Starting August 10th gamers worldwide will be able to take their first criminal steps in Empire Bay with the action-packed crime game demo. 2K Games announced today that its upcoming epic action crime game, Mafia II, will have a downloadable demo available worldwide on August 10 for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
From there gamers will get their first chance to experience the decadent and meticulously crafted atmosphere, intense shooting and driving gameplay, and character narrative in Mafia II that is set to be fully unleashed on August 24 in North America, August 26 in Australia and August 27 internationally.
While the epic game spans two decades, the Buzzsaw demo takes place during the summer of the ‘50s – a time considered the “Birth of Cool”, and with it, rock ‘n’ roll, hot rods, and rebellious attitudes. The demo showcases the type of vibrant edge-of-your-seat action that gamers will experience throughout the entire game, as well as a slice of the expansive city of Empire Bay in the colorful era.
Mafia II looks to be the industry’s most compelling action crime game to date. Players take control of Vito Scaletta, who is making a name for himself on the streets of Empire Bay. He’s someone who can be trusted to get a job done. Together with his buddy Joe, he is working to prove himself to the Mafia quickly escalating up the family ladder with crimes of larger reward, status and consequences… the life as a wise guy isn’t quite as untouchable as it seems.
Fun for the whole family!
