Already being picked up by Brad Pitt’s production company, Capcom’s Dark Void has started making some serious waves in both the video game and movie industries. If you hadn’t heard of Dark Void, strap a jetpack on and pull yourself out from under the rock you have been hiding under.
Given a spotlight back at San Diego Comic-Con, Dark Void is a futuristic mashup of a sci-fi third person shooter combined with The Rocketeer. Add in the new “vertical combat” mode where players progress upwards as fire rains down from above from dozens of enemies and you have yourself an outstanding looking game with incredible graphics that only a company like Capcom can provide.
The story takes place in a mysterious place known as the Void where our hero Will must battle a group of mechanical aliens known as the Watchers who are hell bent on destroying humanity. With only the basic weapons and jetpack at his disposal at the game’s start, Will must overcome insane odds in this uniquely styled adventure.
