Electronic Arts to launch new multiplayer mode for Godfather II

MUMBAI: Electronic Arts will be launching a new multiplayer mode, called Don Control, to The Godfather II game. This new mode will be available as a free downloadable patch when the game releases on 7 April in North America and 10 April in Europe.

Don Control takes the “Think Like a Don” strategic gameplay into an online environment and allows players to build a family, command them in battle and view the action from a bird’s eye view above.

Don Control introduces an additional layer of gameplay on top of the four multiplayer modes and six maps already available in the game and invites players to compete to see who is the ultimate Don of Dons. Players can now challenge one another in 16-player battles for their in-game currency from the single-player game.

The Godfather II takes the open-world genre in a new direction by blending the furious combat of being a mobster with the strategic thinking of being a Don both offline and online. As a Don in the Corleone family, The Godfather II lets the player carve out their own story of deception, betrayal, and conquest in a 1960’s organized crime world.

The Godfather II game from Electronic Arts and Paramount Digital Entertainment will be available on the Xbox 360 videogame and entertainment system, PlayStation3 computer entertainment system, and PC. The game has been rated M for Mature by the ESRB and 18+ for PEGI. Players who pre-order The Godfather II at participating retailers worldwide will receive an exclusive crew member, named Tommy Cipolla, to hire into their family.
