2K Games just released an all-new ‘What Is The Darkness?’ video trailer for The Darkness II, which highlights the origins of the Darkness entity, as well as Jackie Estacado’s relationship with that demon throughout the video game series. This gritty video introduces a new character in The Darkness II – Johnny Powell. He explains The Darkness’ beginnings, how the Darkness has helped to establish Jackie’s role as the Don of the Estacado family, his connection to past girlfriend Jenny and showcasing the unique Quad-Wielding, combat mechanic that allows gamers to simultaneously dual-wield two guns, and two Demon Arms during battle. Too bad this game got pushed into 2012, but hopefully its worth the wait.
Let me be clear, I watch a lot of trailers for video games but this is one of those very rare and very entertaining ones that you might watch a couple of times. Now sure it has tons of decapitation and killing in it which is impressive in its own right, but it’s just downright interesting to learn how Jackie ended up where he is today. He tried to get out, but they just keep pulling him back in lol.
