The release date for The Darkness II creeps closer, and the demo for the game is now available on Xbox Live, PC and PS3. 2K Games has just released a brand new trailer showcasing all the blood-dripping execution styles that can be carried out with your character’s Demon Arms!
From the Press Release
Inspired by the supernatural horror comic book series created by Top Cow Productions, Inc., and developed by Digital Extremes, The Darkness II tells the next chapter in the story of Jackie Estacado, head of a New York crime family and wielder of the ancient force of chaos known as the Darkness. The demo of The Darkness II places gamers into the role of Jackie as he battles his way through hordes of enemies hell-bent on claiming the power of the Darkness for themselves. With this demo, gamers will get a taste of the violent power of the demonic abilities at Jackie’s disposal as he faces off against the ancient Brotherhood in the single-player campaign.
The Darkness II is the sequel to the hit 2007 title The Darkness and brings a unique new combat mechanic through Quad-Wielding™, which allows players to slash, grab and throw objects and enemies with two Demon Arms while simultaneously firing two weapons. The game is layered with thematic elements of dark versus light, steeped in deep and twisted storytelling and drenched in stylistic violence which is brought to life through the hand-painted graphic noir art style, true to its comic book origins.
The Darkness II will be available in North America for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PS3™ and Games for Windows® on February 7, 2012, and internationally on February 10, 2012. The Darkness II is rated M for Mature by the ESRB.
