2nd September 2010 - 2K Games have announced September 7, 2010 as the release date for Jimmy’s Vendetta*, the second action-infused downloadable game add-on for the epic crime game, Mafia II. In Jimmy’s Vendetta, players will experience arcade-style gameplay with more than 30 new quests and leaderboard ranking. Jimmy’s Vendetta will be available for players worldwide from the PlayStation Store for the PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, Xbox LIVE Marketplace for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC for $12.95/800 Microsoft Points.
Jimmy’s Vendetta takes players into an alternate perspective of the mob through the eyes of Jimmy, the guy the other guys call when they need to finish the job. Players will get their hands dirty helping Jimmy clean up other people’s messes as they deal with the Italian and Irish mobsters that reside in Empire Bay. As players progress, a slew of new quests are unlocked, including assassination and timed vehicle pursuits ending in dramatic shootouts and explosive car chases. Execute with deadly head shots or charged explosives, and rack up points for precision-timed vehicular power slides, lofty jumps, and supercharged velocity. Multipliers and combos add bonus points to overall scores that will be immediately posted to the new online leaderboard system, providing extensive re-playability as players work to rise to the top of the ranks.
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 1940s and 1950s 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 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 MA 15+ by the Australian Classification Board and is currently available worldwide.
