Ever wonder what Joe Barbaro and the rest of the mafia were up to while Vito Scaletta was learning his melee fighting in prison? The upcoming Mafia II
DLC, Joe’s Adventures
, will provide just that missing portion of the storyline when it releases on November 23rd on Xbox Live, the PlayStation Store and the PC for 800 MS points and $9.99, respectively.
In the meantime, here is a deeper look at what the DLC will be like with new screenshots and a gameplay video released by 2K today. From the looks of the video there will be more missions requiring driving and shooting, as well as some sneaking (which is my favorite).
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, 20 new Playboy 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.
