Five years of Dark Sector PR coming to an end

New batch of screens hails the dev cycle's home straight

Digital Extremes has released a new batch of screenshots showing its long, long, long in development sci-fi action game Dark Sector, which should be with us this month.

Five years ago the dark and moody third-person shooter was originally set in space, with an abundance of generic space marines. Now it takes place in communist Russia, which is clearly much better.

Apart from the straight-forward shooting, the main attraction is the power-absorbent, triple-bladed glaive, which puts a unique twist on the fighting and puzzles by 'absorbing' fire, ice and electricity.
