The word about the Mafia II “Director’s Cut” package has been on the street for a while, but now 2K Games has made it official: the publisher is indeed putting out an all DLC-inclusive, cheaper ($30) version of the title across all three of its platforms, the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
On the consoles, Mafia II "Director’s Cut" will receive the platform’s respective best seller branding, which changes its name to Mafia II Greatest Hits on the PS3 and Mafia II Platinum Hits on Xbox 360. The PC version is the only one that’ll be actually referred to as "Director’s Cut" on the packaging, but all three will combine the same content: the core game, its three content-lean downloadable add-ons, and its four, once retail-exclusive “style” DLC packs.
== TEASER ==Just as a refresher, here’s the boilerplate on all the DLC, provided via 2K Games:
- The Betrayal of Jimmy: Players take on Empire Bay through an alternate perspective of the mob through the eyes of Jimmy, a mercenary. Jimmy is the guy the other guys call when they need to finish the job. The Betrayal of Jimmy features dozens of intense arcade-style, city-based missionsthat keep Jimmy driving, shooting and rampaging through Empire Bay.
- Jimmy's Vendetta: Once the mob's most effective ally, Jimmy is now its greatest enemy. Fueled by rage, Jimmy takes on Italian and Irish mobsters in a slew of unlockable city quests, including assassination and timed vehicle pursuits ending in dramatic shootouts.
- Joe’s Adventures: Play as Joe Barbaro as he rampages through Empire Bay in the wake of Vito Scaletta's prison sentence. Joe must uncover the traitor who betrayed Vito while overcoming the challenges of moving up the ranks in the mob.
- Four Style Packs [Ed. Once retailer-exclusive] including Vegas, Renegade, Greaser and War Hero - each with two cars and two suits for in-game use.
