2K Games have released a new video for their upcoming title The Darkness II
. The trailer features a character named Johny Powell who provides the narrative explaining the origin of The Darkness, and how it came to take over the life of Jackie Estacado.
Through the narrative we are given a brief synopsis of the story and we get to see how the gameplay appears on screen. The clip is cleverly done, and running at over 3 minutes it covers a fair bit of ground.
The Darkness II
is currently under development by Digital Extremes, and will be published by 2K Games with a release date set for February 7th, 2012 in the US, and February 10th for all other regions.
