Thursday 16th September
2K Games announced today that Joe’s Adventures*, the third action-packed downloadable game add-on for the epic crime game, Mafia II, is coming worldwide to the PlayStationStore for the PlayStation3 computer entertainment system, Xbox LIVE Marketplace for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC later this year. Joes Adventures continues the prodigious crime drama of Mafia II through the eyes of Joe Barbaro, Vito Scalettas best friend, during the time that Vito spends in prison. The game add-on extends the original narrative of Mafia II by combining a dramatic storyline with intense arcade-style gameplay that opens up several new areas in Empire Bay and items for players to get their hands dirty with.
Impulsive and unpredictable, Joe Barbaro has been at Vitos side since childhood. That is, until Vito gets caught and sent to prison. In Joe’s Adventures, Joe uncovers the truth behind Vitos prison sentence and whats really going on in the Clemente family.
Joes Adventures offers an engaging narrative and allows players to explore new locations, including a train station, the cathouse, a boat yard, a seasonally changing lakefront and some never-before-seen buildings in Empire Bay. This exciting new chapter in the Mafia II saga includes new clothing, collectibles and even more classic 40s and 50s music. In addition to the story-based missions, Joes Adventures opens up a slew of optional city-based quests packed with arcade action gameplay and a points-based system that allows players to move up the ranks on the online leaderboard through combos and multiplier bonuses. Deadly executions by head shot or charged explosives rack up points, and precision-timed vehicular power slides, lofty jumps and feats of supercharged speed maintain the adrenaline-charged fun for extensive replayability.
Mafia II immerses players in a cinematic, Hollywood-style experience with strong, believable characters in a living, breathing metropolis. By fusing action-packed gameplay with white-knuckle driving and an epic gangster story, Mafia II is the industry’s most compelling Mafia title to date.
Mafia II is developed by 2K Czech, the same creative team behind the award-winning, genre-defining Mafia, which captivated millions of gamers around the world. Mafia II is rated PEGI 18 and is currently available worldwide.For more information on Mafia II, please visit www.mafia2game.com.
