The launch trailer for The Darkness II has arrived online from 2K Games. The game hits store selves on February 7 (Feb. 10 Internationally) for the usual box and stations as well as the PC. The video is pretty cool, the gun graphics are nice with those scrolled barrels, one would think that after spending all that time in closeups on the guns that maybe there would be a graphic of the guns being reloaded. Maybe the gun clips are really interdimensional black holes that hold unlimited ammo.
That’s just one of my video game pet peeves, if you shoot it . . . you gotta reload it.
The game is described as:
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.The Darkness II is the sequel to the million unit-selling 2007 title, The Darkness, and brings a unique new combat mechanic through Quad-Wielding, which will allow players to slash, grab, and throw objects and enemies with two Demon Arms while simultaneously firing two weapons. The game is layered with thematic elements of dark versus light, steeped in deep and twisted storytelling, and maintains the stylistic violence visualized through a hand-painted graphic noir technique, true to its comic book origins.
