The Darkness 2
It’s been just over 4 years since we first had the opportunity to live the tragic life of Jackie Estacado. We, quite literally, went to hell and back with Top Cow Production’s 2007 critically acclaimed release. Now, Jackie’s back and he’s more powerful than ever. Where he may have started as a patsy he’s achieved the power of a New York crime family don while wielding an ancient force of chaos and death.
Slated for a relatively early 2012 release, Top Cow is looking to bring The Darkness back and, from what I’ve seen, it’s looking more destructive and brutal than ever. Still tormented by the murder of his true love, Jenny, and constantly fighting to maintain control over the demons that possess his very soul, The Darkness is set to re-emerge with a vengeance.
Here are some of the latest highlights and images we’ll be eagerly awaiting:
Slash, grab, and throw objects and enemies with the Demon Arms while simultaneously firing two weapons, adding a new dimension to the FPS category.
HARNESS AN UNSTOPPABLE POWER
Master the Demon Arms and summon the powers of The Darkness for even more explosive gameplay.
KILL THE LIGHTS
The vicious powers of The Darkness manifest only in the shadows so use the environment to your advantage and watch out for enemies who will use light as a weapon.
INTENSE AND PERSONAL JOURNEY
Experience a dark, twisted and gripping story written exclusively for the game by acclaimed comic book author Paul Jenkins whose credits also include The Incredible Hulk, Wolverine, and the original The Darkness game.
DISTINCTIVE GRAPHIC-NOIR STYLE
Graphic novel shading and color combined with the dramatic lighting of film noir pays tribute to the source material and brings the pages of the comic series to life. Inspired by the popular comic book series created by Top Cow.
