2K Games is very proud of the new quad-wielding gameplay mechanic found in The Darkness II. And with the releases of the sequel’s first gameplay trailer, it looks like they have a lot to be pround of. watch as main character Jackie Estacado holds a pistol in his left hand, a machine gun in his and uses the demonic tentactles known as The Darkness to impale a mobster with a pool cue while throwing another one down a hallway. Also be on the lookout for Jackie using The Darkness to throw a fan blade at a different mobster, naturally chopping him in half. Whoa!
The Darkness II will be on display at next week’s E3 Expo and will be released for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on October 4.
