We were pleasantly surprised to see a new co-op mode announced for The Darkness 2. We first brought you news of the Vendettas mode a few weeks ago. This has been advertised as a four player co-op campaign, therefore we're expecting more than just a tacked-on survival mode. The story will intersect with that of the main character, Jackie Estacado. The four new characters have their own unique skills, weapons, and personalities. You can see each of them in action in the following videos.
The Darkness 2 will be out on February 7th for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. It supports four player online co-op.
