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.
