What is Black Death?

Black Death is a new survival horror from Darkworks.
Black Death is the personification of the fear generated by the recent pandemics and the mistrust which has been associated to their supposed origins (natural apocalypse, scientific, industrial, or military ones… or else… ).

Our goal with Black Death is to go one step further by focusing the game on three essential elements: speed, fluidity and freedom of action, to offer the player a sensation of freedom and the possibility to create his own arsenal.


Today, The American North East coast, a city is suddenly hit by a massive cloud of smoke.

Mysterious swirls of this black smoke appear and infect everybody.

This new disease is spreading all over the city making it a place full of sick people sunk into a comatose state.

As they mutate into strange creatures with various powers and group behaviours, they start to become violent and invade the whole city.

The player is a survivor who will try to stay alive and wipe out this scourge from the city.
