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.

Dark Sector goes dark until 2008

Playstation Universe reports that Dark Sector, the space-espionage thriller turned Eastern-European alien invasion action game, has been delayed. Originally billed as the first next-gen (now current-gen) game, Dark Sector has been pushed back to 2008. Why? According to Tamara Sanderson, a representative of D3Publisher, the game has been delayed in order to avoid this year's packed holiday season. Considering the oncoming deluge of holiday titles -- Alone in the Dark 5, Assassin's Creed, and of course GTAIV and Halo 3 -- we can't exactly find fault with D3's logic.

Let's just hope Dark Sector makes it out before the next development shift hits and someone turns it into a goofy kart racer.

Watch Dark Sector video, our head a splode

Team Xbox has a new video for Dark Sector, and it looks oh, so sweet. It has commentary from a Digital Extremes developer, and the game looks gorgeous, and the gameplay interesting. It's got a very dark and moody atmosphere, and the circular blade you have is badass. The gunplay comes complete with a (gasp!) cover system, and stealth kills when you're up close and personal. It kind of reminds us of a modern Prince of Persia: Warrior Within, almost. Does it look amazing to you too, or do we need our eyes checked?

Dark Sector borrows from RE4

There is a new gameplay montage of Dark Sector floating around the web today. For those who don't remember, Dark Sector was originally a high tech stealth action game set in space. It has since become an alien tech stealth action game set in Eastern Europe. About the only thing we really know about the game thus far is that the main character has been dispatched on a mission and becomes infected with an alien, um, something. This particular infection is okay, though, because it gives him nifty super powers. Much better than your garden variety Earth viruses we'd say. The montage released today focuses mostly on the Krull blade you see our hero wielding above. It looks like you can endow the blade with elemental properties -- fire, lightning, etc. -- to help you in certain situations. The game also shares more than a passing resemblance to Resident Evil 4, right down to the perspective and laser sight aiming system. Check out the video after the break.

Dark Sector faces the ch, ch, changes

Dark Sector has undergone some significant changes over the years. Way back in 2004, Dark Sector was revealed as the "first" next gen game. It was going to blow our minds whenever the mysterious "Xbox 2" finally showed up. A trailer for the game was released, featuring a man in a cybernetic ninja suit performing sneaking around on a space station. Later trailers revealed that the game was about man reaching the outer edges of our solar system, or "the dark sector." A new trailer is now available on Marketplace, and it's, shall we say, different. It looks like the developers have dropped the space theme altogether, opting instead for Eastern Europe. We know, we know ... space, Eastern Europe, what's the difference, right? Makes perfect sense. Oh, and apparently Dark Sector has something to do with the Cold War now. Oh, oh, and our hero no longer has a cybernetic ninja suit, but is instead infected by something that grants him special powers. He does have a new badass blade thing, though, and that counts for something.

For posterity's sake, we have embedded both the old and new trailers after the break. Watch them both and see how much a game can change in two years.
