which involves an operative being transformed by an alien infection. The video embedded above lays out the game's prologue, complete with Gordon-Freeman-style helicopter take down, infectious alien stabbing, and villainous monologue. The villainous monologue in particular is well done and gives us hope that the game's plot could be pretty interesting (or well presented at the very least). There are a handful of other gameplay videos too. Our favorite showcases the ability to control the main character's frisbee-knife thing in midair. Nice. Check it out after the break.
