EA has announced that Darkspore will take a little longer than expected to fully evolve into a retail-ready experience. According to a post on the game's official forum, Darkspore has been delayed until April 26 in North America (and April 28 in Europe).

The game had previously been slated to land on the top of the food chain on March 29.

The forum post also revealed that an open beta for the upcoming Spore spin-off will arrive "for everyone" sometime in April. Late last year, EA began accepting users for a closed beta of Darkspore.

For more details on the title, check back on our single- and multiplayer previews of the game.

      Great news actually, if they fix the stuff we want fixed the game could be really good.

      I look forward to the changes, and since I am in beta I guess I will.

      Actually shocked it was not shoveled out, good on you EA \m/

        If it's half as entertaining as torchlight I'll be satisfied, given the online co-op.

        It looks and sounds it. Can't see it selling well at all.

      I'm on the beta too. Its not a bad game...I don't know if its a 59.99 title...but its good so far. There are some things that need fixing and changing...but they seem pretty responsive to it. I'm hoping the delay is for the best

      Been in the beta quite a bit.

      Its not bad its not worth close to the price they are selling it for the maps are fairly bland one or two looks ok but the rest seem rushed.

      Mission wise there all the same so far do 3-4 zones per map then fight a boss that dull boring and all the same but stupidly easy risk of death or loss is more or less zero unless you lag out for 5mins with a room of mobs on you.

      Been able to change the heros looks is nice but its quite tricky to do any thing good some times the buttons you drag are inside the hero so you can not alter them.

      Its not bad just quite boring after a fairly short time.
