Electronic Arts has announced that it will add an extra multiplayer mode to The Godfather II in a free update when the game launches on April 10th.
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," says the press release.
The mode sounds like a form of real-time strategy, and supports 16 players. You'll be fighting for your currency from the single-player game, and can recruit other players to join your family for a cut of the profits.
The Godfather II will be released on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. More on the Godfather II gamepage.
