In the Darkness 2 there are 29 relics that can be found in the game. They are purple shiny objects surrounded by treasure and coins. They are pretty obvious, the hard part is just finding the path to see them.
If you pause the game during a level in the bottom left it will say how many relics are in your current level. Make sure you pause once you feel the setting has changed to make sure you don’t miss any in a level. Also if you have the pre-order you should level your bonus essence talents and get relic hunter. Then while playing a level also look for a relic symbol and follow it to the relic. Relics give 300+ to essence to making it worth finding.
NOTE: These aren’t all in order I missed a few along the way I will try my best to update as many relics as I can. For now I will number what I found so you know how many I at least know of.
