The Betrayal of Jimmy will be available as a free download on the day the game launches exclusively for players worldwide who purchase a new copy of Mafia II for the PS3. The second DLC pack, Jimmy's Vendett*, will be available soon after the launch of Mafia II and will offer players a different arcade style of gameplay with new missions and leaderboard competition on the Ps3, Xbox 360 and PC.
The Betrayal of Jimmy downloadable content, available exclusively for the PlayStation 3 system, will be accessible for free with voucher codes included with each new PlayStation 3 copy of the game, or purchasable beginning on the day of Mafia II's launch through the PlayStation Network for $9.99.
The Betrayal of Jimmy will take players into 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 newly created arcade-style, city-based missions that keep Jimmy driving, shooting and rampaging through Empire Bay. Missions will unlock as they progress, activating a slew of assassination and timed vehicle missions ending in dramatic shootouts and explosive car chases. Players will rack up points for performance, power slides, and skill shots. The scores will be immediately posted to the new leaderboard system, providing extensive re-playability, as players work to rise to the top of the ranks. Get to know Empire Bay - the executioner's way.
In Jimmy's Vendetta, which will be available for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, players will get their hands dirty helping Jimmy clean up other people's messes. New city-based missions and locales will give players many new reasons to head back to Empire Bay. Jimmy's Vendetta will offer more replay action and allow players to outrank friends as they rise to the top of the leaderboard. Details on pricing and availability for Jimmy's Vendetta will be revealed at a later date.
Mafia 2 is due for release on 27 August, 2010.
