Shack PSA: Mafia 2 Demo Available Today (For Most)

Attention all wise guys and gals, a demo for the multiple era-spanning sandbox action-adventure Mafia 2 is now available for download on the PC and Xbox 360, with the PS3 version being added later today.

Xbox Live Gold subscribers can add the demo to their download queue via, while PC users can currently find the demo on Steam or FileShack.

PlayStation 3 users in the UK who are not currently subscribed to PlayStation Plus will have to wait 24 hours to download the demo, exclusive to those who have signed up for Sony's new premium service. The demo will be made available for all North American PlayStation 3 owners later today, regardless of PSN account status.

Although the game runs from the 1940s to the 1950s, the demo features a slice of gameplay in the 50s during the "birth of cool" and the dawn of rock-n-roll. The level features lead character Vito and his two ally thugs Joe and Henry on a quest to find and kill a mobster known as "The Fat Man."

Based on his nickname, "finding" him might not be the issue and waiting for him to die from excessive ice cream consumption is out of the question. No, you'll have to kill "The Fat Man" with some kind of 50s-era weapon.

Mafia 2 is scheduled for release on the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 on August 24 in North America.

    I had fun with it. I'm glad I preordered it. I'm even more glad that I upgraded to the collector's edition.

      Short, but really good. We all know what will happen right after where the demo stops. =)

      Also I don't get why people want a 10 minute hack. It's only a part of the city and I can't keep myself from shooting some people after 20 seconds anyway. And the cops WILL get you, just like in the first one.

        Indeed. The Skate 3 invisible wall hack was a good one to have, though. Basically it took away the space limitations so you could see more of the area. It was fun.

      Meanwhile I'm glad I pre-ordered it before they jumped the AU price up from $50 to $80 USD!
