2K Games has said it plans to issue a patch for The Darkness II which will include controls for PC users to change the game’s field of view. This is according to a conversation TotalBiscuit had with 2K, where it was discussed that not allowing PC gamers and option to switch from a narrow, 60 degrees FOV to one that is larger – say 90 degrees – can make things a bit uncomfortable for players. 2K has not formally announced its plans for a patch, but according to the firm’s Elizabeth Tobey, the development is “looking into a solution”. Thanks, GameFront.
