The success of the gothic first person shooter, The Darkness, has made the upcoming sequel to the game, The Darkness II, a fairly hotly anticipated one. While both games share much of the same gameplay, featuring the main character, Jackie Estacado using his supernatural powers along with his tentacle-like arms and his sharp-shooting, the sequel will also feature a new quad-wielding ability. 2K Games has released a new trailer which gives us a glimpse of this ability in action.
The first release news we brought our readers about the sequel suggested an October 4th release, which is today, but it was soon followed up with news that the date had been pushed back until 2012. The only thing fans are able to enjoy today is the trailer courtesy of CVG, which can be viewed below. It shows Jackie’s ability to use his creature-like arms to nibble away at enemies, throw them about and even grab parking meters and car doors and use them as weapons at the same time as he’s firing two guns.
The result of this ability makes for some very gruesome action. Enemies are decapitated, hurled up into the air and split, clean in half or are simply grabbed off the ground and are hit or pounded back into the ground so hard that they explode into a cloud of blood. These tentacles can also rip off individual limbs if the players are feeling sadistic.
If you’re interested in getting this sequel then we’re afraid you’re going to have to wait until February 10th, as this is the expected release date, unless you live in North America in which case the wait isn’t so long as they get it February 7th. Be sure to check out the trailer below for some awesome previews.
