The game follows the story of Eric Bane, a newly turned vampire suffering from amnesia. The gameplay of Dark is based on stealth combat. Eric has many supernatural vampiric ‘skills’ at his disposal; he can use Shadow Leap to quickly teleport to different areas and to perform stealth finishers, make himself temporarily invisible, see in the dark and slow down time. Eric learns that his transformation is not complete and that, if he does not drink the blood of his sire, he will mutate into a mindless ghoul. He can drink blood from his enemies to restore his health and blood points.
