Story-based Mafia II DLC announced

Joe Barbaro gets his moment in the spotlight.

A story-based downloadable add-on for gangster game Mafia II will be released later this year, 2K Games has announced.

Joe's Adventures, the third Mafia II add-on, will be available to download from the PlayStation Store for PS3, Xbox Live Marketplace for Xbox 360 and... The internet for PC.

The player character is Joe Barbaro, Vito Scaletta's best friend. You assume control during the time Vito spends in prison. We're promised a "dramatic storyline" with "intense arcade-style" gameplay.

The DLC will open up several new areas in Empire Bay, including a train station, the cathouse, a boat yard, a lakefront and some new buildings. Sounds lovely.

New items are up for grabs, such as new clothing, collectibles and more classic forties and fifties music.

Optional city-based quests are the focus of the arcade gameplay. There's a points-based system that allows you to move up the ranks on the online leaderboard with combos and multiplier bonuses.

No pricing details were revealed.

Eurogamer gave the 2K Czech-developed title 4/10 in August.
