The Godfather 2 Getting Multiplayer Mode Post-release

EA sent out word that a new multiplayer mode for The Godfather 2 will be released as a free downloadable patch right after the game’s release on April 7 in North America and April 10 in Europe.

Called “Don Control”, the mode will take the strategic gameplay of the title into an online environment where players build a family, command them in battle and view the action from a bird’s eye view from above. Here’s more:

Don Control introduces an additional layer of gameplay on top of the four multiplayer modes and six maps already available in the game and invites players to compete to see who is the ultimate Don of Dons. Players can now challenge one another in 16-player battles for their in-game currency from the single-player game. As a Don online, players can recruit others to join their family by giving them a cut of the profits. But if a player loses as Don, the in-game currency they wagered will be removed in their single-player campaign and their empire can come crumbling down.

The Godfather 2 is being released for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

Godfather 2 Delayed to April

Previously set for release this month, EA today announced a delayed release date for The Godfather II – April 7 in North America and April 10 in Europe.

It is in development for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
