Mafia II is scheduled for release on August 24, 2010. Just announced on the Official Playstation Blog, there will be a free opening day DLC pack named The Betrayal of Jimmy.
The pack will add 25 new missions and will be centered around a different character than the main storyline. New PS3 versions of the game will include a voucher for download on release day. If you buy Mafia II used, this DLC pack will be available for download from the PS Store for 9.99.
