The Darkness II launch trailer

The Darkness II is the sequel to the fairly popular original The Darkness from 2007. The game brings back Jackie Estacado as protagonist, now obsessed with the death of his girlfriend and a mafia don. After an assassination attempt he finds himself trying to uncover the powers that want him dead and figure out ‘The Darkness’. 

The gameplay should be similar from the first game. One of the new features is something called “quad wielding” which lets players manipulate guns and the darkness powers at the same time. If you’re interested in getting a feel for the game a demo was released on Tuesday. 

The Darkness II will be out for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC on February 7.
