On Xbox LIVE, PSN And Steam
Despite some initial reservations, we're quickly warming to The Darkness 2, what with its quad-wielding chaos and wonderfully original art style. We're a little sad to see Starbreeze jump ship - although at least it was for this - but Digital Extremes appear to have truly tapped in to what makes Jackie Estacado and his demonic passenger work, and the results speak for themselves.
Set for release later this year, publisher 2K Games has announced a demo for The Darkness 2 is due by the middle of next week. It launches first on Xbox LIVE on Tuesday the 17th for Gold subscribers, before Silver members, American PSN users and Steam subscribers can download it the next week, on Tuesday the 24th. Finally, PSN users in Europe and Asia/Pacific can get their hands on it the following day, Wednesday the 25th. Expect our verdict on the demo very soon. [2K Games]
