Darkness II Coming Fall 2011

2K Games has officially announced The Darkness II for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. The sequel to The Darkness will be released in fall 2011 and will not be developed by Starbreeze Studios this time around. Instead, the game is being developed by Digital Extremes, the team responsible for Dark Sector and the PS3 port of BioShock.

The Darkness II takes place two years after the events of the first game. Jackie Estacado, who is now a mob boss, hasn’t been using his supernatural powers since he avenged his girlfriend’s murder. After an unprovoked attack on his life, a mob war breaks out and the powers of The Darkness are once again unleashed.

The game will feature “Quad-Wielding” gameplay mechanics that will allow players to use their Demon Arms to decimate enemies while simultaneously blasting them with both weapons in hand. Comic book writer Paul Jenkins will be providing a narrative that promises to “weave dark humor with hardcore tenderness.”

Darkness was one of my favorite games at the beginning of this generation, I just hope Digital Extremes do this great game justice.
