Metal: Hellsinger is a rhythm based first person shooter where you fight your way through hell. Slaying to the beat of the music to claim your glory.
Darkborn is first and foremost a game about being a monster. Playing it is about experiencing that monstrous quality – in first person combat, in novel abilities and movement, and even in enemy reactions to you.
Darkborn is not traditional in that humans are murderous, cruel enemies bent on your extinction. You yourself are an innocent caught up in a much larger conflict between Powers, the specifics of which become clearer in the course of the game. It’s a classic revenge story, but also a mystery: what happened to the world and your people? Can they be saved?
