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 RTX 2070 Super 8GB

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 2070 Super 8GB Performance Review

Viewing the performance found on the 1 year old GeForce RTX 2070 Super 8GB while playing The Darkness 2 we quickly see it can return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

Playing The Darkness 2 on Ultra 4k is certainly possible with this graphics card and we expect it will return around 200+ frames per second at that top scale resolution.

Finding a PC with this gpu or better would return some strong FPS in The Darkness 2. We would definitely recommend running at 4K screen res and on ultra, before trying any lower screen resolution. You would also need at least 2GB of RAM. Perhaps couple this gaming PC with a processor that's as powerful as the Intel Core i7-9700K 8-Core 3.6GHz and Ultra 4K would be a smooth experience.

To summarise, GeForce RTX 2070 Super 8GB 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 $0.95 per 1080p Ultra frame. This increases to $1.24 per frame at 1440p Ultra and even more with 4K Ultra at $2.08 per frame.
