First i would like to thank "makingmusic" for the permission & the Sticky.

 

Dark Void is an upcoming video game being developed by Airtight Games and published by Capcom on Unreal Engine 3.

In the game players must face an alien threat that humanity had previously banished. The game mixes on-foot and mid-air combat. It also features a unique Vertical Cover system which allows the player to take cover while looking up or down. In one video released by the developer, the main character, Will, is shown flying his jetpack into a generator, and taking cover at the bottom of ledges, firing up at enemies above him.

Plot :


The game's story will center around a cargo pilot named William Agustus Grey who crashes in the Bermuda Triangle. From there, he is teleported to a parallel universe where he encounters other humans, called Survivors. Together, Will and the survivors must battle an alien race known as the Watchers to return to Earth. The Watchers came from afar, making humans do their bidding, whilst being treated as gods. Eventually people known as Adepts emerged and banished the Watchers to the realm in which our pilot is trapped. With the help of Nikola Tesla, they retrofit watcher technology and fight the watchers. Will will have to fight many enemies in order to return to Earth.

Gameplay :


Dark Void is a third person shooter in which players must make extensive use of cover to engage enemies, but it adds new elements to the third-person shooter genre; your character will obtain a hover pack in the game, and, though it is not possible to fly using the hover pack due to a lack of fuel, it is possible for Will to make large jumps over and around cover to shoot at opponents. Later in the game, Will acquires a jet pack (with mounted guns), allowing him to fly. While the jet pack can be used at any given time, one's surroundings must be taken into consideration - making contact with a wall or roof while flying results in instant death. One of the more exciting elements is "vertical cover." In the game, players come to locations where they have to fight their way up or possibly down; for example, descending a canyon wall or climbing a large tower. Players will be able to hang under ledges and shoot upward at enemies on neighboring ledges. At times, players will lose their grip on ledges they are climbing, forcing them into a mini-game in which players have to tap buttons to regain their grip.

At points in the game, players will be able to hijack airborne alien ships. In order to gain control of the ship, players must engage in a mini-game to kick the pilot out and reach the controls.
