More Perfect Dark Details

SHADOWY PERFECT DARK ZERO DETAILS EMERGE More speculation ready to be ground up in the overworked videogame rumour mill: new reports arising from UK online news sources suggest that Rare’s sequel to Perfect Dark - currently titled Perfect Dark Zero - will be a prequel to the N64 classic, will fully support online play, and will be a launch title for Xbox 2. According to the reports, the storyline puts Joanna and her father Jack right back at the beginning of a huge conspiracy that will eventually lead to the action in the original Perfect Dark. It’s said that co-op and single-player play will be available through the story mode, as well as an interesting new ’anti-co-op’ mode that casts you as Joanna, while your mate plays as her nemesis. Each player’s actions will affect the other player, and presumably there would be a huge showdown at the end of the game. All the usual sequel guff is mentioned, including new gadgets, new weapons and new vehicles. But it’s what’s suggested will be in the multiplayer component of Perfect Dark Zero where the biggest additions are seen. The kind of online support pioneered by Halo 2 (leaderboards, clans, tournaments and so on) is promised by these reports, but more interesting than that is that it’s alleged that Zero will allow more players to compete simultaneously than ever seen before on a console. Microsoft was unavailable for comment on these rumours at the time of writing. It’s widely hoped that Perfect Dark Zero will show its face at E3 next month (and if these latest rumours are true, that would be as an Xbox 2 title - which wouldn’t actually be a massive surprise really), and should it be present we can guarantee you we’ll be battling our way to the front of the queue to bring you all the hot info.
