Stealth role-playing game DARK hits the 360 and PC on July 18. Protagonist Eric Bane may be a powerful vampire, but players have the option to stealth through levels and overcome obstacles whilst avoiding straight combat.

If a fight does break out, Bane has an arsenal of special abilities at his disposal, which must be replenished in the traditional vampiric way--by drinking blood.

Fans of the Arcadia series will be keen for Arcania: The Complete Tale, a re-release of fantasy role-playing game Arcania: Gothic 4 and its follow-up expansion, Arcania: Fall of Setarrif.

Arcania: Gothic 4 received a mixed reaction in GameSpot's review, praised for “being a straightforward, easy-to-play hack-and-slash RPG”, but criticised for its story and poorly translated dialogue.
