We have some pretty exciting news now for those of you that are waiting for The Darkness’ much-anticipated sequel The Darkness II to arrive, as we’ve just heard that a brand new trailer and release date has recently been revealed. However, it looks like you still have a fair few months until release.
According to a recent article by Oliver over at el33tonline.com, the quad-wielding first-person shooter is due for release on October 4th in North America, while everywhere else will have to wait until October 7th. The Darkness II will be available for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
As 2K Games mentions, The Darkness II comes with Quad-Wielding gameplay, which enables players to fire two weapons while simultaneously using the two destructive ‘Demon Arms’ to grab, slash and throw objects around. The publisher has also promised dark versus light gameplay.
The upcoming game sees players stepping again into the shoes of Jackie Estacado, who has tried coping with the death of his girlfriend by bottling up his supernatural power. However, an unprovoked and sudden attack on Jackie’s life opens the door for the Darkness to come back out.
