2K Games to Publish The Darkness

2k Games today announced that they’ll be publishing The Darkness, a premier video game based on the popular comic book franchise developed by Starbreeze Studios. The Darkness is currently in development for next generation console systems and is scheduled to be released next winter.

The Darkness video game is based on the best-selling comic book series from Top Cow Productions and utilizes a Starbreeze internally developed next-generation game engine. The Darkness will feature a distinct blend of dark modern crime drama and supernatural horror with intense first person non-linear gameplay.

“The Darkness video game is a dynamic first person shooter that allows players to call upon the forces of the evil underworld as they fight in gritty, urban environments,” said Christoph Hartmann, Managing Director of 2K Games. “Armed with an arsenal of guns, gamers will battle an array of demonic creatures and supernatural powers. The dark and dynamic comic book storyline will translate perfectly into first-person action that fans will love.”

In the game, players assume the role of mafia hitman Jackie Estacado. On the night of his 21st birthday, Jackie is possessed by “The Darkness,” an ancient demonic entity that gives Jackie spectacular powers. The story, written by Eisner Award winner Paul Jenkins, follows Jackie and his fight with the fictional Francetti mafia. As the story unfolds, the player will learn to utilize traditional weapons and the extraordinary powers of The Darkness.

Well there you have it. Games such as “Spiderman” and “Hulk” now have another “Comic Book First” title joining them.
