Press release :
2K Games Announces August 27, 2010 UK Street Date for Mafia® II
Epic mobster video game combines rich storytelling with the style and vices of the '40s and '50s for high-stakes third-person shooter
WINDSOR, UK – March 25, 2010 – 2K Games announced today that Mafia® II will be available on August 27, 2010 in the UK for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC. Mafia II is currently in development by 2K Czech, the same creative team behind the award-winning, genre-defining Mafia®, which captivated millions of gamers around the world.
Through a compelling narrative, Mafia II transports gamers into the dark and unforgiving world of the Mafia. The fiction is embellished by a sophisticated, era-evoking atmosphere that meticulously replicates the clothing, cars, music and advertising of 1940’s and 1950’s Americana. Players will easily become immersed in the game’s cinematic Hollywood-style experience with strong, believable characters in a living, breathing metropolis. By fusing high-octane gunplay with white-knuckle driving and an engaging narrative, Mafia II looks to be the industry’s most compelling Mafia title to date. VideoGamer.com recently said “this will be one of the highlights of 2010”.
Born the son of a poor immigrant, Vito is a beaten-down Italian-American who is trying to escape the life of poverty that consumed his childhood. Vito, along with his lifelong friend, Joe, will descend into the world of organised crime. Looking to escape the life of hardship that his father led, Vito dreams about becoming a “made man,” and together with Joe, will work to prove themselves to the Mafia as they try to make their names on the streets. However, the two quickly realize that life as a wise guy isn’t quite as glamorous as it seems.
Additionally, Mafia II will be playable by the public for the first time at the Penny Arcade Expo East (PAX East) being held at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, Massachusetts from March 26 – March 28 at the 2K Games booth (booth #103).
Mafia II is rated PEGI 18. For more information on Mafia II, please visit www.mafia2game.com.
That doesn't make sense. Wouldn't a bottom dweller have all the time in the world to watch movies? Don't you? (1 Hour ago)
as confirmed from a native of one of the two supposed languages, if it weren't for one being referenced and put aside. but i guess a bottom dweller wouldn't have the time to see foreign movies. (2 Hours ago)
@Sdarts: I'm not sure that "better than Geralt's VA" is much of an achievement, lol. (2 Hours ago)
As confirmed by a verified weebo. (2 Hours ago)
as stupid as the language "white washing" is in Silence, the Japanese take is very much authentic. (2 Hours ago)
I just really recommend the books, because they're really bloody great. Also, I recommend people listen to the audiobboks, the voice actor is really great. Some even say he's better than Geralt's VA. (3 Hours ago)
also angry that he missed out on so much money. And of course, the lack of ownership and direction of the characters' and story's path. Which I'm sure no author likes loosing control over something. (3 Hours ago)
