Electronic Arts is making you an offer you can't refuse*. The company is releasing details on extra content add-ons for The Godfather II. The premium upgrade packs provide players with level-four weapons, an additional crew member equipped with four unique specialties, and two new multiplayer maps to make their family stronger as they fight to become the most powerful mob syndicate in America.
Here's the deal on the new downloads:
- The Pentangeli Map Pack: Contains the all-new Cuba multiplayer map and the Junkyard multiplayer map. (.75 / 540 points
- Level 4 Weapons Bundle: Download this collection to receive the Modern Dillinger, the .700 Magnum Impact, the Herzstopper, the MG-S1 Sniper Wolfe, and the Street Sweeper. ($4.00 / 320 points)
- Jack of All Trades: Download Jimmy Lira, the Jack of All Trades, to have this character in your family. Jimmy Lira starts out with the arsonist, engineer, medic, and safecracker specialties and comes equipped with a level 2 machine gun, the MP38. ($4.00 / 320 points)
- The Corleone Bundle (All of the above): Download the multiplayer map pack, the level 4 Weapons Bundle, and the Jack of All Trades (Jimmy Lira) crew member. ($10.00 / 800 points)
This content is available for the PlayStation 3 and 360 on April 23, 2009, two weeks after the game launches.
When EA released DLC for the first Godfather game in the form of virtual currency, many gamers were understandably angered and confused. It's good to see the company has worked out what things are worth paying for in terms of DLC and what things are just annoying.
