About Dark Sector

About this game

Fight off a viral attack with violence in Dark Sector from Digital Extremes.

Intriguing Narrative

Dark Sector offers an adrenaline-fueled gaming experience, immersing players in the role of Hayden Tenno, a covert operative embarking on a hazardous mission in a city on the brink of devastation. Hayden becomes infected by the Technocyte Virus, a ruthless bio-weapon turning its victims into mindless killers. Miraculously, Hayden survives and finds himself imbued with powerful, unique abilities.

Evolution Powers

The game showcases an all-new, original action-shooter concept. Players will witness Hayden's transformation as he combats the Technocyte Virus consuming his body and mind. Hayden's remarkable superhuman abilities include a deadly blade, the glaive, which grows from his arm. As the game progresses, these abilities evolve, enhancing their potency and diversifying gameplay.

Competitive Multiplayer Mode

Dark Sector prioritises player immersion, with a 'no HUD' design, intuitive controls, and an over-the-shoulder third-person viewpoint. The innovative multiplayer feature extends the game's excitement, allowing players to apply the skills honed in the single-player game to competitive scenarios.

Not worth the money, too buggy

Awful from start to finish
Verified purchase
The game looked really cool when I saw game play footage. However playing it was another story. The game was buggy, there were no trainers that worked which would have helped since even moving around was hard and getting killed was really easy since it was very hard to maneuver because of the buggy everything. I was liking the story but it’s not worth the hassle
