The Darkness 2 demo hits Xbox Live next week

One week ahead of Steam and PlayStation Network.

Xbox Live Gold subscribers get a demo for comic book shooter sequel The Darkness 2 on 17th January, publisher Take-Two has announced.

The taster then goes live for standard XBL patrons and Steam customers on 24th January, with European PlayStation Network members getting it last on the 25th.

The full game, developed by Digital Extremes, then follows on 10th February.

"The Darkness 2 may not be redefining your idea of co-op play, then, but it appears to deliver the goods when it comes to grim demonic combat and lightly tactical teamwork," read Eurogamer's recent The Darkness 2 preview.
