EA's The Godfather II is expected to ship for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on April 7, and on day one, the publisher plans to give away a free multiplayer mode, Don Control. However, EA also has some premium content that will be available further down the pipe. The publisher announced today that three items can be purchased through Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network beginning April 23.

Online multiplayer gamers can pick up the Pentangeli Map Pack for $6.75 (540 Microsoft points). The pack contains two new multiplayer maps--one set in Cuba and the other set in a junkyard. For $4 (320 Microsoft points), players can upgrade five different weapons, including the Modern Dillinger and the .700 Magnum Impact, to level-four power. Also available for $4 (320 Microsoft points), players can hire henchman Jimmy Lira, who begins his criminal career with the arsonist, engineer, medic, and safecracker specialties.

Alternatively, gamers can pick up all three premium DLC packs as part of the $10 (800 Microsoft points) Corleone Bundle. For more on the game, check out GameSpot's previous coverage of The Godfather II.

Nope M$ does force PC and console gamers to pay for DLC. (The crappy Live bullsh*t on computers proves this fact!) While the games that support the Steam beater (sarcasm intended). Are few and far between. Its still annoying to buy a game (or pirate...... But that was because, I'd already brought the game on my PS3). And then have to pay some more money, to M$. Also M$ are pretty much fuc..ed . They have no 1st party developers and there consistently losing there 3rd party exclusives. Also 360 hardly has any real exclusives. Most, come out on PC. Unless your just counting consoles (which is redundant). There's like 3?

This game looks interesting. I'll play the demo first, but it will probably be a buy.

Microsoft forces every game update, that would otherwise be free on the PC, including those Xbox 360 cross-platform titles that are on the PC, to say hello for hundreds of Microsoft points. Companies that have asked for their DLC to be free have been ignored (e.g. Behemoth, Valve, and Bethesda).

@WizengamotX I don't think its microsoft. EA chooses what items will be DLC they just abide by MS rules which possibly should be changed

Haha, so the free "patch" is just bait to get us to forget about all the DLC they offer that SHOULD be in the game and isn't.

I can't tell whether or not this is a joke; seriously, Microsoft has gone too far with the DLC pricing.

Totally thought (or at least hoped) that the premium DLC stuff was an April Fools gag when I saw the press release this morning...
