2K Games @ PAX PRIME
The Darkness II (Booth #3317)
The Darkness II video game is the sequel to the million unit-selling 2007 title, The Darkness. The title brings a unique new combat mechanic through Quad-Wielding™, which will allow players to slash, grab, and throw objects and enemies with two Demon Arms while simultaneously firing two weapons. The game is layered with thematic elements of dark versus light, steeped in deep and twisted storytelling, and maintains the stylistic violence visualized through a graphic noir technique, true to its comic book origins. The game will be available on February 7, 2012 in North America and February 10, 2012 internationally for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC.
Panel – Video Games and Comics: A Natural Partnership? – Friday, August 26, 2011, 11:00 a.m., Unicorn Theater
Marc Silvestri, CEO of TopCow and Creator of The Darkness; Sheldon Carter, Creative Director at Digital Extremes; and Ron Davey, lead environmental artist at Digital Extremes will discuss how the blockbuster comic has taken on a new life in video games and the inspirations behind The Darkness II. Ten limited-edition Darkling statues will also be given away to panel attendees.
XCOM (Booth #3417)
Featuring a bold new origin story told from a new perspective, XCOM pits Special Agent William Carter and his team against the threat of human extinction from an insidious otherworldly force. But every enemy is an opportunity – players will strike surgically against the alien menace, capture their technology, and by the science of desperation – turn the invaders’ weapons against them. Armed with these lethal new tools of war, players will command their squad on XCOM’s front lines: Main Street, USA. The game will be available on March 6, 2012 in North America and March 9, 2012 internationally for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC.
Attendees at PAX will be able to step into Citizen One’s Seattle bunker as he recruits new agents into Citizen SkyWatch to expose the government’s attempts to cover up the unknown threat invading our skies.
