I'm not sure where everyone else stands on announcing post release DLC so close to a game's launch, but we're not fans of it, and it's sure to spark the same comments along the lines of "why wasn't this included in the game?"

Whatever your thoughts are on it, EA today announced their first batch of Godfather II DLC which will be available for download on April 23rd. The complete list of upgrade packs includes:

• 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

Godfather II is set for an April 7thand April 10th launch in North America and Europe respectively.

While it is possible the game was finished long enough ago for them to make a map, I'm sure they haven't had time to make all of this after finishing the game.
EA's at it again, holding content back from the retail game to sell as DLC and take even more money from us. This is exactly why I wont buy EA games anymore.

map pack should have been included, sounds like the second two things you can pick up along the way in the game and having them early on just makes the game easier, they did the same thing in GF1(weapon packs and in game money)

You'd have to be pretty stupid not to save yourself a bunch of money and just get all 3 in 1 package for 800MSP to be honest.

I am really getting pissed with all these companys putting DLC out right after the game. Its like they are too lazy to put it in the game before it comes out.

Microsoft needs to update their policy for DLC coming out a lil longer before the game just comes out!

So now instead of 60 bucks its 70 if you want the DLC!

This takes the piss, the games nor released yet but their taking about dlc to just scam us out of more money. Worst of all was Gears 2 with the map pack needed to be bought for the full 1000, these guy's are jerks.

I don't mind the "Dirty Money Whoring Bastards" we don't have to buy it. And with the exception of the map download they are just added perks for the game. Just like all of their Need for Speed games. You can wait and earn max nitro boost, or pay for it. You can wait and unlock level 4 weapons, or pay for it, and blast away from the start.

I wish more games would take this route... Imagine playing an RPG and being able to get a ring/necklace what have you at the beginning that offered unlimited mana/mp/magic etc..., or the ability to avoid random battles.

Plus Jack of All Trades seems like a great bonus to have at the start.

Ohhh look at me with the double post but I hit enter too soon.

MG-S1 Sniper Wolfe - OMG

Metal Gear Solid 1 - Sniper Wolfe, now that is awesome.

And if you don't know who Sniper Wolfe is from Metal Gear shame on you.

@17 - calm down fool.

If Godfather 2 takes as much time as the first installment, I'll just work through the game instead of buying all these upgrades. I'll think about the multiplayer map packs if there's a bunch of multiplayer achievements

Other than the MP maps EA does this with every game they usually call it "Time is Money" or something like that. I plan on getting the game but not the DLC, as I won't miss a couple of MP Maps. Resident Evil 5 was way worse IMO except it got delayed. You had to pay for new MP modes that should have been included on the disc. At least you get a decent discount if you buy them all.

@ Comment 24 - The Weapon Packs are not worthless crap, these are weapons you can't get in-game and are the most powerful. In GF1 I had the weapon pack and one of the guns could take out a car in two shots, so I'm definitely getting this stuff.

the thing is, despite this being blatant money grabbing by ea (bastards), enough people are still going to buy it anyway, thats why they do it.

soon they'll release a game, and all you can do is view the menu, and you have to buy all the levels, individually, for 800 msp each.

i might consider this, liked the first one, but ill wait till some more reviews.

Aside from holding back content, it just doesn't seem worth it. A few weapons, a bonus character and a few multiplayer map? I don't think so.

And before it's said, I don't think map packs are worth it in any game anyway.

Besides the two maps all that DLC is stuff you can get in the game. It' just classic EA pay us money if for some reason you're too lazy to unlock this shit yourself.

I really have no problem with it. The perks are nice additions to the game and I would probably purchase them. From what I understand the game has been done for sometime.

its 80kb because this content is already on the disc. EA is just making you pay for it to access it because they are perks. Its a scam, just like the first Godfather's game. Atleast you dont have to pay for in-game money (yet)

guys if thats what they are charging per item, they atleast give you the choice to buy it all for $10, the weapons sound cool though bringing back a silenced pistol that wasn't silenced is stupid

If I remember correctly, I did read something about free DLC (multiplayer maps/modes). Obviously this was just a load of s*** from EA?

I feel like cancelling my pre-order now. Another GF game, and another "pay for your weapons" DLC.

well if anyone actually looked at the game before bashing it you would see that you can get everything except for the multiplayer maps in game. hey put it there because some people dont want to unlock everything which to me is fine. f you dont want to invest in the game then they have a right to charge you for your laziness. But because you read the title of the story only you start acting like little b1tches
