Born the son of a poor immigrant, Vito is a beaten down Italian American who is trying to secure his piece of the American Dream. Looking to escape the life of poverty that consumed his childhood, Vito is soon swayed by the lure of power and wealth that a life of Organized Crime can bring. A petty criminal his whole life, Vito, along with his childhood friend, Joe, will descend into the world of Organized Crime. Together, they will work to prove themselves to the Mob as they try to make their names on the streets of a cold and unforgiving city. Mafia 2 immerses you in the mob underworld of a fictitious late 1940's / early 1950's scenario. The game engages you in a cinematic Hollywood movie experience in a living, breathing city, fusing high-octane gunplay with white knuckle driving and an engaging narrative. The Collector's Edition features a collectible SteelBook Casing, access to the in-game downloadable Made Man Pack, an artbook, the Mafia II Orchestral Soundtrack and a map of Empire Bay.
