The Darkness 2 packshot image
The Darkness II breaks out of the sea of conventional first-person shooters with its fervid Quad-Wielding gameplay, which will allow players to slash, grab, and throw objects and enemies with their Demon Arms while simultaneously firing two weapons. The game is layered with the use of dark versus light, steeped in deep and twisted storytelling, and engulfed in stylistic violence that is visualized through a hand-painted graphic noir technique that stays true to its comic book origins.
It’s been two years since Jackie Estacado, now the Don of the Franchetti crime family, used The Darkness to kill the men responsible for his girlfriend’s murder. He’s been unable to shake the memory of Jenny’s death since bottling up his supernatural power, and now The Darkness wants out. A sudden, unprovoked attack on Jackie’s life heralds the start of a full-scale mob war, which has clearly been orchestrated by some outside force. The botched attempt opens the door for The Darkness to reemerge, and sets Jackie on a journey to hell and worse, as he unravels the mystery behind the attack and the motivations of The Darkness itself.

The Darkness 2

GeForce GTX 1080

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1080 Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 4 year old GeForce GTX 1080 while playing The Darkness 2 we quickly see it can get a very strong 200+ FPS. To get that The Darkness 2 is benched at High graphics setting and at 1080p.

But then the GeForce GTX 1080 will get a solid big screen performance at 4K, with 200+ frames per second. So we expect you are likely to consider running the game in 4K or 1440p. If you are interested, this is a cost of $3.47 per FPS, assuming we take it based on the GPU’s launch price.

This graphics card, paired with at least 2GB system memory and a suitable processor, like the Intel Core i7-6700K 4-Core 4.0GHz would be perfect to run this game at 4K Ultra.

To summarise, GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards can smoothly run this game, but what The Darkness 2 screen resolution would you like to run with? While you can get 200+ FPS with 4K Ultra you can increase your frame rate to 200+ FPS in Ultra 1440p and up to 200+ FPS with 1080p. Pricing this on a frame per frame around the graphics cards original price it will cost $1.58 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $2.06 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $3.47 per frame.
