Mafia II Collector’s Edition Announced
This isn’t the first time I’ve mentioned my love of collector’s editions. I’ve got the things piled up around my desk like a scale mountain range.
I felt a sharp pain in my wallet when I heard today that Mafia II would have a Collector’s Edition. Not only is it a game that I have been waiting on for a while, the contents of the Collector’s Edition sound very cool. You can see them above, and here’s the list.
- Collectible SteelBookTM Casing: Brushed metallic SteelBook hard case with debossed logo containing two pieces of art featuring Vito and Joe, the stars of Mafia II.
- Made Man Pack: Free access to in-game downloadable pack that lets players get behind the wheel of two different luxury automobiles modeled after cars from the period. In addition, Vito will look the part with two new “made man” suits, including a vintage tux.
- Hardcover Art Book: Get to know the families of Empire Bay with a 100-page photo album-style art book that takes fans through the artistic design process of the game.
- Mafia II Orchestral Soundtrack: Immerse yourself in Empire Bay’s symphonic masterpiece with the Mafia II score recorded by the Prague FILMHarmonic Orchestra on CD.
- Map of Empire Bay: Get familiar with the neighborhoods and own the streets with a high quality, tear-resistant map depicting the 10 square miles of Empire Bay and all the hangout spots.
On top of all this, there are some really nice pre-order incentives, which you can peruse after the break.
You’ll be able to pre-order Mafia II ate Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, and Walmart.com. Whichever of these retailers you choose, you’ll get a special bonus with your pre-order. Here’s the list of those incentives:
- Vegas Pack (GameStop): Get a taste of old school Vegas in this new DLC pack from Mafia II. Bring a taste of Vegas to Empire Bay as you cruise through the town in two new cars with smooth handling and timeless lines. Vito shows his Vegas style in two new suits inspired by movies and music of the time.
- War Hero Pack (GameStop): The ’40s wouldn’t be complete without a war hero. Vito plays the role well in the War Hero DLC pack. Drive two military style vehicles and notice the superior handling in all weather conditions. Vito looks sharp in two new military outfits, including fatigues and a dress uniform.
- Renegade Pack (Amazon): Show off your inner renegade in this new DLC pack. Start with two new cars, one with the slick styling and tight handling of a small sports coupe and the other with the revved up engine of a ’50s hot rod. Outfit Vito in two new suits, including leather and lettermen’s jackets to fit his renegade persona.
- Greaser Pack (Best Buy): Free access to the in-game downloadable content pack that is all about speed. These two new hot-rod speedsters will win you pink slips every time. Pair them with two new outfits for Vito – a leather jacket with heavy boots, and a leather racing suit – and get your engines revving.
- $10 Gift Card (Walmart.com): Pre-order Mafia II at Walmart.com and receive a $10 Walmart e-gift card.
You can pre-order the Standard or Collector’s Edition ($69.99) of the game now at all of these retailers. Mafia II will be available on PC, PS3, and XBox 360, and will hit stores on August 24 in the US, and August 27 in Europe.
