The Darkness II XBOX 360 CoverBased on the comic book series created by Top Cow, The Darkness II is the sequel to the critically-acclaimed 2007 release, The Darkness, and features an original story by acclaimed comic writer Paul Jenkins (The Incredible Hulk, Wolverine and Hellblazer).

It's been two years since Jackie Estacado, now Don of the Franchetti crime family, used The Darkness to kill the men responsible for his girlfriend’s murder. He's been unable to shake the memory of Jenny’s death since bottling up his supernatural power and now The Darkness wants out.

A sudden, unprovoked attack on Jackie's life heralds the start of a full-scale mob war which has clearly been orchestrated by some outside force. The botched attempt opens the door for The Darkness to re-emerge, and sets Jackie on a journey to hell and worse as he unravels the mystery behind the attack and the motivations of The Darkness itself.

Boasting a distinctive graphic-noir style and dramatic film lightening this is shaping up to be the most anticipated gaming release of 2012.

It will be in stores on February 10th on the PlayStation 3, XBOX 360 and PC DVD Rom formats.

Look out for more information on The Darkness II and some rather stunning screen shots over the next few days on this very site.
