Today, we've got some info on Dark Sector's two multi-player modes and we're not that impressed. The first mode is dubbed "infection" while the second takes on the equally viral-toned "epidemic." PS3 multi-player games can be played either on the PlayStation Network or by LAN. Unfortunately, unlike the Xbox 360 version that has all the following options, the PS3 version lacks Quick game, Custom game, and Ranked game options. Why? Beats us.

As for individual mode details, infection is basically a game of survival where one player is the game's protagonist, Hayden, while the others are Lasrian soldiers hunting him down. When Hayden is taken out, the soldier who dealt the lethal blow takes Hayden's place as the "infected" target for the next round. Epidemic is the standard team vs. team war, but each team has a leader (represented by Hayden) that must be taken out to end rounds.

In both modes, players who play as Hayden have access to all his Evolution Powers, Glaive, and elemental powers. Both modes are also playable on five maps and can support up to ten players. Friendly fire is not allowed in either mode. Now how about the prospect of future DLC? Nothing mentioned, but we'd expect there should be a lot because these modes really need more content in order to compete with other games and their offerings.
