One of many things you can expect at San Diego Comic Con is a new Spore game. Maxis plans to reveal it at an event on July 24th.

"Maxis Studio (The Sims and Spore video games) has just announced their next project, a brand new, Sci-Fi Action-RPG based on the DNA of Spore," reads the event's listing on SDCC's programming schedule. "Join key leads from the dev team, Thomas Vu, Paul Sottosanti and Lauren McHugh, for the first game reveal to the public!"

The rumor is that this new game is entitled Darkspore. Alleged pictures and details of the game are floating around the Spore forums. The Darkspore are an evil alien race that wants to take over the galaxy and it's the player's job to stop them. The URL Darkspore.com currently leads back to the standard Spore website.

In May, EA revealed that their next Spore title would be released between January 1st and March 31st of 2011. They had also stated that it would be a PC game.
