Today 2K spilled the beans on when The Darkness II will drop, the next installment in what has turned out to be a cult classic horror franchise. For those of you that aren’t quite familiar with The Darkness franchise, let’s recap.
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. As you can imagine its going to get weird, really weird.
The Darkness II hits stores October 4th in North America. Now check the debut trailer.
