Mac users seem to be getting a bit more love these days as many big name games are headed it’s way. Today it was announced that The Darkness II will be released on the Mac in the near future. Players will be able to purchase the game through a number of online retailers.

From the press release:

    TransGaming Inc., the global leader in the multiplatform deployment of games, today announced it has partnered with 2K Games to bring the eagerly anticipated title, The Darkness™ II, to the Mac. This represents the first title in The Darkness franchise to be made available to the Mac gaming community.

    The Darkness II continues the story of Jackie Estacado, head of a New York crime family and wielder of an ancient and brutal force of chaos and destruction known as the Darkness. Introducing unique Quad-Wielding™ combat and four-person cooperative gameplay distinct from the first-person campaign, The Darkness II breaks the mold of traditional first-person shooter titles. 2K Games is world-renowned for developing and publishing exceptionally popular triple-A titles, such as BioShock®, Borderlands™ and Sid Meier’s Civilization® V. The Darkness II will be available soon on TransGaming’s leading digital distribution site for Mac games, and many of 2K Games’ distribution channels including Steam.

    The partnership with 2K Games represents an expansion of the existing relationship between TransGaming Inc. and Take-Two Interactive Software. The relationship began with Rockstar Games and the successful launch of the Mac version of their acclaimed Grand Theft Auto Trilogy.

    “TransGaming and 2K Games are committed to delivering the most immersive and innovative entertainment experiences to consumers, ” commented Vikas Gupta, CEO & President of TransGaming Inc. “We’re pleased to expand our partnership with 2K Games and bring one of their most anticipated titles to Mac.
