EA Announces that The Godfather
II has Gone Gold

Experience the Ultimate Organized
Crime Game on April 7th

Electronic Arts Inc. today announced
that The Godfather II has gone gold. The Godfather II game from Electronic Arts
and Paramount Digital Entertainment will be available on April 7th in North
America and April 10th in Europe for the Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION 3, and PC.

The Godfather fiction endures
because it emphasizes the power of being a Don – running the family, pulling the
strings, outsmarting enemies – and The Godfather II game puts this power in the
player’s hands right from the start. On the eve of the Cuban revolution, a major
mob meeting in Havana takes a bloody turn and the Don of your family is killed.
Success breeds opportunity, so when Michael Corleone comes under investigation
by a Senate Committee on Organized Crime, the Corleone Family calls upon you to
reestablish its operation in New York and eventually expand into new
territories, Miami and Cuba, by any means necessary.

As a Don in the Corleone family, The
Godfather II lets the player carve out their own story of deception, betrayal,
and conquest in a 1960’s organized crime world. While at its heart The Godfather
II is an action game, it allows players to go beyond street life to roll up
their sleeves and get a feel for the challenges of running their own organized
crime family. Players will have to invest in their family, manage their
business, and even reach out to corrupt officials all of which is done through
the revolutionary Don’s View. The Don’s View is a 3D representation of the
player’s criminal empire, putting the player in the Don’s mindset; it allows
them to coordinate their family strategy, plan hits on rival made men, attack
enemy rackets, and much more. By letting players call the shots, The Godfather
II delivers the ultimate organized crime experience in both the single and
multiplayer* modes.

The Godfather II has been rated M
for Mature by the ESRB and 18+ for PEGI. Players who pre-order The Godfather II
at participating retailers worldwide will receive an exclusive crew member,
named Tommy Cipolla, to hire into their family.
