Electronic Arts and Paramount Digital Entertainment announced today plans for post-release premium upgrade packs for the brutal Godfather 2 mob style title, due out early next week.

The upgrade packs will be available for all digital currency money types on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network on Tuesday April 23rd, two weeks after the release of the title itself.

The paid DLC will include new and powerful weapons, an addition multi-faceted character Jimmy Lira, and the Pentangeli Map Pack, which includes the Cuban and Junkyard multiplayer maps.

Full details below.

  • The Pentangeli Map Pack: Download for the all-new Cuba multiplayer map and the Junkyard multiplayer map.
    • $6.75 / 540 points
  • Level 4 Weapons Bundle: Download this collection to receive the Modern Dillinger, the .700 Magnum Impact, the Herzstopper, the MG-S1 Sniper Wolfe, and the Street Sweeper.
    • $4.00 / 320 points
  • Jack of All Trades: Download Jimmy Lira – the Jack of All Trades to have this character in your family. Jimmy Lira starts out with the arsonist, engineer, medic, and safecracker specialties and comes equipped with a level 2 machine gun – the MP38.
    • $4.00 / 320 points
  • The Corleone Bundle (All of the above): Download the multiplayer map pack, the level 4 Weapons Bundle, and the Jack of All Trades (Jimmy Lira) crew member.
    • $10.00 / 800 points

In addition to these premium packs, as we previously reported, a free launch day “Don Control” multiplayer mode will be available to add to the mob experience.‚ ‚  I must say, the commitment to DLC EA is showing is inspiring, but the idea of gamers buying upgrades is a bit of a detractor, at least for me.
