Mafia II picks Steamworks as its enforcer
2K Games announced today that Mafia II will be using Steamworks as its DRM on the PC.
As well as protecting the game against piracy, Steamworks will lend all its services to Mafia II adding achievements, auto-updates and DLC.
Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K Games said: "Using Steamworks to power Mafia II has been a great benefit for 2K Games and our development team. It's meant that we can spend more time creating content and a great experience for our customers because we know that Steam and Steamworks are enabling these important features within the game."
Valve's Gabe Newell added: "Mafia II is joining Sid Meier's Civilization V as the next title to use Steamworks from 2K Games. Our focus for Steam is on building services that create value for our customers and for creators, and Mafia II, with its all-new game engine and inclusion of Steamworks, is a great example of that."
Mafia II is out for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 on August the 24th in North America and August 27th in Europe.
