The Darkness 2 Release Date

2K Games has finally given us a release date for The Darkness 2 game: October 4, 2011. Hey, that’s this year! If you haven’t played the first game, I highly recommend it.

The new title is said to have similar game play as the first game, but includes a new tactic called “quad wielding,” which allows Jackie (the main character) to use the darkness powers at the same time as firearms (cool!). The story will take place two years after the first game. Jackie is now the Don of the Franchetti crime family. However, he is still haunted by thoughts of his dead girlfriend, Jenny. A sudden attack on Jackie starts a full-scale mob war, which has been orchestrated by some outside force. That attempt reawakens the Darkness, sending Jackie to hell and back.

Sounds good to me!

I previously posted this preview from the game. It is also available for pre-purchase at Amazon.com.

The Darkness 2 will be released on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
