Casting call mentions three gangsters: Franklin, Tony and Mickey While there is no specific mention of it, if Mafia 3 is set in Louisiana, the game may feature an open world New Orleans.
Is it gonna be next gen only? I hope so
At this point it's guaranteed since the original was scrapped and they restarted the whole project. Looking at 2015 release at the earliest.
Problem is that Mafia 3 isn't being made by the original developers. Apparently 2K took the game away from them and gave it to a new 2K studio, and that new studio completely scrapped the game and restarted from scratch. Could end up a good game, but I'm highly skeptical. Right now with the descriptions of these 3 characters, they kinda seem like main characters, which tells me they're taking the 3 protagonist approach from GTA V. I don't want GTA set in the 40's, I want a real, proper Mafia game.
* Let me recruit my own crew * No health meter, if somebody in your crew dies, then so be it, you find somebody else. I think it would add to the realism. Any town would only have so many tough guys, or smart guys, or whatever so you would have to do research throughout the town to find the next guy. I want it to be more than Last gen hollow empty game + better graphics.
So kinda like the recruiting in Godfather 2?
Next gen pleasezzz
This game needs 3 things: 1)Story like in Mafia 1. Story must be very strong, powerful and dramatic. 2)Please... remove this hp regain and stupid cover system... dont make this casual game. 3)Don´t try to be GTA game. Really... Money and buy weapons is stupid. Mafia is about story, GTA is about freedom. Mafia > Mafia 2
Mafia 2 was amazing. The story, setting, graphics and atmosphere were all top notch, but I respect your opinion
Mafia 2 was good but original Mafia is better(but 99% N4G players never played it on PC). Why have Mafia 2 quality when you could have Mafia 1 quality? Why have game rated 8 out of 10 when you could have 10 out of 10?
Freakin' A! I can't wait!
The guy in the mirror lives in Louisiana.
Cool story bro coming through: Ethnically and linguistically NY and NOLA have a lot more in common than what you would think. This is for those confused as to why a mafia game would be taking place in the deep south fyi. For starters the same sort of immigrants settled there in the 19th century. This of course explains NOLA's history with La Cosa Nostra, going back to the 1850's. Also the yat dialect / accent (native to NOLA)bears many resemblances to the traditional NY accent. Either way nice to see a new locale for a mafia type game. NY and Chicago have been done to death.
Plenty of water to dump bodies
3 words NEXT GEN ONLY
It could work although it doesn't necessarily mean the game takes place in Loiusiana. They could be up and coming group that moves elsewhere to strike it big although I think Louisiana could be a novel and appropriate place for the game. The South is where a lot of liquor came from during Prohibition plus it is at the mouth of the Mississippi which would be a high traffic area (both important for a Mafia tie in). Plus the city just "fits" as it is seen as a more "loose" city than some due to how Mardi Gras paints it and the mix of French Quarter splendor, bourbon Street party scene, etc would fit a Mafia setting well. The fact it isn't entirely true doesn't change the fact it could work and work well. Plus we would likely see Gators as feeding someone to the fish is so cliche at this point. In all seriousness it could work either as the setting or as a starting point to go strike it rich elsewhere. I think it would be a cooler experience though if it stayed in the South as Chicago and NYC are more common settings in games. A fictious New Orleans could be amazing as Infamous proved. However New Orleans more in its prime and running rampant with Mafia influences could make it all its own.
True!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ! mafia 2 best game evvahhh! wish it was nyc or chicago though. or something like empire city.
This was published on here days ago this just time with a fan made image a altered casting information x)
Fuck yes I'm ready to go back to the 50s/early 60s on next gen
OMG Mafia 3 is semi-confirmed then? Damn, can not wait. I absolutely LOVED Mafia and Mafia 2. What I've always wanted was a black and white gangsta/mafia game. I really liked the colour system of The Saboteur, started off all monotone, and as you slowly took over areas, they became colourful and full of life. Now if only we can get The Saboteur 2 confirmed I'll be super happy!
