The Darkness 2 E3 trailer employs ultraviolence

In the competition for the title of E3 2011's Most Violent Violence, so far Ninja Gaiden 3 and The Darkness II are well out in the lead. The E3 trailer for Digital Extremes' follow-up to Starbreeze's supernatural shooter makes an excellent case, with people being ripped in two, cut in half, crucified, impaled with pool cues hurled by demon tentacles, and goodness knows what else.

You'll also find fine demonstrations of The Darkness II's mixed dual-wielding system, and the so-called "quad-wielding" you get when demon tentacles are thrown into the mix too. Plus, of course, there's more splendid growling from Mike Patton, the voice of The Darkness itself. Read more »

The Darkness 2 Announced for Fall

There's been talk of a sequel to supernatural shooter The Darkness for some time and now it's as official as official can be. Today, publisher 2K Games formally announced The Darkness II, slated for release this fall on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and, unlike the original, PC too.

The announcement promises "deep and twisted storytelling, "stylistic violence" and a new "hand-painted graphic noir" visual style, which you can see in the solitary screenshot above. And yes, you will still be able to hold two guns while swinging your evil tentacles, a feature which 2K calls "quad-wielding." Read more »

"It's a shame the first game never made it the PC. And by the looks of it it never will."
