2K Games: Darkness II Video Game Announced (Tow Cow)



2K Games announced a sequel to the 2007 Darkness video game, with Darkness II.

Comic book fans are of course familiar with Top Cow's mob boss - Jackie Estacado.

According to

"The Darkness II is set two years after the events of The Darkness. Players will once again take the reigns of Jackie who has become the Don of the Franchetti crime family. Jackie is still haunted by the death of Jenny and has suppressed The Darkness within him. An attack on his awakens The Darkness and now it wants out to seek revenge."

'Comic book writer Paul Jenkins has been brought on board to pen the narrative that includes "dark humor and hardcore tenderness." Marc Silvestri, founder and CEO of Top Cow Productions and co-creator of The Darkness comics, says The Darkness II is "one of the most brutally cool games I've ever played."'

Look for Darkness II this fall on PS3, XBox and PCs.
