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 1070

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1070 Performance Review

Getting the The Darkness 2 running while using a GeForce GTX 1070 can see it could get a very strong 200+ FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

But then the GeForce GTX 1070 will get a solid big screen performance at 4K, with 183 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 $2.07 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.

In summary, the GeForce GTX 1070 is clearly an overpowered bit of hardware for The Darkness 2, but it certainly gives you the choice of desired in game visuals. With 1080p Ultra coming in at 200+ FPS, then you have 1440p Ultra with 200+ frames per second and on up to 4K resolution Ultra will see 183 FPS.
