News – The Darkness 2 Announced

The Darkness 2 has long been rumoured to be in development and finally 2K Games has made it official.

This time around it’s developed by Digital Extremes (developer of Pariah and more recently Dark Sector) and takes place two years after the events of the Starbreeze developed original game. In the previous game Jackie Estacado got brutal revenge on the murderers of his girlfriend, Jenny. He’s now the Don of the Franchetti crime family and is pulled into a mob war, which is as good a reason as any to chomp on some hearts.

It follows the same fomula that made the original such a unique treat. So there’s an emphasis on story, whilst the same combination of  gunplay and supernatural abilities (I love those tentacles) can be used to see your enemies off.

The Darkness 2 is due in the autumn.
