2K Games has officially announced a sequel to the 2007 hit The Darkness. It’ll be coming to the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in Fall 2011. Digital Extremes shall be its developer.
The sequel will boast a “hand-painted art graphic noir” visual style, a “ruthless” story and “quad-wielding combat,” which sounds pretty damn awesome, at least on paper.
Check below for plot details. Exciting news!
It’s been two years since Jackie Estacado, now the 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 reemerge, 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.
