Spacetime Studios has officially announced the third installment into their ‘Legends’ series of MMORPGs, a vampire themed game titled Dark Legends. In this upcoming game players will embrace the secret societies of vampires, challenge the hordes of undead, werewolves, demons and humans that hunt them. The title will be released for Android, iOS and Chrome early this 2012.
Fans of the highly popular Legends franchise, Pocket Legends and Star Legends, will see quite the gameplay evolution in Dark Legends. The combat system will draw players deeper into a game that delivers fast paced, action oriented gameplay that includes new mechanics such as charge attacks and the ability to drain enemies. A wide assortment of solo and multiplayer content will also be available in Dark Legends.
The biggest change is a much deeper focus on narrative. In addition to story communicated during the 3D multiplayer missions, players will periodically be given the option to complete short action missions with a single tap. These missions will have brief cut scenes to create an interactive storybook, where players experience the life of a vampire up-close and personal.
According to the blurb on the Dark Legends website:
“Since the dawn of time, Vampires have woven themselves secretly into the fabric of human society. These dark immortals have commanded their prey from the shadows for centuries, dominating the souls of the living and suppressing any uprising of knowledgeable humans. With the approach of the End of Times, mankind has finally decided to rid themselves of this whispered threat.
The Vampire Nation has bolstered its ranks to ensure that they remain the rightful rulers of the night.”
The previous Legends titles, Pocket Legends and Star Legends: The Blackstar Chronicles have been downloaded more than seven million times, making it the world’s most popular mobile MMO franchise.
Dark Legends with be shown for the first time publicly at GDC 2012.
What do you think of the upcoming game? I’m pretty excited for it myself, I like the sound of a quality cross-platform vampire game.
