You’ll need to know which platform you want to play it on, as the launch is a little awkwardly staggered across all three, and across the world.
Here’s the list, mark your calendars accordingly:
TUESDAY, JANUARY 17TH
Xbox LIVE: Worldwide (Gold subscribers)
TUESDAY, JANUARY 24TH
Xbox LIVE: Worldwide
PlayStation Network: North America
Steam (PC): Worldwide
WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 25TH
PlayStation Network: Europe
PlayStation Network: Asia/Pacific
…as always with these virtual day-and-date launches which span international divides, remember that The Darkness II might not be immediately downloadable at the stroke of midnight in your particular part of the globe. Be patient, it’ll be there eventually. Once it is, you’ll be able to spend some quality time with Jackie Estacado and his new quad-wielding Darkness skills.
