May 26, 2010 Written by Christopher Gordon-Douglas

Mafia II is the upcoming sequel to the hit success Mafia: City of Lost Heaven, being developed by 2K’s Czech division. The game focuses on sandbox-styled gameplay with the game map spanning 10 square miles between the American states of Chicago and Detroit. Despite the first installment in the series not receiving a collectors edition, Mafia II will not be following suit as today 2K Games announced that the game will receive a collectors edition with plenty of goodies.

Each collectors edition will feature a metallic SteelBook case, a hardback art book, a soundtrack and map. And as if that wasn’t enough select UK retailers will offering free downloadable content to those who pre-order the Collector’s Edition, the DLC will consist of two new luxury cars and two suits.

The 2K president Christoph Hartmann had this to say about the news:

The first Mafia title was a critical success, and we are excited to deliver an epic sequel to fans of the game and of Mafia  entertainment. By offering downloadable content and special editions of Mafia II, we are able to show our appreciation for those guys wise enough to reserve their copies early.

The price that will accompany this has not been revealed, but Mafia II is currently scheduled for a release on August 27th.

A new trailer was recently released for Mafia II, showcasing what fans can expect from the forthcoming thriller.
