TransGaming bringing The Darkness II to Mac in March

updated 11:00 pm EST, Fri February 10, 2012

GameTree Mac accepting pre-orders

Cider port house TransGaming's download service GameTreeMac is now accepting pre-orders for The Darkness II, a first-person shooter released earlier this month for Windows and consoles originally from 2K Games, TheLoop reports. The Mac version is expected in March, and the sequel is based on the same comic book series that inspired the original game, which was released in 2007. The game, when released, will be available via Steam.

The games tell the story of a crime boss named Jackie Estacado who wields a ruthless and chaotic supernatural force known as The Darkness. In the original game, Estacado used the dark forces to kill the men responsible for his girlfriend's murder. In the sequel, an unprovoked attack by a new enemy known as the Brotherhood opens the door for The Darkness to re-emerge, at a possible cost of Estacado's soul.

The storyline for the game has been written by comic book author Paul Jenkins, who wrote the original The Darkness game story and has also worked on The Incredible Hulk and Wolverine. The artwork and graphics are inspired by the original comic book, which was created by created by Marc Silvestri, Garth Ennis, and David Wohl.

The game requires a Steam account and an Intel Mac running OS X 10.6.8 or 10.7.2 or higher. The AMD (ATI) HD2600 or Nvidia 9600GT and other video cards with 256MB of VRAM or higher is also required. The game sells for $50 and features a 4-player co-op campaign mode. A live-action movie based on the graphic novel series is currently in development. [via The Loop]

    Correct me if I'm wrong,

    But isn't a "Cider port" an oxymoron?
