A racket indeed: Tons of Godfather II DLC announced

With the game not even on store shelves, Electronic Arts has revealed a slew of downloadable content for the upcoming The Godfather II on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Called “Premium Upgrade Packs,” the content includes multiplayer maps, weapon upgrades, maxed out crew members, and other crap people can complain should have shipped on the disc. 

  • The Pentangeli Map Pack: Download for the all-new Cuba multiplayer map and the Junkyard multiplayer map ($6.75 / 540 points)
  • Level 4 Weapons Bundle: Download this collection to receive the Modern Dillinger, the .700 Magnum Impact, the Herzstopper, the MG-S1 Sniper Wolfe, and the Street Sweeper. ($4.00 / 320 points)
  • Jack of All Trades: Download Jimmy Lira – the Jack of All Trades to have this character in your family. Jimmy Lira starts out with the arsonist, engineer, medic, and safecracker specialties and comes equipped with a level 2 machine gun – the MP38. ($4.00 / 320 points)
  • The Corleone Bundle (All of the above): Download the multiplayer map pack, the level 4 Weapons Bundle, and the Jack of All Trades (Jimmy Lira) crew member. ($10.00 / 800 points)

The content will become available on April 23, two weeks after the game’s April 7 release date.

I’ve been playing The Godfather II for a few days now (for our review, which hits on April 7), and I have to admit that some of this stuff looks like it could be useful. Jimmy Lira sounds like a total badass, and someone I’d want in my family. But am I ready to pay $4.00 for him? Not so sure. I would get a discount if I bought the bundle, though… I do have three weeks to think about this.

OK, I’m done thinking. No.
