Dark Sector’s powered-up protagonist ethic has put it in competition with Vivendi’s superb-looking Prototype, Digital Extremes’ Dave Kudirka has told videogaming247.
“There are a few action titles coming out in this first quarter that we’ll be competing with, but Prototype is definitely the title that appears to have generated comparison to Dark Sector in the online community,” he said. “I think the attractive monster-as-hero convention is the strongest connection between the two titles. And names like Devil May Cry, Metal Gear, and Grand Theft Auto always cast a big shadow, especially when you’re bringing a new IP to the table.”
Dark Sector recently hit headlines at getting banned in Australia for its violence level, but a dynamic difficulty setting, HUD-free gameplay and the “best death screams ever” are enough to lift the title above the rest of the slasher crowd, Kudirka said.
“From the outset of planning Dark Sector our goal was to immerse the player into the game as much as possible and now that technology allows us to do extremely realistic cut scenes in-engine along with a myriad of other tricks, we think we have gotten as close as possible to that goal,” he said.
Dark Sector ships for 360 and PS3 at the “end of March”. Hit the link for all of Dave’s answers to our questions.
