2K has confirmed the first DLC packs for Mafia II, despite one being outed earlier in the week.

The Betrayal of Jimmy will be available as a free download worldwide, and day one exclusively for players who own the PS3 version and enter the voucher code included with the game.

Players can also purchase the DLC for £6.29.

The Betrayal of Jimmy will take players into an alternate perspective of the mob through the eyes of Jimmy, a mercenary. Jimmy is the guy the other guys call when they need to finish the job. The Betrayal of Jimmy features dozens of intense newly created arcade-style, city-based missions that keep Jimmy driving, shooting and rampaging through Empire Bay. Missions will unlock as they progress, activating a slew of assassination and timed vehicle missions ending in dramatic shootouts and explosive car chases. Players will rack up points for performance, power slides, and skill shots. The scores will be immediately posted to the new leaderboard system, providing extensive re-playability, as players work to rise to the top of the ranks. Get to know Empire Bay – the executioner’s way.

The second DLC pack, Jimmy’s Vendetta, will be available soon after launch, and will offer players a different arcade style of play with new missions and leaderboard competition on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

In Jimmy’s Vendetta, which will be available for PlayStation 3 system, Xbox 360 and PC, players will get their hands dirty helping Jimmy clean up other people’s messes. New city-based missions and locales will give players many new reasons to head back to Empire Bay. Jimmy’s Vendetta will offer more replay action and allow players to outrank friends as they rise to the top of the leaderboard.

Details on pricing and availability for Jimmy’s Vendetta will be revealed at a later date.

Mafia II releases on August 24 and 27 in the US and UK for PS3, 360 and PC.
