News: PS3 will receive Mafia II Greatest Hits, Xbox 360 will get Mafia II Platinum Hits and the PC will see a Mafia II Director's Cut.
may have had its problems as an open world videogame, as we pointed out in our Mafia II review
, but it was worth playing through and we wouldn't mind extending the missions for the right price. 2K Games is offering gamers who haven't invested into this crime drama an offer they can't refuse.
The publisher is re-releasing the game in three flavors with a bunch of DLC included on the disc. PS3 will receive Mafia II Greatest Hits, Xbox 360 will get Mafia II Platinum Hits and the PC will see a Mafia II Director's Cut. While a $30 price
and April release window have been locked down for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of this extended title, the PC Director's Cut is only slated "become available in the coming months."
All three editions will include
- The full edition of the gripping crime-drama, Mafia II, where Vito and his buddy, Joe, are making a name for themselves on the streets of Empire Bay, working their way up the Mafia family ladder with crimes of larger reward, status and consequence.
- The Betrayal of Jimmy: Players take on Empire Bay through an alternate perspective of the mob through the eyes of Jimmy, a mercenary. Jimmy is the guy the other guys call when they need to finish the job. The Betrayal of Jimmy features dozens of intense arcade-style, city-based missions that keep Jimmy driving, shooting and rampaging through Empire Bay.
- Jimmy's Vendetta: Once the mob's most effective ally, Jimmy is now its greatest enemy. Fueled by rage, Jimmy takes on Italian and Irish mobsters in a slew of unlockable city quests, including assassination and timed vehicle pursuits ending in dramatic shootouts.
- Joe's Adventures: Play as Joe Barbaro as he rampages through Empire Bay in the wake of Vito Scaletta's prison sentence. Joe must uncover the traitor who betrayed Vito while overcoming the challenges of moving up the ranks in the mob.
- Four Style Packs including Vegas, Renegade, Greaser and War Hero ? each with two cars and two suits for in-game use.
- These editions mark the first time that Xbox 360 and PC players can experience The Betrayal of Jimmy, featuring intense arcade-style gameplay that keeps Jimmy driving, shooting and fighting throughout Empire Bay.
