Faith No More man signs on to play game's title character again

Mike Patton to reprise villain role in 'The Darkness' video game
Faith No More's Mike Patton is to reprise his voiceover role as the title character in the sequel to video game The Darkness.

The first game tells the story of mafia hitman Jackie Estacado, who is possessed by an ancient demonic force called The Darkness. He can perform amazing actions as long as he avoids light. It was released in 2007.

The sequel, The Darkness II, is due out later this year.

Patton said of the role: "It feels really good to be the bad guy, and The Darkness is as bad as it gets. I've read through the script and Jackie [Estacado] is going to be a brutally tortured soul. I'm looking forward to making his life a living hell."

Since 2007 Patton has lent his vocal talents to four more video games, including two in the Left 4 Dead franchise.

Faith No More played their last scheduled show together in December.
