For many players, including me, this news is the most astonishing news of this month. Coming from Online retailer Play-Asia, which has caused quite a stir in the gaming communities by listing Mafia III for both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (PC???).
This news was first seen by a user at NeoGAF, if we see the detail of that news which has been leaked and still a rumor that, the game will feature car chases, hand-to-hand combat, intense gunplay and an engrossing gameplay experience set in a gangster setting. Sound like a Mafia II to me it would feature better graphics and better gameplay. For now everything is a rumor so take this news with of salt we are still waiting for the official announcement from 2K Games.
- Action-Packed Mafia 3 Gameplay: Take part in heart-stopping car-to-car chases, visceral hand-to-hand combat and intense gunplay, all of which come together to form a deep and engrossing gameplay experience
- Epic Gangster Story: Inspired by iconic mafia drama, the compelling characters and cinematic presentation will pull players into the allure and impossible escape of life in the Mafia
- Immersive World and Period: Enter the world of Empire City, World War II is raging in Europe and the architecture, cars, music and clothing all echo the period. As time passes, hot rod cars, 50s fashion and some of the era
- Soundtrack Reflects the Mood of the Era: Players will be immersed in the Golden Era of America as Mafia III features tracks from some of the era’s most influential artists
Apart from today’s leaks there were also lots of rumors that 2K Games’ latest studio Hangar 13 – led by Star Wars developer Haden Blackman – will be working on the Mafia sequel. If this new is true, then we will be able to see the entry of this game on the market in 2016.
As mentioned above rumors of this game were murmuring around the internet from a very long time, although Play-Asia leaks have had a pretty strong turn out and this is the reason that I’m now excited about this and it seems like Mafia III is certainly happening.
