We wake up with a horse head in our bed, new Mafia II screens

All of the buzz may be surrounding Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto IV, but 2K Games doesn’t want you to forget about Mafia II. The publisher has reminded us about the open-world 1950s gangster title by sending us a small batch of impressive looking screenshots for the title. 

Honestly, it’s going to take a lot to top what Rockstar are offering with GTA IV, but I suppose visuals like these are a step in the right direction. Mafia II supposedly features an unprecedented amount of interaction for an open-world title, including an option to act “violently” with objects in the environment. Imagine that option with bottles and chairs, and I think you get the picture. 

Mafia II is set for a simultaneous release on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. Hopefully we’ll be done trawling around Liberty City by then.
