Hot on the heels of the release of Jimmy’s Vendetta, 2k has announced that you will soon be able to step into the shoes of Vito’s best friend and partner in crime, Joe Barbaro.
Take control of Joe while Vito was (SPOILER ALERT) in prison. Drive around, be a goon, sleep with broads, eat pizza!! Take note, this DLC is story based and won’t just focus on arcade style action like the Jimmy DLC.
Here’s the lowdown from 2k:
Joe’s Adventures offers an engaging narrative and allows players to explore new locations, including a train station, the cathouse, a boat yard, a seasonally changing lakefront and some never-before-seen buildings in Empire Bay. This exciting new chapter in the Mafia II saga includes new clothing, collectibles and even more classic 40’s and 50’s music. In addition to the story-based missions, Joe’s Adventures opens up a slew of optional city-based quests packed with arcade action gameplay and a points-based system that allows players to move up the ranks on the online leaderboard through combos and multiplier bonuses. Deadly executions by head shot or charged explosives rack up points, and precision-timed vehicular power slides, lofty jumps and feats of supercharged speed maintain the adrenaline-charged fun for extensive replayability.
This looks like another no-brainer purchase for fans of Mafia II. Joe’s Adventures will be out soon on all platforms!! Also, Don’t forget to check out the Ripten Video Review of Mafia II!!
