The Darkness II has similar game play as the first game, but in the sequel there is a new tactic called "quad wielding". It allows lead character Jackie to use his darkness powers while at the same time use firearms. There is more focus on the aspect of darklings, with there now being only one primary darkling which will hold greater importance and will be more involved in the storyline. It has been revealed that it will be able to interact with the environment by using items such as a workers drill to attack and torture your enemies and it will also be able to use standard weaponry such as pistols to attack or threaten them. Jackie can use the environment for help and can do actions such as use car doors as shields and parking meters to impale things. Unlike in the first game, you will be able to use your weaponry and darkness abilities in public places.

Apologies for the audio portion. The settings always seem to get fucked. Listen closely for my takes on The Darkness II demo. This was captured from the Live Stream. Thanks for watching.

The Darkness II is a First Person Shooter where you also control two monsters with shoulder buttons. The graphics are similar to Borderlands but just a little sharper. Very typical corridor shooter here. There isn't much time in the demo to do anything. Half of it is buried in cut-scenes you can't skip. The demo last just over 30 mins for me. I'm not hype for this game at all. I didn't play The Darkness when it was released years ago and I have no desire to play this one.

A crowded October gets some much needed space...

In a move that shouldn't be too surprising considering all the mega releases coming this Fall, Take-Two Interactive has shifted the release date for The Darkness II from October 4 of this year to Feburary 7 of next year.

2K Games announced today that The Darkness(TM) II, for all previously announced video game consoles and PC, is now planned for release on February 7, 2012 in North America and February 10, 2012 internationally. Currently in development with Digital Extremes and based on the supernatural horror comic book series created by Top Cow Productions, Inc., The Darkness II delivers a brutal and personal narrative as gamers take control of Jackie Estacado, head of a New York crime family and wielder of an ancient and ruthless force of chaos and destruction known as the Darkness.
