Remember “The Darkness 1”? The comic based first person shooter game that was released in 2007? Oh boy, I loved the storyline all the way to the end. The entire idea of pitching the main character in a plethora of family feuds, deception, desperation and creepy back allies, looked so invigorating.
You played the role of Jackie Estacado, an upcoming Mafioso who was destined to avenge the murder of his girlfriend. The first installment further led you to confront a full scale war against mobsters. Well, guess what? Your powers, the monstrosity and the gun slinging action is back again. 2K Games just announced the release of “The Darkness 2” in Fall 2011. That’s a whole lot of waiting but I’m definitely going to let my guts quiver in excitement until then.
By the way, so far the developers have only mentioned Xbox 360 as the suitable platform for Darkness 2. I wonder if it’s going to be released for the PS3 or the PC. Right now, I don’t have a trailer for you, but feel free to take a gander at the very first screenshot. It says “Welcome to Little Italy”.
