Viper gets introduced for Darkspore

EA’s revealed the Viper hero class for Maxis’ Darkspore.

The viper is said to be a “toxic ravager” that will have damaging over-time attacks, “enormous blades built into its muscular body” and that it has the ability to add more poison-covered spines.

There’s a video of it in action over at Massively.

Game’s out on March 29 for PC.

  • 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.
