I find Dark to be a weird little game because it takes vampires - practically the most powerful creature in all of Western myth and legend - and makes them skulk around in the shadows as if they're not strong enough to attack a threat head on.
But whatevs, I'm not here to debate the relative merits of one vampire mythology versus another. I'm here to tell you about Dark's new DLC. It's called Cult of the Dead and features vamprotagonist Eric Bane. Apparently this "cult of the dead" can control the dead. Seems like a big deal for a vampire.
Cult of the Dead will be available for digital download on PC starting on Dec 5th and soon thereafter on the Xbox 360. It will run you $4.99
