The Darkness II is a first person shooter video game that was first released in 2012. It is the sequel to The Darkness. The game is set two years after the events of the first game in the series. Players assume the role of different characters throughout the game. At the beginning of the game, players assume the role of Jackie Estacado, Don of the Franchetti crime family. He has a demon soul called The Darkness that allows the character to create black holes and move like a shadow to stalk enemies.
The game has a mode called Vendettas. In this game mode, players take the role of one of the four hitmen available in the game. Each of the hitmen has different characteristics and powers. While controlling a hitman, players must do missions for Jackie Estacado. This game mode’s campaign takes place at the same time as the game’s main campaign. The characters’ weapons and Darkness powers can be upgraded, too.
The Darkness II offers new moves for the characters. One of them is the anaconda. This allows the character to impale the foes with the power of The Darkness. Another added feature in the game is wielding, which allows users to use weapons and demon arms simultaneously. This results in powerful attack combinations.
