2K clears up Mafia II demo release

2K’s shot out the official word on that MCV-advertised Mafia II demo which, as now clarified, will be released on all PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 simultaneously; on August 10th.

Taking place during a summer in the ’50s, the demo — which carries the “Buzzsaw” title — sees player-controlled Vito and friends sent after a mobster known as The Fat Man; a mission during which “vibrant edge-of-your-seat action, as well as a slice of the expansive city of Empire Bay in the colorful era” will be put on display.

The game itself follows a few weeks later; August 24 in North America, August 27 in Europe.
