Mike Patton Is Back For The Darkness II

When news of The Darkness II first broke, I received a flurry of emails and comments - all with one question. Would Mike Patton be reprising his memorable performance in the game? Thankfully, we've just gotten word that the answer is yes. Mike Patton will once again be involved.

“The story behind The Darkness II wouldn’t be complete or authentic without the character of The Darkness,” claimed Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “Mike Patton brings a completely unique perspective to the role which is essential in creating the world of The Darkness.”

We fully agree. The Darkness featured some of the most memorable moments of any shooter released this generation, and we're looking forward to the sequel. Mike Patton, it seems, is looking forward to doing his thing in the game.

“It feels really good to be the bad guy, and The Darkness is as bad as it gets,” said Mike Patton. “I’ve read through the script and Jackie is going to be a brutally tortured soul. I’m looking forward to making his life a living hell.”


    Nice. Never played the first but will be scouring the bargain bins when i get home. Mike Patton is the man.

      Yeah I want Darkness 1 now too!

    I love him so much. Fantomas is amazing.

    I was wish he made me care about ANOTHER shooter...

    In other news I like u!

    Sure, The Darkness had its moments, but the gunplay and enemy AI was rubbish. Also, controlling when that that snake/serpent sliding along the ground mode was nauseating. End rant.

      *"when IN that", rather.

      I agree to a certain point, but damn did it have potential! And personallity on spades, something 99% of current games lack.
      Ill be watching this one...

        in spades that is lol

    Just another reason why Mike Patton is better than everybody else. Ever.

    I personally wanted to know if he was reprising his role as "GLaDOS' Angrer Sphere" in Portal 2...

      *Anger Sphere. *palms face*

    Excellent, all is now well in video game land.

    Patton getting more involved with games can only lead to good things, the original The Darkness game, Portal and Left 4 Dead are proof of this.

    ... nobody mention Bionic Commando.

      Yeah, he's a great game designer/developer!....?!?!?! He lent his voice which brought his fanatics in droves.

    This is the bestnews I've heard all day!
    Mike Patton just oozes talent.
    He was the highlight of 2010 Soundwave, best entertainer I've ever seen.

    First game was great, except I had a 2nd hand copy and the disc stopped working near the end of the game :(
