2K Games has announced that The Darkness II will be released in the UK and Europe on October 7th. It will arrive in North America on October 4th.
The game is a sequel to 2K’s 2007 release which looked to mix up the traditional FPS formula with the addition of ‘Darkness’ – a mystical force twinned with protagonist Jackie Estacado.
This is taken a step further in the new game with the idea of ‘Quad Wielding’, which gives players control of four weapons – one regular weapon in each hand and a pair of Demon Arms, the manifest of Darkness.
The Darkness II is due out on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
