Darkspore Gameplay Trailer is Very Spore-ish
While watching this new Darkspore trailer made up entirely of gameplay footage, I couldn’t help but feel completely lost. It’d be like if a trailer for a new Command and Conquer game were made up entirely of tanks shooting each other. And that’s what this trailer is. No story or context, just beasties battling and nerdy terms like “PVP” popping up every once in a while.
It does look pretty much exactly like Spore, though, which makes sense as the game has the word “spore” in the name. So while I felt a bit lost, it was also familiar.
Anyway, given the lack of context for the footage you’re about to see, the best way to consume it, probably, is to watch it, then read our Darkspore preview from PAX, and then watch the trailer again. It will all make sense. Here’s the trailer:
Darkspore hits the PC in February.
