Joe Breaks Out on His Own Adventures in Next Mafia II DLC

The two Mafia II DLC packs so far have been good for mindless mobster fun (my review for Jimmy’s Vendetta will be going up later today), but those looking to further explore the game’s cinematic narrative need look no further than Joe’s Adventures, a third DLC add-on due out later this year for all three platform versions (PC, PS3 and Xbox 360).

Joe’s Adventures stars Vito’s oaf of a best friend, Joe Barbaro, and will extend the game’s storyline by showing the events that transpire during Vito’s stint in the slammer. The DLC will introduce new locations around Empire Bay, including a “train station, the cathouse, a boat yard, a seasonally changing lakefront and some never-before-seen buildings,” as well as additional collectibles to hunt for, new clothing to try on and more classic 40’s/50’s tunes to make the dull vehicular navigation palatable.

Furthermore, Joe’s Adventures will also incorporate the free-roaming gameplay of the Betrayal of Jimmy and Jimmy’s Vendetta DLC packs, with optional side jobs tied in with the same arcade scoring system to be interspersed amongst the main story missions. Sounds like a winner to me!
