Having already confirmed that there will indeed be a sequel to the game The Darkness, we can now bring you news of what you can expect from The Darkness II, thanks to an article about a preview over at Gaming Update.
The gameplay of the sequel will be based similar to that of the first. It’s a FPS style where you will play Jackie Estacado again. It is set two years after the events in the first game and according to the article by CM Boots-Faubert the demo throws you straight into the action with the opening scene seeing Jackie being crucified by ‘the crippled man,’ a character that doesn’t yet have a name.
Gameplay will also allow the use of a mixture of weapons and also using the demon arms that your character has. Weapons include the Winchester pump shotgun, mini-Uzi and the 1911 Colt .45, while the arms can be used to impale enemies with pipes and throw objects at them.
