The great Adam "The Riveter" Rosenberg got to check out The Darkness 2's co-op mode, and brought back a preview that goes in to great depth about the game's just announced two-player campaign. Here's a little bit of the preview:
"At the core of The Darkness 2's online play is the Vendettas campaign, a completely separate story that unfolds parallel to protagonist Jackie Estacado's own adventure. 2K had previously hinted that Jackie's new found role as a mob boss would create some new gameplay opportunities, and it appears that Vendettas is it. Playable either solo or in co-op teams of two, three, or four people, Vendettas follows four characters who each have their own, unique link to the same force that gives Jackie his powers."
