Sharpen your stake: new Dracula 3 screens come to light

Dracula 3 was announced last year, but it seems it mostly flew under the radar (perhaps due to the waning popularity of PC games that are not World of Warcraft.) I still enjoy gaming on my PC when there are games available, not to mention I’m a sucker for some good old fashioned horror, so I was very pleased to see some crisp new screenshots pop up for this title. I threw the old screens in for good measure, since I couldn’t find a trace of the game in the Dtoid library.

Here’s a snippet about the latest installment in the series:

Mgr Arno Moriani, the “devil’s advocate”, is carrying out a canonization process, investigating in the interwar years a potential candidate for beatification in Transylvania. His investigation is quickly wrapped up. The strange stigmata on the corpse are not the hallmark of some divine power. In fact, the villagers see it as the “mark” of Count Dracula. The bishop decides to carry out his own investigation to determine once and for all whether the vampire truly exists. But the reality is deceiving. Fiction is powerful. Doubts arise. And doubt begets fear…

I actually forgot that this game was part of a series, since the last installment was way back in 2000 (Dracula 2: The Last Sanctuary.) Dracula: The Resurrection was the first title in the series, launched back in 1999. I could go back in time and play those games, but I have to admit I’d rather wait for the new hotness. Dracula 3 is slated to come out around Christmas in 2008, so keep your garlic at the ready.
