was released in July
this year, but the response to the title has been fairly average. Publisher Kalypso Media will be hopeful that the first piece of DLC for the game will garner better ratings from the gaming community.
"Cult of the Dead" sees Eric Bane, Dark
's main protagonist, encountering more evil enemies after dealing with the M17 vampire hunters from the game's main story. Eric Bane must search for the Book of the Dead because it "grants its owner the power to control death and its creatures". This item has potential implications for all creatures within the game, as well as Eric's opportunity to learn more about his kind.
The "Cult of the Dead" DLC will add the following features to the stealthy, action-adventure:
- Includes a brand new mission which challenges you to find the mysterious ‘Book of the Dead’
- Test your stealth and vampiric skills with five new maps in challenge mode
- New opponent: the deadly sniper
- New Boss: the Cultist
Kalypso Media has confirmed that the new DLC will arrive on December 5th for PC, but the Xbox 360 version is slated to release at "a later date".
