The Darkness is not finished with Jackie Estacado and we’re not done with our Twitter Giveaways! This week, we’ve got a darkly awesome prize pack to celebrate the release of 2K’s sequel to the smash-hit Darkness video game!
According to EmbracetheDarkness.com, The Darkness II video game is:
…the sequel to the critically acclaimed 2007 release The Darkness. Inspired by the popular comic book series produced by Top Cow Productions, Inc., The Darkness II is an intense first person shooter that puts you in the role of Jackie Estacado, don of a New York crime family and wielder of an ancient force of chaos known as The Darkness.
It’s been two years since Jackie used his power to kill the men responsible for his girlfriend’s murder. He’s been unable to shake the memory of Jenny’s death since bottling up The Darkness and now it wants out. A botched attempt on Jackie’s life opens the door for The Darkness to reemerge, and sets Jackie on a brutal and personal journey as he unravels the mystery behind the attack and the motives of The Darkness.
