Through the game we will "visit" five planets: Cryos, Zelem's Nexus, Verdanth, Infinity and Nocturna, and we already know have information about cryos and zelem's that can be seen on this page: enjoy the information!!!

Classes and Heros

        Darkspore has three classes: Sentinel, Ravager and Tempest. These classes mainly define your role on the battlefield. Sentinels are generally tanks and are there to be the front line in the attack, absorbing most of the damage. Ravagers are quick, stealthy attackers that have high damage output but are also more fragile than Sentinels. Tempests are generally in the rear of the battle with their ranged & support abilities.

        Our archetypes break down into five "Genesis" types: Plasma, Bio, Quantum, Necro and Cyber. The Genesis types define the kind of abilities that each hero or enemy creature will have. Plasma creatures have high damage, AoE energy attack abilities such as Fireballs and Plasma Columns. The healing and crowd control abilities are mainly covered by the Bio type creatures. Our Quantum type creatures have abilities that can manipulate time and space. Necro archetypes excel with controlling & draining abilities such as Life Drain and Fear. And the Cyber archetype's abilities utilize traps and explosions.

Down here a exemple of hero that can be found in the game: (here are the list of others)
Goliath the Energy Guardian
By legend, Goliath arose from one of Infinity’s ancient technomartial orders. But Goliath had no lineage: no master, no elite ancestors, no one to protect him when he himself had been a fugitive fleeing across the poisoned wastelands.
Then he discovered a devastating weapon—the Protonic Sword.
Confronting his hunters in open combat, Goliath obliterated them all.
Thereafter, Goliath pledged to defend all fugitives and exiles, sometimes holding off or defeating hundreds of attackers without a single ally save his invincible weapon.
Honorable, brave, and compassionate, Goliath is a symbol of hope for all who crave justice.

Class: Sentinel
Genesis Type: Cyber
Planet: Infinity


Energy Slash: Devastates a target with his energy sword, reducing their regenerative abilities.
Arc Weld: Jolts an enemy with a crackling bolt of electricity that arcs to nearby foes.
Cauterize: Swings his energy sword in a cleaving attack that brutally stuns all affected foes.
Disrupt: Goliath’s weapon continually emits a powerful current that causes all targets that it touches to be vulnerable to future energy attacks.

Inicial Post on Darkspore


           Darkspore is a fast-paced, sci-fi Action-RPG in which you battle across alien worlds to save the galaxy from the mutated forces of Darkspore.
  • Fight in co-op (up to 4 players) and solo battles against hordes of Darkspore enemies and bosses. 
  • Collect an arsenal of living weapons - genetic heroes with different combat abilities - and upgrade them with tens of thousands of collectible body parts and armor. 
  • Make your heroes truly unique and deeply customized in an enhanced version of the award-winning Spore Creature Editor.
  • Pit your customized, upgraded collection of heroes in PvP arena battles against other players.
  • Destroy the infestation of Darkspore and liberate the galaxy in a unique and highly replayable sci-fi action campaign.
  • Use Creature Editing technology from Spore.

           Darkspore is set in the aftermath of a scientific experiment gone disastrously wrong. After an unstable type of super-DNA called 'Exponential DNA' escaped the lab, it created mutated hordes of Darkspore creatures who, under the leadership of a mysterious being called The Corruptor, overran the galaxy. After eons of hiding in hyper-sleep, you have been awakened by your ship with a message from a long dormant computer network: "E-DNA has been stabilized". Now you can use it as it was originally intended, to upgrade a collection of Genetic Heroes and fight back against the Darkspore.
           The goal of the fiction is to set the context for the player's role, identify the enemies, and define the unique sci-fi setting of the game. As you play through the game and encounter each new planet, you'll see a series of FMVs that tell the story of the rise of the Darkspore and the history of each planet you'll encounter.

More on Gameplay

           Darkspore has a lot of what you might expect to see in an Action-RPG. It's a PC game, with familiar mouse and keyboard-based controls, and has heroes and enemies that are organized into types and classes. But most of all, Darkspore is a game about collecting loot. You'll build a collection of Genetic Heroes that you can send into battle, and you'll collect hundreds of thousands of parts that you can use to upgrade those heroes.
           The gameplay in Darkspore is very action packed. Expect your eyes to be glued to the screen with some wild adrenalin rush moments when getting attacked by hoards of infested creatures or killing bosses. The minute to minute action will keep you engaged throughout the planet. But you can also expect many beautiful and unique planets to discover and explore.

Editor of Creatures

The Crogenitors propelled evolution forwards through ceaseless experimentation with the central chemical of life: the DNA molecule.
After generations of genetic experiments, the Crogenitors gained the powers of full mutation. Extending limbs, adding armor, and replacement of whole body parts allowed them to build the foundation of an army. An army of Genetic Heroes.
But the development of Exponential DNA (E-DNA) changed everything. E-DNA could be used to weaponize life itself…
Augment and customize your creatures in an enhanced version of the award-winning Spore Creature Editor.
  • Upgrade your creatures’ body parts, armor, and weapons to enhance their combat capabilities
  • Collect thousands of parts, each with unique stats
  • Customize your heroes to make them your own
