You’re days away from the darkest struggle for survival as the world around you and reality as you knew it, plummets into the dark void. The much-anticipated video game from Capcom is coming to Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. Can you save Earth against perilous, ancient visitors who want to reclaim it? The Dark Void awaits your visit.
Something is consuming our universe, a vast and ancient force almost beyond our comprehension. Millions of years ago, the minions of that power found their way to the 3rd planet of an unremarkable yellow star. Ours. The race they created came to call their masters “The Watchers.” For millennia we knew them as gods and served their dark purposes, but a few humans developed extraordinary powers. They were known as the Adepts and they rose up, banishing The Watchers into a parallel universe, where they’ve manipulated and schemed from afar. That is, of course, until now.
J&R JR.com is the place to go for your dose of the Dark Void for PS3, X360 and Windows PC .
Dark Void is a new sci-fi action-adventure game combining an adrenaline-fueled blend of aerial and on-foot combat set in a parallel universe called “The Void.” Take on the role of Will, a pilot on a routine air cargo flight dropped into incredible circumstances as he crashes in the Bermuda Triangle leading him to be trapped in the Void. Will soon finds himself swept into a desperate struggle for survival at the head of a group called The Survivors. Trapped in the Void, these resistance fighters are battling to hold off a mysterious alien race that plans to threaten Earth.
The unique combination of in-air and on-ground combat creates a thrilling new gameplay dynamic to the third-person shooter experience. Taking 3-D action to a whole new level, the vertical combat system of Dark Void allows players to dangle from thousand foot drops as they take cover and take out enemies from above and below, bringing a whole new sense of vulnerability and thrill to the player. Defying gravity in vertical combat is only half the battle as, over time, Will is upgraded to a powerful rocket pack allowing for fierce in-air combat. Fly through the void at unparalleled speeds shooting down anything in your path. Blasting away at massive bosses has never been this much fun as Dark Void offers a unique grip system made up of a variety of grip-based mini-games including skyjacking UFOs mid-flight.
