2K has big plans for E3, hires Playboy

Business before pleasure. 2K has a bunch of games lined up for their showing at E3 this year. To me the most notable are Mafia II and Civilization V. I had the pleasure of getting a peek at Civ V a bit back, and I can tell you they’ve made a lot of changes. It looks fantastic. More on that later.

Here’s 2K’s full E3 line-up:

  • Mafia II
  • Cid Meier’s Civilization V
  • Spec Ops: The Line
  • XCOM
  • NBA 2K11
  • NHL 2K11
  • New Carnival Games
  • Nickelodeon Fit

Now, the pleasure: the E3 2K booth will be hosting photo ops with Playboy magazine’s Playmates to promote their tie-in with Mafia II, which features more than 50 vintage Playboy mag covers. Two Playmates will be present at the booth each day. Attendees are encouraged to dress up in period clothing (1940s America) and get their picture taken. Cyber Girl of the Year Jo Garcia will be available for autographs at the booth as well.

We might check that out at E3. If you know your Playmates, hit the jump to see who’s coming to the show.
