2K Games Unleashes Mafia II

2K Games has announced that their open-world crime saga game Mafia II is now available. Set in Empire Bay during the 1940’s and 50’s, Mafia II gives you the chance to get into the world of organized crime in a huge sandbox environment.

“Mafia II is what gamers want in a mob game – the marriage of a compelling story with edge-of-the-seat action and lifelike characters that immerse players in an epic entertainment experience,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “When you add in a setting that accurately reflects a period in history that has never been rendered so beautifully, it sets a new benchmark not just for the action-crime genre, but for any game set in the real world with a rich story to tell.”

Mafia II is rated M for Mature.
