The Darkness dated

For Europe in June.

2K Games has confirmed to Eurogamer this morning that The Darkness will launch across Europe on 29th June.

It will be available slightly earlier in America, on 25th June, and both console versions will launch simultaneously.

The game is being developed by Starbreeze, the studio behind The Chronicles of Riddick, and it's based on the Top Cow comic of the same name. It tells story of Jackie Estacado, a Mafia hitman who inherits The Darkness powers from his father on his 21st birthday.

It's essentially a first-person shooter with a bucket-load of added superhuman powers, which get progressively more impressive the further you venture through the game. You grow superhuman, tentacle-like arms and can transform into a Darkling in multiplayer. Excellent.

Lunge your way over to our recent first impressions for more information, or pop into our The Darkness gamepage for a look at the latest trailers and screenshots.
