Nothing like some John Lee Hooker playing in the background to get you worked up for a game that has been dangled in front of us for well over two years now. With all those "boom boom"s and some "bang bang"s playing, it gets you properly revved up to play the sequel to the popular mobster franchise, Mafia II. After all this time of teasing us with the sequel, it looks like 2K Games will finally be releasing the game in the second half of this year.
The trailer above seems to be setting up some of the plotline and characters for the story that will be in the game. I'm just happy to see the 40s and 50s era guns, cars, and clothing throughout the trailer. Nothing like car chases in old vehicles with tommy guns blazing in the background to set the scene. Mafia II will be your standard third-person sandbox-based shooter in which you play a member of the mob in a post-WWII fictional city called Empire Bay. The game will have a robust main storyline along with option quests and side missions and plenty of other things to do throughout the city.
The game should be releasing on the Xbox 360, Playstion 3, and on the PC sometime this Fall. I'm sure we'll see more of it at E3 like we did last year, but until then enjoy the trailer.
