2K Games has announced the release date for The Darkness II, the sequel to 2007's supernatural first-person shooter.

The Darkness II will be released on October 4 in North America, and October 7 in the rest of the world. Digital Extremes is replacing Starbreeze Studios as the developer for the sequel, which will continue the story of Jackie Estacado, a mafioso with demonic powers called "the Darkness." In the sequel, players will be able to use a technique called "quad wielding," which will allow players to use guns and demon powers at the same time. We checked with a team of scientists, who confirmed that quad wielding is twice as awesome as dual wielding.

The Darkness II will be available for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3.
