Have you pre-ordered The Darkness II yet? 2K Games has announced that all pre-orders in Singapore will be entitled to a free upgrade to exclusive Asia limited steel book edition of the first-person shooter game.
2K Games has announced that as of today in Singapore, all pre-orders of "The Darkness II", the sequel to the million unit-selling "The Darkness" in 2007, will receive a free upgrade to the Asia exclusive steel book with lenticular sleeve limited edition.
Inspired by the supernatural horror comic book series created by Top Cow Productions, and developed by Digital Extremes, "The Darkness II" takes players down a brutal and personal path as Jackie Estacado, wielder of "The Darkness" – an ancient and ruthless force of chaos and destruction. The Darkness II is a well of dark and imaginative violence that breaks from the traditional first person shooter conventions with its uniquely stylized gameplay. The fervid Quad-Wielding gameplay empowers players to slash, grab, and throw objects at enemies using ruthless Demon Arms, while simultaneously firing two weapons.
It has been two years since Jackie Estacado, now the Don of the Estacado crime family, used The Darkness to kill the men responsible for the murder of his girlfriend. Estacado continues to have haunting visions of his beloved Jenny since her death and tried to cope by bottling up his supernatural power, and now The Darkness wants out. A sudden, unprovoked attack on Jackie’s life heralds the start of a full-scale mob war, which has clearly been orchestrated by some outside force. The botched attempt opens the door for The Darkness to re-emerge, and sets Jackie on a journey to hell and worse, as he unravels the mystery behind the attack and the motivations of The Darkness itself.

– Asia exclusive steel book with lenticular sleeve packaging
