New The Darkness II Trailer Rips it Up

2K has released a new trailer for The Darkness II, showing some of the gory finishing moves you can pull off in the game. The name of the vid, "Torn Apart," should give some clue as to the contents.

Playing as The Darkness frontman, Jackie Estacado, you can do all kinds of disgusting things to your victims. Don't be fooled by nice names like Daisy Pop, these executions are nasty and frequently include tearing important things like heads off. Snake tentacle arm things have their uses, y'know.

Check out all the blood and screaming in the trailer below. The Darkness is out in the US on Feb 7th and Europe on Feb 10th.

I am playing the first Darkness right now, and it has held up pretty well.

Right, you just reminded me why this game is not as good as first one. Aside from those weird graphics (which are pretty, but just don't feel right for the game named Darkness, especially after first game...) seeing those names for different kills pop up a la Bulletstorm is sort of annoying and imersion breaking... Wish this was optional or at least included as different mode...

Will still get it, but way later this year

Cool, but I'm not sure if this game will hold up to the first. The first never really called for a sequel, and ended SPOILER POSSIBLY with the implication that the entire game was a groundhog day like loop, where Jackie keeps going over the memory of how he ruined his soul by ignoring any chance for forgiveness and redemption and how lost his girlfriend due to his own faults, and that the rest of his life was controlled by the Darkness. I never really saw why a sequel was needed.

It will be interesting to see what they've done with the game. Gameplay looks fun.

I too preferred the realistic look of the first to the wacky arcade look of the second.. The game is still fun as hell though!

Sucks that they took out up close gun executions from the first game. They were awesome. Theese new ones are ok but lack variety and are just random.

I agree with #8...those up close executions are fun as hell. I am about 60% through the first one right now, and it is awesome. Too many f*cking load times though.

I played the demo, and i gotta say, I love it! It is a lot better than the first one. Although, i haven't played the first one in 3 years.
