Mafia II Greatest Hits Edition on the way
The Don runs things around here; maintaining a strong grip on our city and brutally cracking down on any rival Mafia’s that dare to operate within his territory without prior permission. As such he has a lot of cash on him, importing the finest Cuban cigars and lavishing expensive diamonds on his dozens of mistresses. Even through all this though there’s one thing I can say about our Don; he still loves a good bargain!
Thankfully 2K won’t be waking up with any horses heads in their beds, as they’ve made The Don happy by announcing a Greatest Hits version of Mafia II. Due for release worldwide throughout April (of course, The Don got his copy months ago) the Greatest Hits edition includes the excellent standalone game and all the previously released downloadable content. For us 360 owners it marks the first time we can play The Betrayal of Jimmy, as this was previously a PS3 exclusive release.
Here are the full details of what’s included in the package:
- The full edition of the gripping crime-drama, Mafia II, where Vito and his buddy, Joe, are making a name for themselves on the streets of Empire Bay, working their way up the Mafia family ladder with crimes of larger reward, status and consequence.
- The Betrayal of Jimmy: Players take on Empire Bay through an alternate perspective of the mob through the eyes of Jimmy, a mercenary. Jimmy is the guy the other guys call when they need to finish the job. The Betrayal of Jimmy features dozens of intense arcade-style, city-based missions that keep Jimmy driving, shooting and rampaging through Empire Bay.
- Jimmy’s Vendetta: Once the mob’s most effective ally, Jimmy is now its greatest enemy. Fueled by rage, Jimmy takes on Italian and Irish mobsters in a slew of unlockable city quests, including assassination and timed vehicle pursuits ending in dramatic shootouts.
- Joe’s Adventures: Play as Joe Barbaro as he rampages through Empire Bay in the wake of Vito Scaletta’s prison sentence. Joe must uncover the traitor who betrayed Vito while overcoming the challenges of moving up the ranks in the mob.
- Four Style Packs including Vegas, Renegade, Greaser and War Hero — each with two cars and two suits for in-game use
