Systems designer Paul Sottisanti introduces us to another of Drakspore’s 25-plus heroes: Andromeda, the Gravitic War Master.

Find out the meaning of this enigmatic appellation (and the equally mysterious “tempest class” descriptor) in the trailer below.

If you don’t like the look of him, I guess you’ve another 24 to choose from at least – or you can just customise the bejeezus out of him. Darkspore hits Mac and PC in the US on March 29.

Thanks, Blue.

  • Darkspore will be unplayable from March 1

    Darkspore will go, uh, dark next week.

  • Darkspore reinstated on Steam

    Darkspore is once more available on Steam. The action RPG returned to Valve’s digital distribution service overnight. EA has not explained its temporary absence, which added fuel to speculation that support for the game had ended. EA has pish-poshed such talk, noting that Maxis recently corrected a nasty error.
