First detail of The Darkness 2

Posted By | On 17th, Feb. 2011 Under Industry News, News | Follow This Author @GNReith

Having been announced last week, the first concrete details are coming in on upcoming FPS, The Darkness 2. The game will carry on the originals focus on an “emotional” story and will attempt to make protagonist Jacie more “well rounded.” The game will also contain demons who piss acid; apparently.

Though original developer Starbreeze isn’t involved in the sequel, new dev Digital Extremes promises it’s learned lessons from its involvement in both Dark Sector’s single-player game and the multiplayer element of BioShock 2.

Comic writer Paul Jenkins is set to write the game’s story once more, and the game will also supposedly now adopt a cel-shaded comic book visual aesthetic. No words on gameplay yet, though we know that the demon arm will be improved to allow scenery to be used as weapons. Nice.

Thanks to CVG for the info.

    I remember being pumped for this game and what a let down it was for me. I just thought it was so lame. This really is mind boggling, that sequels to games like this keep popping up! However, games that really deserve sequels, don’t see the light of day. a.k.a Warhawk, even though it’s rumored to be in the works (starhawk) but its just it’s been so long. It should of been out by now, if it’s indeed coming at all. Aqua Out

      Yes true but its like they’re spending so much money to make a sequel to a game that was at best mediocre. they should just take the resources and push it towards bioshock. I believe is 2K studios, because remember the original bioshock got game of the year i think, and the second was just you know “okay”. so just throw those resources to Bioshock infinity or whatever its called and make a great game! Aqua Out!!!!
