Electronic Arts is bringing the Corleone family back in Godfather II on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, the sequel to the 2006 Godfather videogame.
After being promoted by Michael Corleone to Don of New York, players expand to new cities, as they build up their families through extorting businesses, monopolizing illegal crime rings and defeating new families in an effort to become the most powerful mob family in America.
An new feature, The Don’s View, adds an RTS element to the open sandbox world. Players will be able to oversee multiple cities and manage their crime rings in accordance with the movement of rival families. Players can also pick up Made Men, hire crew, hand out orders, and promote their best men up the ranks.
BlackHand control has been expanded with a new combo system, pressure tactics and executions. Players will be able to put together their own hands-on CPU crew with specialties ranging from demolitions, arson, engineering, first-aid and more. This crew can be commanded to go off on their own missions in addition to tagging along for a beat down.
Godfather II should beat its way into stores in February 2009 with a simultaneous release on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
