New Video Delves into The Darkness II's Co-Op Mode

The Darkness was a pretty decent game that came out about five years ago.  Maybe you played it - maybe you didn't.  Either way, the game did well enough to spawn a shiny new sequel, titled The Darkness II.  As an added bonus, this new game appears to have a rather fleshed-out co-op mode.  In the cooperative "Vendettas" mode, players will control four new characters as they brutalize their foes with Darkness infused weapons.

We bring in 2012 with a bang.

The Co-Op Games of 2012 Preview

2012 looks to be another great year for co-op gamers, at least initially. While in the past we always seemed to build slowly to a series of Fall releases, this year looks to reverse the trend with an action packed middle of the year. Are the summer doldrums a thing of the past? Locke and Nick take you on a magic carpet ride through 2012 in both written and video form.

Four New Trailers for The Darkness 2 Co-Op Characters

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 II Adds 4 Player Online Co-Op

There used to be a time when game developers added a deathmatch mode to a game simply so they could have the multiplayer bullet point on the back of the box.  It seems though now we've gone a different, and much more preferred method, co-op.  Single player games have been adding a co-op mode to increase replayability and interest, titles like Mass Effect 3 and Syndicate spring to mind immediately.  The latest game to follow this trend is 2K Games The Darkness II which is out early next year on consoles and PC.
