Mike Patton returning as the voice of evil in The Darkness II

2K Games has confirmed that veteran voice actor and Faith No More rock 'n roller Mike Patton will be reprising his role as 'The Darkness' in Starbreeze Studios' supernatural sequel, the Darkness II.

“It feels really good to be the bad guy, and The Darkness is as bad as it gets,” said Mike Patton in today's announcement. “I’ve read through the script and Jackie is going to be a brutally tortured soul. I’m looking forward to making his life a living hell.”

Patton's distinct voice will feature heavy in the sequel which finds Jackie Estacado once again forced to utilize the demonic powers of The Darkness to hold his own in an internal war between rival mob families. His other game credits include voice work as the Anger Sphere in Portal 2, Nathan Spencer in Bionic Commando and one of the Infected in Left 4 Dead. His bands, Faith No More, Mr. Bungle and Peeping Tom have also been featured in numerous movies and college dorm parties.

The Darkness II is expected for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC this fall.

    The first game was so damn good yet so underrated. I dont know many people who have even played it. I let everyone I know who told me they never heard of borrow my copy and they all loved it and Im so glad they decided to make another. I wish Starbreeze was making this one. Those guys always have some amazing tech to back up their gameplay and story but Ill remain optimistic

    You can make Jackie's life a hell Mike, just don't make my life one with a shitty game.

    i was a little bit confused to be honest when they announced a sequel as i always interpreted the ending as Jackie dying but once i got over that my next reaction was HELLS YEAH! on a side note i didn't realize he was in Faith No More

    This is a step in the right direction, considering Digital "we totally didn't make that half-assed multiplayer for Bioshock 2 and that game called Dark Sector that nobody bought" Extremes is making this. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD AND ALL THAT IS HOLY, DO NOT put in a half-assed multiplayer mode. The first one's was horrid, and DE seems to be known for shitty multiplayer modes.

    The Darkness is one of the only games with a bad ending I actually liked. I'm always sort of a "YAY HE PULLED THROUGH IN THE END!" kind of guy, but something about The Darkness just really made me like it. Looking forward to this one.
