You can mow down roman soldiers with an assault rifle in Darkest of Days. If that doesn't grab your attention, what will? Last time, we talked about the game's box art, which has a volcano on it. It's hard to say if its inclusion on the cover is due to Pompeii being a destination in Darkest of Days or because "it looked cool."
The latest news on Darkest of Days comes in the form of a video, which puts the game's weird assortment of weapons on display. As you can see in the header image, this information is truly vital to your survival.
Above all, I am happy to see the game not taking itself too seriously. Quite frankly, Darkest of Days looks like total bargain bin fodder, but I don't mean it as an insult, at least not yet. Earth Defense Force 2017. Need I say more?
