Maxis has announced its follow-up to Spore, Darkspore. Set to ship in February 2011, Darkspore is a sci-fi action role-playing game inspired by Spore’s creature editor that will feature a single-player campaign, four-player co-op, and online versus.
Players will choose one of five genetic hero types in one of three unique classes to fight the mutated forces of Darkspore. Battling across alien worlds, players will collect body parts and armor to tweak their character. Tens of thousands of collectible pieces can be found to upgrade and customize heroes, as well as unlock new combat abilities and weapons.
