Last month we had a slew of new screenshots that showed off the action in the, at the point, soon-to-be-release Dark DLC called Cult of the Dead. Today, now that the content has been released and can be downloaded on PC and Xbox 360 for $5.99, we have a whole trailer for you to watch. It shows the ridiculously-named protagonist, Eric Bane, doing his whole vamp-steath shtick.
In Cult of the Dead, you'll try to find the Book of the Dead because it can control the dead - which is a big dead for vampires - and face off against a new enemy sniper. You'll also get five new challenge maps to exercise your vamp-stealth skills.
