EA has unveiled DarkSpore, a brand new action RPG experience that's being developed by Maxis Studio for the PC and is due sometime early of 2011 next year. Inspired by Spore, the game boasts a dynamic and fast-paced action battle system.
"Darkspore is inspired in part by the award-winning creature editor tech of Spore, but also in large part from the team's own passion for gaming and prior experience," said Lucy Bradshaw, General Manager of Maxis Studio. "The team has combined these inspirations to produce a unique take on the action RPG genre."
DarkSpore features both a full-fledged single player campaign and a four player co-op campaign. Players will be able to collect various living biological weapons in order to defeat the DarkSpore. These genetic heroes can be fully customized and decked out with whatever weapons and armour deemed worthy enough.
EA has scheduled an early 2011 release for DarkSpore.
