Stealth, action, and vampires - how does that sound? Those are exactly the words you'd use to sum up Kalypso's new action-RPG,
you take on the role of an as-of-yet unnamed vampire who is able to slip in and out of the shadows as he takes down foes using his vampire abilities and attempts to unravel the mystery behind (obviously evil) global conglomerate Geoforge (that sounds like a company that makes extreme sporting goods and/or develops rock-climbing apps).
, or you can just follow the jump.

– Publisher Kalypso Media and developer Realmforge Studios are pleased to show off a selection of exciting new screenshots from DARK, the upcoming action-RPG for console and Windows PC. The captivating new screenshots will give gamers a deeper look into the characters and environments found in DARK, as well as showcasing the game’s unique 3D cel-shaded art style. DARK is a supernatural third-person stealth action game where players will explore the shadowy world of a vampire anti-hero as he fights against the forces of the GeoForge Corporation in an attempt to shed light to their dark secrets. DARK is scheduled for release Q2 2013.
DARK is a stealth action game with RPG elements that lets you slip into the role of the ultimate killer… a vampire. Stalk your enemies from the shadows then use powerful vampire abilities to attack and silently dispatch them! The exciting story of DARK immerses you in a world full of blood and darkness in which the hunter can become the hunted at any time. As you unravel the mystery behind the omnipresent and powerful global conglomerate, Geoforge, you must continually improve your character by developing powerful skills to aid you in remaining unobserved, or silence those unfortunate enough to take too keen an interest in you.
Features of DARK:
-Stealth and action combine as players walk the world in darkness and silence, attacking their unsuspecting foes with supernatural fury
-Use powerful vampire abilities and hard-hitting melee attacks to defeat dangerous enemies -- turn into a puff of smoke and disappear, or close with your foes in an instant!
-Powerful and intelligently controlled AI enemies mix the fantastic with the real-world. Battle police and elite special forces along with ghouls and other vampires
-Castles, museums, skyscrapers, nightclubs and more are rendered in stunning 3D cel-shaded graphics, beckoning the player to explore -- but beware, powerful enemies hide everywhere
