It was announced today that The Godfather II will have free DLC avaliable on the day of release offering a new multiplayer mode.
The new mode, called Don Control introduces an additional layer of gameplay on top of the four multiplayer modes and six maps already available in the game and invites players to compete to see who is the ultimate Don of Dons.
Players can challenge one another in 16-player battles for their in-game currency from the single-player game. As a Don online, players can recruit others to join their family by giving them a cut of the profits. But if a player loses as Don, the in-game currency they wagered will be removed in their single-player campaign and their empire can come crumbling down.
I don't really see why they can't just put it onto the disk if they're willing to release it on launch for free anyway. Oh well, free is free.
