About Darkest of Days
In Darkest of Days, you get to experience some of the most varied gameplay ever released in one title. Things will never get stale as you travel to distant times and fight alongside people from that time period. Fighting in Antietam (the bloodiest day of the American Civil War) feels much different than fighting on the side of the Russians at Tannenberg (where the Russians withstood 140,000 casualties in WWI).
Fight in 5 Different Time Periods
Whether its in Pompeii, Antietam, WWI, WWII, or Little Big Horn you will fight with real weapons from the time period. You will battle against enemies that fight in different ways, all reflective of how fighting was done at the time.
- You will fight against the Confederates (and the Union at times), facing a staggering number of troops, all fighting in unison. Ready, aim…steady men…FIRE!
- You will jump from the trenches in WWI to lead an attack against the Huns. You will fire artillery to hit distant targets. You will defend to the last man!
- You will fight in Pompeii, while Mt. Vesuvius is spewing ash and fire into the atmosphere. You will fight amongst a frightened population, fleeing for their lives.
Play From Opposing Sides Of Conflicts
Nearly every time period offers game play from each side of the conflict. In trying to keep history pure, you have to undo mistakes you make, which may require fighting from the other perspective to “mend”.
Unleash Hell With Futuristic Weaponry
What could you have done with an automatic rifle during the Civil War, or some futuristic laser sighted pulse cannon in the trenches of WW I? There are times where you have no other choice but to bust out the big guns.
Darkest of Days is rated M for Mature and is available now for both PC and Xbox 360 and most major retailers for $39.99 and $49.99 respectively.
