Mafia II PS3 Exclusive DLC: The Betrayal Of Jimmy
For all you open-world sandbox fans, Mafia II should be high on your priority list.
And if you're a PlayStation 3 owner, you'll be even more enticed: the PS3 version of the game will come with some exclusive downloadable content, entitled The Betrayal of Jimmy. They say it's "almost an arcade-style take on the Mafia II experience." In other words, the team took the simple yet fun elements of the game - shooting, driving, stealing, etc. - and made it a "point-based romp, complete with leaderboards." So like, a lot of speed, a lot of explosions, and a lot of dead people. You can rack up points for drifting, high speed driving, headshots, kill combos, and more, but they aren't entirely abandoning story elements. The developers did make the extra effort to include "new cut-scenes and voice acting to keep production quality consistent from the main game." However, as they say in the Blog update, you'll most certainly want to complete the single-player story first, as you don't really learn much plot-wise in the DLC. But there are 25 action-packed missions!
Also, bear in mind that this content won't be included on the disc; you'll have to download it off the PSN. New copies of Mafia II will come with the download voucher code; if you buy the game used, you'll have to shell out the $9.99 to purchase the pack separately. This DLC will be available after the game's launch, but it will only be out for PS3 owners on the game's launch day, which is August 24.
