We took a look earlier in
the month at The Darkness II's co-op Vendettas mode, and now here's
some character trailers to get you acquainted with the four
protagonists of the multiplayer spinoff story. Like any good action
saga, the clips present our heroes in what's fancily termed “the
ethical habit of action”... or in layman's terms, they're in the
midst of splitting some heads.
Brutally efficient and
devoted to her Mossad training, Shoshanna weilds the Arm of the
Night, which is an awful high-falutin' name for a preternaturally
powerful shotgun. But then, if someone wants to give their
super-shotgun a fancy name, it's best to let them, because duh,
they've got a super-shotgun.
The unhinged Inugami hails
from Japan, from whence he brings a supernaturally-charged Samurai
sword and a yearning for revenge. Sure, giving the Japanese dude the
demon-charged Samurai blade is a bit obvious, but if it ain't broke
and so forth, yes?
JP DuMond is a Creole doctor
from New Orleans, which you've doubtless guessed by now is a longhand
way of saying, “Voodoo.” His weapons are the Midnight Stick, the
Box of Tricks, and a guilt complex over using black magic to treat
patients – which can only be assuaged by using black magic to kill
Jimmy Wilson is a
tough-as-nails Scotsman from Glasgow, who hates the English as much
as he loves being drunk and swinging a dark axe – on which he has
bestowed the admirably straightforward title of “Dark Axe.”
You'll get your shot at
Vendettas when The Darkness II releases in early February. Who're you looking forward to playing?
