The CV of an Environment Artist has revealed multiple titles that are currently in development at Digital Extremes, one being Darkness 2.
Awesome! The first one completely fell under the radar of a lot of people.
I remember a year or two ago when there was a tonne of speculation about a sequel in development. I've definitely been hoping for it. The first one was pretty good. The only thing I'm wary about is the fact it's being developed at a different studio...
The first Darkness is easily one of the most overlooked gems of this generation. It was a top notch game and had a awesome story and some really cool mechanics that made it much more then your average shooter. In my opinion there should have already been a sequel out but i'll take a late sequel over no sequel at all. Just hope it gets here soon.
I've with you there , it was a great title , and the best comics book adaptation till Batman arkham asylum .
The Darkness is an AMAZING game. Finally glad to see some news about a sequel although I'm a little worried about the development studio shift. Hopefully Digital Extremes can nail it like Starbreeze did the original or even better than the original. Besides the multiplayer, there was really nothing wrong with that game at all. I cannot wait. In fact, I'm off to go play the original again.
dunno if the development studio is bad cuz maybe the ps3 version isgoing to be 720p now instead of the 576p upscaled to 1080p
@blaze I havent played the game, only the demo. The shooting mechanics didnt convinced me + the visuals on the PS3 are just decent. However I'm gonna buy it and give it a real try, off your comment.
Human flesh festers......FEED US!!! The Darkness was amazing! sure some of the gameplay was a bit clunky but the story the characters, athomspehere, design, voice acting & immersion was incredible! i loved that game so dark and gritty story but im skeptical if digital extremes can pull off the sequel because Starbreeze makes very special atmospheric games
I loved the first one, except the World War 1 levels which I didn't enjoy playing. Hopefully they can capture that dark, gritty, grimey New York feel again.
THis is great news! I still have the first one. I though it was a great gme that went under the radar!
Seriously great news. Loved the first one..one of the most under rated shooters of 2007 if not this generation.
What are you guys smokin? I want some.
if u played it u would kno
you guys do know that everyone has diff taste?hes allowed to have his own opinion...why get all defensive
@Nyc_Gamer Yeah everyone is entitled to an opinion but he didn't have one he is basically trolling. Stating he didn't like he game and a good reason why would be totally fine and acceptable but running and saying "What are you guys smokin" is trolling simple as that.
You persistently insist on Trolling and don't even make the effort to hide the fact, please, let's put a stop to being immature, although, come to think of it, you are probably just some 10 Year old kid looking for attention...
Can't wait to hear more about this,this is actually good news to me :D <3
i thought the first game was just average and nothing special
I will admit the firsts game play was average and nothing special, but the storytelling to me was amazing. SPOILER Especially parts like watching the movie with your girlfriend and then having to watch her die.
farrr I so forgot about this game I swear haha. It was good, looking forward to D2 :)
But still, great news. The first was a brilliant game, highly underrated, my only point to add is that if they insist on adding multiplayer into the game again, make sure its playable, there were some good ideas but not put to god use, still, maintain the majority of focus on producing a brilliant campaign again.
I dunno if they can top the whole Jenny thing. Pretty disturbing but also the highlight of the entire game I would say. The first one was pretty easy on all difficulties too, until you reached nazi land (shot to death from nowhere), hopefully they can make the darkness power a little less all-powerful, or vary the enemy types some more. The more I think about a Darkness sequel the more I think of how much the first one served as a great one-shot game. I'm a little skeptical about a sequel already.
I thought the original was pretty different to other shooters, and that I enjoyed. Let's hope that the sequel makes great improvements :)
uhhhh, whoa, i kinda fucking called this. as a joke about 4 months ago, i said to my fellow GameTrailers addict that this game would be somewhat announced after E3, but wouldnt be developed by Starbreeze. obviously i have no proof of this prediction, but this is wigging me out hardcore.
Nice!!! Cant wait.
I loved the gameplay of the first, it was unique to me and fun.
I wonder if Jackie ever met Jenny again in the comics.
I want this & prey 2!!!
good luck with prey 2 cause 3d realms arent sellouts
Great News. Can't wait to see it in action.
swweeet!!! cannot wait. one of m first few games when i got a ps3. only thing i couldnt stand was the online.
