Sammy Studios today released a
new video trailer from its upcoming Vampire Western first-person shooter (FPS) "Darkwatch."
This is the first cinematic trailer
showcasing characters and events that make up the storied action in “Darkwatch.”
The video reveals how Wild West outlaw Jericho Cross inadvertently unleashes
Lazarus Malkoth, an ancient vampire lord and perennial malcontent who in-turn
dooms Jericho to vampirism. To retrieve his soul and save a West run wild by
Lazarus’ undead armies, Jericho joins the ranks of the Darkwatch, a powerful
secret society dedicated to hunting evil. As a skilled gunslinger and
half-vampire with supernatural abilities, Jericho becomes the organization’s
most potent weapon in the hunt for Lazarus.
Amidst this visual synopsis are
glimpses of the frenetically paced close-quarters combat found in the game.
Highlighted are both the sheer variety of enemies, and the many methods in which
they can be dispatched. “Darkwatch” delivers its unique style of quick-draw FPS
action and visually sensational setting, along with its innovative Judgment
system letting players walk the path of good or evil, when it releases on
PlayStation 2 and Xbox this spring. This game is rated M for Mature by the ESRB.
