Even though 2K Games refused to confirm the game's existence, Amazon had accidentally revealed the existence of the Mafia II Platinum Edition
in a listing on March 24th. The listing was promptly removed, but the damage had been done.
Now, the game has finally been confirmed. Alongside the original game, the Platinum Edition includes all of the DLC released so far:
Play as Joe in this new add-on content. In this extension to the original story of Mafia II, Joe uncovers who had Vito sent to prison and what really went down with the Clemente family. In addition to the expanded story, players can explore new locations and get new cars and clothing in dozens of city-based quests. Plus, online leaderboards allow players to battle for the highest scores.
"Jimmy's Vendetta Pack"
Meet Jimmy, in this new downloadable pack. A gun for hire, Jimmy helped clean up other people’s messes – until he was betrayed by the people who hired him. Now it’s payback time. Many new city based missions and new locales give you plenty of reasons to head back to Empire Bay. For more replay action, work to outrank your friends as you rise up the leaderboard.
The Mafia II Greaser DLC pack is all about speed. These 2 new hot-rod speedsters will win you pink slips every time. Pair that with 2 new suits for Vito, one with leather jacket and heavy boots, the other a leather racing suit, and get ready to start your engines.
"War Hero Pack"
The 40s wouldn’t be complete without a war hero. Vito plays the role well in the War Hero DLC pack. Drive 2 military style vehicles and notice the superior handling in all weather conditions. Vito looks sharp in 2 new military inspired suits, including a full uniform and fatigues.
Show off your inner renegade in this new DLC pack. Start with 2 new cars, one with the slick styling and tight handling of a small sports coupe and the other with the revved up engine of a 50s hot rod. Outfit Vito in 2 new suits including leather and lettermen’s jackets to fit his renegade persona.
Get a taste of old school Vegas in this new DLC pack from Mafia II. Bring a taste of Vegas to Empire Bay as you cruise through the town in 2 new cars with smooth handling and timeless lines. Vito shows his Vegas style in 2 new suits.
The pack will also include the "Betrayal of Jimmy" DLC add-on, previously exclusive to the PS3.
Players take on Empire Bay through 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 arcade-style, city-based missions that keep Jimmy driving, shooting and rampaging through Empire Bay.
The Platinum Edition is already available at selected US retailers for a recommended retail price of $30. The game will be made available worldwide during April.
