2K Games have once again partnered with Valve to include Valve’s ever popular Steamworks with their upcoming gangster sequel Mafia II. In addition, 2K has also announced that a standard edition and deluxe edition of the game are now available for pre-order through various digital retailers such as Steam.
The Digital Deluxe Edition includes a number of bonuses such as the Made Man downloadable content pack, which comes with two luxury cars and two “made man” suits, a digital art book, orchestral soundtrack and a digital map of the game’s Empire Bay. But best of all, if you pre-order either digital version of the game, you’ll be able to instantly download the original Mafia for free.
As for the Steamworks integration, it means PC gamers can expect all of the trappings the service has to offer such as auto-updating, achievements, stats, DLC and more, which is nice.
Anyone take advantage of this pre-order offer? Mafia is really fantastic, and being able to play it for free is an offer you can't...well, you know.
