Now unlike the movie, the first videogame based on Francis Ford Coppola’s ‘The Godfather’ was, to be fair, not the best. Well now EA have dropped some details on the game’s sequel.

Currently set to be released in Feburary 2009 ‘The Godfather II’ is a combination of a GTA style action game with some RTS elements dubbed ‘The Don’s View’, which will allow players to see the whole city and what’s going on, amongst other things.

Speaking of locations, the new game will not just feature 1960’s NYC, but will also feature Florida and Cuba.

Kotaku’s Brian Crecente gives out some info on the new ‘Don’s View’ feature:

To help players manage their empire, The Godfather II introduces “The Don’s View” – an innovative strategy meta-game that allows players to oversee the entire world as they grow the family business. Using the Don’s View, players will be able to build, defend and expand their crime rings, while keeping an eye on the movements and plans of the rival families. Players will also learn to master the business of organized crime by building a family of Made Men, hiring crew, handing out orders, and promoting their best men up the ranks.

Sounds like EA could turn the franchise around with this one. I just hope that the mix of GTA and RTS dosen’t make the game too compliacated and generally a bit crap to play. I have hope.
