∞ Mafia II headed to Mac in December

Feral Interactive on Thursday announced plans to release Mafia II: Director’s Cut for Mac on December 1, 2011. Mafia II Director’s Cut includes the original game and all of its add-on packs and downloadable content (DLC). It will cost $39.99 and will be available for download via various sites including the Mac App Store.

Mafia II tells the story of Vito Scaletta, a Sicilian immigrant in post World War II America who becomes a member of a powerful mob family. You guide Vito on his way from lowly foot soldier to made man as you encounter shoot-outs, hand-to-hand combat, and realistic driving, all set in the backdrop of 1940s and 50s-era America, complete with an authentic period soundtrack.

The Director’s Cut version includes arcade-style missions and a separate eight-hour campaign that chronicles the story of Vito’s childhood friend Joe Barbaro, answering some questions that remain at the end of Mafia II.

The game is rated M for Mature by the ESRB. System requirements call for a 2.0 GHz Intel Mac with at least 4 GB RAM, Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later and 256 MB graphics memory. Some video card requirements also apply, so visit the Web site for details.
