Mafia III


Recommended Posts

Ziet er goed uit. Al heb ik nooit de oude Mafia's gespeeld heb ik het idee dat ze met de nieuwe studio een echt nieuwe game willen neerzetten.

De trailer ziet er echt gelikt uit al lijkt me die gerendered ipv echt gameplay. Bij deze het persbericht van Take Two die ook iets meldt over het plot:

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 5, 2015-- 2K today officially revealed Mafia III, the next installment in the popular series known for immersing players into a world of organized crime through rich narrative storytelling and beautifully crafted game worlds. Mafia III is being developed by Hangar 13, a new development studio under the 2K publishing label led by veteran game developer Haden Blackman. Mafia III will be available in calendar 2016 for Xbox One, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC.

"Mafia III continues the strong franchise tradition of a captivating story set in the treacherous and calculated world of organized crime," said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. "Mafia III captures Hangar 13's mantra of 'every player story is unique' through a cinematic narrative that responds to player choice."

Mafia III is set in a reimagined New Orleans in 1968, one of the most tumultuous years in American history. This version of New Orleans is bustling with activity, complete with era-inspired cars, fashion and music. During this turbulent time, a cloud of corruption hangs in the air and the city has become a haven for organized crime. The Italian mob controls illegal gambling, drugs, and prostitution, while corrupt police and politicians line their pockets with the proceeds.

Mafia III follows the story of Lincoln Clay, a disenfranchised Vietnam veteran, returning from combat and looking for a home and a place to belong. Orphaned as a child, Lincoln at last achieves a semblance of family with the city's black mob, finding the surrogate father and brother he has longed for. But when Lincoln's new family is betrayed and slaughtered by the Italian mob, he becomes fixated on revenge and wages a brutal war against the Italians, disrupting the balance of power in the seedy underworld of New Orleans. As the story progresses, Lincoln allies himself with other criminals and builds an empire and a new family of his own that transforms the city.

Throughout the riveting story of Mafia III, players choose their path to revenge and build their own crime empire using cunning, stalking and deception, or through overwhelming force and firepower. Mafia III combines the best of cinematic storytelling with a dynamic narrative structure that responds to player choices, set in a vibrant city that responds to Lincoln's actions.

"The Mafia franchise is known for its immersive sense of time and place, and for presenting compelling stories about life within organized crime," said Haden Blackman, studio head and creative director at Hanger 13. "In Mafia III, we are introducing players to an unexpected new anti-hero and an iconic city to explore, all within a hard-boiled drama set during one of the most turbulent years in American history."

Mafia III will be available in calendar 2016 for Xbox One, PlayStation®4 system and Windows PC. Mafia III is not yet rated by the ESRB.

2K is a wholly owned publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:TTWO).

Ziet er tof uit. Ben benieuwd hoe een mafia spel waar je niet als Italiaanse gangster aan de gang gaat uitpakt. Is dat trouwens Vito op de achtergrond, hij heeft er in ieder geval wel wat van weg..

Ik hoop dat het wat meer afgerond is als Mafia 2. Ik was echt een City of Lost Heaven fan en Mafia 2 begon ook goed, je zag echter wel dat men Mafia 2 maar "moest" publiceren en vele leuke elementen waren eruit gehaald of snel afgeraffeld.

Mafia II was meer een verhaal dan een game naar mijn mening laatst toen Mafia II gratis was op de Xbox 360 heb ik 'm weer opnieuw heb gespeeld had ik 'm binnen een dag uit, zeer sterk verhaal maar een volledige game kun je het eigenlijks niet noemen.

Vind het wel jammer dat ze een hele andere richting in slaan en niet meer in die Goodfellas/Godfather vibe verder gaan maar het zal zeker wel een vette game worden maar hoop deze keer wel op wat diverser gameplay dan het vorige deel en natuurlijk Free-roam!

Misschien willen ze in deze serie alle decennia doorlopen. Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven speelde zich af in de jaren '30. Mafia II was jaren '40 - '50. Mafia III = '60s - '70s. Ik kijk er wel naar uit, het lijkt een blaxploitation sfeertje te hebben als films als Shaft, Super Fly en The Mack.
