The Mafia II Demo Goes Online Today

2K Games is giving gamers that “try before you buy” option that we cheap bastards love to bits. There newest action title Mafia II, has a playable demo that is available as of today on the PS3, PC, and Xbox 360.

With the game releasing later this month, most would say it’s not a day too late either. 2K urges contemplating fans to try the new demo. Sporting a unique ambience linked directly to its 1940s setting, Mafia II looks to be one hell of a game. Check out this excerpt from the advisory:

While the game spans two eras, the Mafia II demo invites gamers to dive into the “Buzzsaw” level, which takes place during the summer of the ‘50s – a time considered the “Birth of Cool”, and with it, rock ‘n’ roll, hot rods, and rebellious attitudes. In the demo, Vito Scaletta and his buddies, Joe and Henry, are sent to take out a mobster known as “The Fat Man”. This mission showcases the vibrant edge-of-your-seat action, era-evoking cars, memorable characters, and a snapshot of the expansive city of Empire Bay in this colorful era.

You’d be crazy not to at least try this title at the perfect price of free.  This is especially true for rabid fans that’ve been waiting for this game for months. Mafia II hits store shelves in America August 24th.
