Are you interested in giving The Darkness II a test drive before it launches? Well, today’s your lucky day. 2K Games has announced that a demo for The Darkness II is available right now, exclusively on Xbox Live for Gold members.

If you’re not an Xbox Live Gold member, don’t fret, as you’ll be able to download the demo from the Xbox Live marketplace on January 24th. That date also represents the day PlayStation 3 and PC owners will be able to snag the demo for their respective platforms.

The Darkness II demo gives you a chance to test out the game’s brutal Quad-Wielding combat system, allowing you to use two weapons and your two demon arms in tandem to rip apart your adversaries. We’ve been lucky enough to play The Darkness II a couple of times at various conventions and can say the combat is very much satisfying.

So what are you waiting for? Jump on Xbox Live now to download the demo before the full retail version of The Darkness II ships for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on February 7, 2012.
