Mafia II demo confirmed for August

2K Games has confirmed that a demo for 2K Czech’s Mafia II will be released this August.

“It’s official! A Mafia II demo is headed your way on PS3, 360, and PC this August,” the publisher revealed in a tweet. “Stay tuned for an exact date!”

I went hands on with the latest build of the game not long ago, and was most impressed by both the delivery and content of the game’s dialogue. With the gameplay feeling similar to other open-world shooters, I’m crossing my fingers that the narrative helps the title stand out.

Mafia II is slated to hit shelves on August 27; let’s cross our fingers it comes before then.
