Teasy Now: The Darkness II Coming To PC

By Jim Rossignol on May 5th, 2011.


A teaser trailer for Digital Extremes’ sequel to Starbreeze’s 2007 comicbook man-murdering game The Darkness has been released. Although the brief trailer shows nothing of the game whatsoever, we do know that this iteration will be a little more comicbook in its presentation, apparently using techniques similar to those of Borderlands to create a lovely “graphic noir” world. That said, you can only just about make out the sort of outline effects they’re talking about in the (crappy) images that have been released so far. The game will also feature “quad-wielding”, which – although appropriate to the character – makes me do a bit of a facepalm with its FPS one-upmanship (“Well our guy has FOUR ARMS!”). Other information: it’s out in October.

Teaser below!

It doesn’t this time – 2K just announced the Darkness II, and we’re getting it!

Someone who isn’t getting it, however, is original developer Starbreeze.
