Mafia II demo due out in August

Settling all of the formats' business.

2K Games has announced that a Mafia II demo will be released in August.

The game itself is out on 27th August and 2K's tweet said that the demo would be for all formats.

"It's official! A Mafia II demo is headed your way on PS3, 360, and PC this August. Stay tuned for an exact date!"

Mafia II is an open-world action-adventure with a difference - it's more of a period drama with a Grand Theft Auto-esque structure than a sandbox.

2K Czech has set out a serious story and keeps control of key ambient elements like the day-and-night cycle in order to accentuate the narrative.
