2K Games has nailed down a proper release date for The Darkness II, which had been previously slated for an October 2011 launch in North America and Europe. That date has now shifted into early next year, delaying the game by four months.

Featuring the return of Jackie Estacado, who is now the Don of the family, you'll get to quad-wield with the aid of the darkness itself, using the tentacles to perform executions and throw objects at enemies while shooting with both hands. You'll also have the aid of the little darkling minion, who'll aid Jackie at various junctures.

For the lowdown on The Darkness II, check out our E3 preview. 2K and Digital Extremes will be releasing The Darkness II on February 7th, 2012 in North America and February 10th, 2012 in Europe.

I enjoyed the first one when I picked it up for 20ish bucks way back then might be good if they nailed down some things and added more see how it looks most likely not a must have for me.

There were so many games releasing this year that I was going to pass on this because of the October 2011 release date. Really glad it's getting delayed, as I'll be sure to pick it up then.

@1 There's a gameplay trailer on PSN and the 'net... it has a cell-shaded look to it, similar to Borderlands but much more crisp.
