Video: Darkspore hero spotlight – Skar the assassin

By Stace Harman, Thursday, 21 April 2011 08:00 GMT

A new video’s landed for EA’s upcoming hybrid action RPG, Darkspore. Meet Skar: a dual wielding, death-dealing, stealthy son of a gun.

With all the characteristics of a classic assassin-class character, Skar looks perfect for those who enjoy a bit of stealth-camouflage and crit-dealing backstabbing.

The video features an in-depth look at Skar’s abilities, in addition to strategies that can be employed to make the most of his combat prowess.

Developed by Maxis, Darkspore is built on the Spore engine and features extensive character customisation, as well as competitive and co-op multiplayer.

Having previously been delayed, Darkspore is due for release on PC next Tuesday April 26 in the US and Thursday April 28 in Europe.

  • 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.
