Mafia II demo dated

Try before you buy.

A demo for upcoming gangster fest Mafia II will be available from 10th August, an advert in videogame trade magazine MCV has revealed.

The demo will be available on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. We're trying to find out what'll be in it.

The game's out 17 days later, on the 27th.

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.

Eurogamer went hands-on earlier this week, and survived to tell the tale. Full review is due soon.
