2K Games has announced today that on release day, there will be a couple DLC packages available for download. The Betrayal of Jimmy will be available exclusively for the PlayStation 3 and will be available as a free download to those who purchase the game brand new with a voucher code. For those who don’t, it will be available for $9.99 (rough estimate- £7.99).
The Betrayal of Jimmy will take players into an alternate perspective of the mob through the eyes of Jimmy, a mercenary. Jimmy is the guy the other guys call when they need to finish the job. The Betrayal of Jimmy features dozens of intense newly created arcade-style, city-based missions that keep Jimmy driving, shooting and rampaging through Empire Bay. Missions will unlock as they progress, activating a slew of assassination and timed vehicle missions ending in dramatic shootouts and explosive car chases. Players will rack up points for performance, power slides, and skill shots. The scores will be immediately posted to the new leaderboard system, providing extensive re-playability, as players work to rise to the top of the ranks. Get to know Empire Bay – the executioner’s way.
The other DLC available on day one will be available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, called Jimmy’s Vendetta. In this, players will get their hands dirty helping Jimmy clean up other people’s messes. New city-based missions and locales will give players many new reasons to head back to Empire Bay. Jimmy’s Vendetta will offer more replay action and allow players to outrank friends as they rise to the top of the leaderboard. Details on pricing and availability for Jimmy’s Vendetta will be revealed at a later date.
Below are some brand new screenshots of the upcoming game. It’s slated for an August release here in the UK.
