The Darkness II, sequel to the 2007 original reviewed here, has been officially dated. Gamers will get to step back into the shoes of Jackie Estacado and his ever-deadly demonic companion this fall when The Darkness II launches for the 360, PC, and PS3 on October 4. Readers unfamiliar with Jackie and his relationship with The Darkness, which gives him access to sentient Demon Arms, can check out the new trailer that recently launched at the official site.
It’s been two years since Jackie Estacado, now the Don of the Estacado crime family, used Darkness to kill the men responsible for his girlfriend’s murder. Jackie continues to have haunting visions of his beloved Jenny since her death. He’s tried to cope by bottling up his supernatural power, and now Darkness wants out. A sudden, unprovoked attack on Jackie’s life heralds the start of a full-scale mob war, which has clearly been orchestrated by some outside force. The botched attempt opens the door for Darkness to reemerge, and sets Jackie on a journey to hell and worse, as he unravels the mystery behind the attack and the motivations of Darkness itself.
