Mafia II heats up summer with an August release

2K Games has announced today that 2K Czech’s Mafia II will finally ship for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on August 24, 2010.

Set in a 1940/1950s-esque era, Mafia II puts players in the shoes of Vito Scaletto – the Italian-American son born of a poor immigrant family. With his lifelong friend, Joe, he descends into the world of organized crime, or the mafia. They dream of becoming made men and living the easy life.

The official box art has been released alongside the announcement. Check out high-res shots at the gallery.
