In 10 days, the new DLC of Mafia 2 will finally be available to all on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC. Entitled Joe's Adventure, it will show us what happened to Joe when Vito was sent into jail for a few years and it will also take us to unexplored areas of Empire Bay.

To all DLC lovers, you should be pleased to hear that Mafia 2 will extend its main story with a new adventure focused on Joe Barbado, Vito Scaletta's best friend. The player will be able to find out what happened during the several years they spent apart from each other. I won't say more but be warned that there is a major spoiler in the press release.
Mafia 2 was launched about a week ago, and it hit the stores without earning the unanimous support of the specialist press. Ever divergent opinions accrued on the Internet to the great displeasure of slightly unsettled forum members. But we are not pretending to offer the most reliable and downright compelling review here since subjectivity is the key word. Subjectivity is greatly defined by one’s personal expectations of this new adventure with the Mafia. In order to let you discover the game on your own – and thoroughly enjoy it – we will obviously avoid revealing anything about the storyline. In the same line of thinking, the videos will only contain a scanty amount of information on the scenario. So you can rest assured: there is nothing now to prevent you from losing yourself reading this new review.
Kudos to Balita who was very helpful by translating this article.

We are running a bit late but I'm just back from a well-deserved vacation so I'm sure you'll forgive us for waiting until today to show you a bunch of videos taken from the Mafia 2 video that was released on August 10. The console versions are clearly not as sharp and smooth as the PC version but they are still doing a good job at conveying the great atmosphere of the game and no matter what some people think, they are very enjoyable to play despite some aliasing and framerate issues. I chose to cut the demo in three different vidéos so we will logically start with the first one this morning. Two more will come later today, enjoy! Update: Part 2 and part 3 are now up.
I really expected CDProject to deliver on the graphics as they really did so with Witcher 2. Oh well, it still looks like it'll be way above average grejfix. (12 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: Maybe, but hopefully Witcher 3 will at least not be rushed and broken on release. At least i hope so. The graphics still look good, even if the visual downgrade is disappointing. (13 minutes ago)
@Moonwalker: I thought the ocean in particular looked really bad. Remember that initial reveal video w/ crazy waves and awesome water effects? Gone. (1 Hour ago)
Either way..i am not concerned about colours, its something you can change yourself. But i am a little about some parts in the PC video, some things looking really nice and others rather...mediocre. (2 Hours ago)
@droezelke: CDPR said it was running on Xbox One during MS' press conference. :) (2 Hours ago)
Bit of a double standard, no? If this were an Ubigame all we'd be hearing about is the downgrade. The franchise depth is way overstated too :P (3 Hours ago)
