2K Games announced today that gamers who want to try out Mafia II before they buy it will get the chance to do just that with a demo to be released on August 10th. In the demo, set in 1950s Empire City, gamers will play the "Buzzsaw" level. In "Buzzsaw", players will be tasked with taking out "The Fat Man" as Vito Scaletta (the main character) and two of his friends. This small taste of 2K's upcoming crime game promises to showcase "vibrant edge-of-your-seat action, as well as a slice of the expansive city of Empire Bay in the colorful era."
Mafia II will be released on August 24 in North America, August 26 in Australia and August 27 internationally for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
