A few days ago we heard that Mike Patton would be returning to voice The Darkness in the game The Darkness II. Then we almost immediately found out that it was not official. HOWEVER, after not really doubting its happening, turns out the rumor is confirmed. Mike Patton will reprise his roll. “It feels really good to be the bad guy, and The Darkness is as bad as it gets,” said Mike Patton. “I’ve read through the script and Jackie is going to be a brutally tortured soul. I’m looking forward to making his life a living hell.”
YES! That sounds promising. So does this. “The story behind The Darkness II wouldn’t be complete or authentic without the character of The Darkness,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “Mike Patton brings a completely unique perspective to the role which is essential in creating the world of The Darkness.” Chris Harmann from 2K is a great man. He knows games, and knows what players want. Even better, the game has coined the term “quad wielding gameplay”. What does that mean? I’ll fuckin tell you what it means. You can throw enemies, throw things at enemies (with your demon tentacles), shoot guns, cut bitches, all at the same time. Having 2 regular arms AND demon arms really opens up tons of doors that lead to so many awesome ass kicking possibilities.
The Darkness II is looking at a release later this year on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.
