The Darkness II Dampens the Mood with Gameplay Trailer

June 2, 2011 Written by Cameron Teague

2k Games has been nice enough to scare us all to death by releasing the first official gameplay trailer for The Darkness II. If you are a person who can’t take a little blood and might be prone to passing out, I don’t think you should read beyond this point; the trailer just might rock your world in the wrong way.

The Darkness II takes place two years after the events of the first game and still involves Jackie Estacado, who has now become the Don of the Franchetti crime family. The game will be very similar to the first with a few differences such as being about to quad wield weapons and darkness powers at the same time. Players will also find an interesting twist where they will become weaker when in the light, leading you to try to fight from the shadows.

The Darkness II is set for release later this year on the PlayStation 3 and 360, but do you have what it takes to not lose yourself to darkness?
