Based on the Top Cow comic of the same name, The Darkness was a unique first person shooter from the makers of the most excellent Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay. As a member of the Italian mob, Jackie Estacado inherited supernatural powers on his 21st birthday in the form of two demon arms growing out from his back and a bunch of evil minions who like all well behaved minions, carried out his every order.

The sequel dubbed The Darkness II will take place nearly two years after the events of the first game and will weave a violent tale through a “hand-painted graphic noir technique that stays true to its comic book origins”. The reigns of development have been passed over to Digital Extremes, makers of the underrated Dark Sector who will bring in a bunch of gameplay tweaks as well, one of which is quad wielding (demon hands gotta get strapped too).

The Darkness II will release sometime this year for the Xbox360, PS3 and PC.
