Electronic Arts and Paramount Digital Entertainment have confirmed that The Godfather II will be released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC in February 2009.
Set in the 1960’s, the upcoming action sequel has players expanding their crime empire through New York, Cuba and Florida through extortion, defeating rival gangs and various other illegal activities.
As reported earlier this week, the game features a new perspective known “Don’s View”, allowing players to zoom out to a strategic map of the surrounding boroughs giving you the opportunity to spy on your competition, as well as plan heists and manage resources.
Furthermore, the infamous Blackhand control scheme from the original Godfather game will make a return, incorporating an all-new combo system, pressure tactics and executions.
Players will be required to fight alongside a handpicked crew comprised of various family members, each one possessing their own unique abilities, including demolitions, arson, engineering and first-aid.
Stay tuned for more on The Godfather II in the near future.
