New ‘previously on’ Darkness II trailer
The Darkness II is releasing February of next year, and to ensure gamers are caught up with what’s previously happened in the series, a new trailer has been released. Providing a recap of the events of the previous game (so yes – there are massive spoilers for those of you who haven’t played the first game) the trailer also shows off some impressive gameplay, in addition to illustrating the new ‘graphic noir’ style (read: dramatic graphic novel shading). Check it out below.
And from the game’s official website:
The Darkness II is the sequel to the critically acclaimed 2007 release The Darkness. Inspired by the popular comic book series produced by Top Cow Productions, Inc., The Darkness II is an intense first person shooter that puts you in the role of Jackie Estacado, don of a New York crime family and wielder of an ancient force of chaos known as The Darkness.
It’s been two years since Jackie used his power to kill the men responsible for his girlfriend’s murder. He’s been unable to shake the memory of Jenny’s death since bottling up The Darkness and now it wants out. A botched attempt on Jackie’s life opens the door for The Darkness to reemerge, and sets Jackie on a brutal and personal journey as he unravels the mystery behind the attack and the motives of The Darkness.
I quite enjoyed playing through the first Darkness game (save the horrid World War I inspired trench warfare parts) so I’ll be interested to see just how the sequel plays. Any other fans out there? Let us know in the comments below.
