DARK was announced quite recently. It’s billed as a third-person Action-RPG in which you play as a vampire in a modern city, attempting to thwart the GeoForge corporation. Why then, Kalypso, did you choose to make your debut trailer feature the first-person perspective of a GeoForge soldier?! Misleading, much?

The short trailer, which can be seen below, features a soldier and his buddy, both wielding guns, enterring what looks like a warehouse in order to investigate. Finally, in the last 20 seconds or so, we actually get a glimpse of a vampire; you know, the creatures this game is based on. Way to go, Kalypso. You’ve already got people on Gametrailers.com dismissing this game as another bland shooter when it isn’t even one.

DARK will be available in early 2013 for the Xbox 360 and PC. Hopefully the game will get some better marketting by that time.
