The Darkness tears flesh again in sequel trailer

Things are not looking too good for Jackie Estacado in this first trailer for The Darkness II. Somebody thinks Jackie isn’t the best place for the Darkness to be hanging out and he’s willing to cruelly bring up memories of the anti-hero’s dead girlfriend to get what he wants. What a scoundrel.

I rather liked The Darkness, though the one thing that truly sticks out in my memories of it is a scene that would never appear in any trailer. If they can make a sequence as fascinating as watching To Kill a Mockingbird with Jenny was in the first game, I would be absolutely ecstatic. I’ll settle for ripping people apart with shadowy tentacles but I want to give Digital Extremes something to shoot for.
