Mafia 2 Coming in August

2K Czech's open-world mob story Mafia II will be released in North America on August 24, publisher 2K Games announced today, then come to Europe on August 27.


Hitting PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the twice-delayed title tells of one Vito Scaletta's entry into the Empire Bay mafia and his bloody rise through its ranks.

Those attending PAX East this week can get their hands on Mafia II, much as our Brian did during GDC. Us poor slobs stuck at home can take the opportunity to revist last year's 15-minute narrated walkthrough video and imagine we're in control of Vito.
