Mafia III

Recommended Posts

For those wondering if this game would be set in 60s/70s or even 30s. The game is very likely to set in late 1945 since it says "returning home to Lousiana after war".

It could be set in the 60's because of Vietnam not only that Frank is of mixed race and it could explore the whole civil rights movement in the 60's. I mean it says he is "An orphan in the racially segregated south" and "An outsider to both black and whtie socitey."

Either way though I really don't want it to be in the 40's really want it set in the 60s/70s

 

Not really. Vietnam war only ended in 1975 so I doubt the war refers to Vietnam war. Don't think it would be set in 70s, the Fedora hat was no longer a trend since late 1950s and Fedora is defintely what we think about when we talk about the American Mafia. If anything the game would probably be set in 1945 - 1959 or 1962 (reference of Where Were You in '62?) at most.

That tweet is surely legit. but the logo, and the 3 characters thing have been around for a long time. the logo's been on the web for years. and judging from how generic it looks. pretty sure its fake. also the multiple characters idea is so similar to GTA V's idea. which makes me suspicious. i hope it isnt true. i didnt like multiple protagonists in V and see no reason why they should go down that route with Mafia.

Guys, what if New Orleans is just a casting call fake concept?
It's unlikely having Vito featured in a new city in the South just because 'let's do it'. It's ridiculous. Even having Tommy in the game sounded more realistic (in M2) because the city described in Mafia 1 was looking somewhat accurate compared to Mafia 2's, oh, he also didn't have any major role. You'll have to play M1 to learn more.
What if you don't actually play as Vito, you just meet him through your storyline as you come back from the war in '45.
Basically, the timeline all over again just with everything rather different because you're living another life and you're meeting other people for the most part.

@Majestic81

Knowing how the guys at 2K Czech do, they probably added that to the casting call just a few cheap laughs, they're not doing it because they know it would make the game an instant GTA clone - killing it. Mafia has always been about the protagonist and the rest of the people doing actions around him. Actions he cannot choose to follow or not. He has to. Orders are made to be followed.
Mafia 1's Tommy was too human and look what happened to him. Vito's the other side of the coin.

You do know Take 2 owns both Rockstar Game and 2K right ? And the 3 characters, why are you so sure those 3 would be the characters, maybe only one of them is actually protagonist.

They need a black protag for sure o you can fight racists and sh*t and prove to The Mafia boss-man you're loyal enough to work for him, no matter what colour.

Basically this.

 

And no, that's not done by 2K Czech. It's Take 2 that was doing the casting call. Here's one thing, they never claimed those 3 characters are protagonists at all. It's all speculation.

Hmm, just like Mafia 1's and 2's trio, right?

Paulie - Tommy - Sam

Joe - Vito - Henry

 

Could be it easily. Actually, I've noticed something, Paulie and Joe are the closest friends who eventually either die or are left with an unknown fate.

Sam and Henry are both the older ones in the 2 trios. They also take a somewhat antagonistic role. Henry turns out to be a rat and Sam betrayed Tommy and Paulie for Salieri.

 

2K Czech seems to love trios as it had one in every Mafia game. They also seem to be about the same in the base concept... would they do the same thing with Mafia 3? Would Hangar 13 keep it going?

Exactly. It is certainly possible, not confirmed but possible. People need to stop assume it's 3 protagonists for MAFIA III just because those names look familiar.

 

And on the 2K Czech part, maybe Hangar 13 will. After all, the core members of the 2K Czech are actually here at Hangar 13 now. If you look at Hangar 13 Studio tab, you would notice what makes them truly special.

 

 

Though we hail from all over the world, and our backgrounds are wildly different, one thing binds us all together – the belief that “Every Player Story is Unique.” We believe that a game should never be a fixed experience fed to the player, but something that is shaped by the game developers and the player together, every time the game is played. At Hangar 13, we want to make (and play) games that allow players the freedom to define everything from the moment-to-moment gameplay to the narrative, creating their own, unique player stories along the way.

Mafia 2 was good but plagued by the lack of things to do outside the story and the lack of online multiplayer

The driving was fine (it was the 50's and they still go faster than GTA V :p )

Shooting was great, even on console

Music selection was pretty nice

 

I hope the Mafia series continues with 3 and I'm looking forward to playing it

Mafia should not have a black protag.

not because it's racist, but because that would make absolutely no sense.

 

the Mafia didn't recruit black guys. period.

they recruited white guys with Italian heritage. that's it.

 

if Mafia had a black protag then it wouldn't be about the Mafia any longer. it would be about some other street gang.

They didn't recruit black guys but they did some work for them. Parnell "Stacks" Edwards was part of the Lufthansa heist. Black guys could never become full members of the mob they would be associates kinda like the Irish who also did work for them.

yeah that's great.

but it doesn't change my point.

 

I guess you could make a game called Mafia: Associates :lol:

but if you want Mafia, you need white guys.

This is great. Looking forward to seeing anything Mafia III related. I've had this strong urge to play Mafia II again for a while now, but unfortunately sold it ages ago thinking I wouldn't regret it. Might cop it again soon.

oh you know what else?

don't get me wrong about the black protag.

 

they should actually focus on an angle like that with some DLC.

one of the DLC for Mafia 2 focused on an ex-Hitman who did contract work for the Mafia families instead of being a made man. and both Mafia 1 and 2 showcased a lot of black gang activity especially in the "ghettos" where they acted like mercenaries who would work for any gang.

 

there could be some great stories with a black protag at some point within Mafia.

they've been using black characters in the games for awhile.

I'm in for a new Mafia game.

 

But when you think about how Take Two totally killed Mafia II after buying the original studio, you realize that the next game won't even have such as cool features like the beta of the second game had. When you see videos of M2 alpha, there's barber shops, subways, melee weapons and a lot of things that never made into the final release. Not to mention half of the story -a lot of major and minor objectives inside the chapters, alternative endings- was taken out of the game.

 

I just hope there's a new protagonist and a new story connected to the previous ones. Honestly I don't want to play as Vito again, and not because I don't like him (quite contrary, actually), but having him again as the main character would feel dull. They still have to explain if Joe survived or not.

Yeah I feel the same. Don't get me wrong, Vito was a pretty good character, if anything he is your stereotypical Italian/American mobster in some ways. Anyway, I agree with the above, instead of making Vito return, they should start a fresh character, and integrate the ending of Mafia 2 in a mission in Mafia 3, the same way Mafia 1s ending was included in Mafia 2. Maybe the new character, for once, doesn't have to be your usual tough guy, I'd like to play as someone who's more than that, maybe somehow include a system, similar to the godfather games, having to run businesses, rackets etc. after all, the Mafia were about making money, weren't they?

 

I'm not sure about the three protag thing, I think they should stick to what they do best and focus on one character, build up his personality etc. What would be good though, is to see some dlc that doesn't just include typical Italian/American Mafia activites, maybe they should include some Irish/American criminal activites in the 60s/70s too. I don't know, I love the world in Mafia, I just hope they expand it a bit more.

I simply loved mafia II it was such a great and enthralling storyline filled with action around every corner. I loved the cars and the fact that you ran out of gas, I also liked that you could choose to buy stuff from stores or steal it.... Very great game and if Mafia III is true I hope they do 4x better and give us more stores to shop in and basically more open world elements.

It would be a good idea if it's actually set in Italy this time, I know it will never happen but still would be nice. All in Italian so there will have to be subtitles for those who don't understand it. Maybe just a chapter?

Sleeping Dogs is set in Hong Kong, but they don't speak Cantonese the entire time. Think of it like Niko's dialogue. The majority of the time he speaks English, but he will speak Serbian at times. I believe that's what they'd do if Mafia III was in Italy. Movies do that as well, so it's not like it's a new concept.

Would really like to see more actual mobster stuff. Racketeering, extortion, stuff like that. The only thing I didn't really like about the Godfather games was that you were always constantly under attack it really got annoying. I mean I don't mind it but it was all the time If they do include something similar to that at least make it involve the story like maybe the family hits the mattresses and goes to war with a rival family or something.

Yeah I remember that, being on one side of the map and all of a sudden being randomly attacked on the other side, that sh*t was a pain, but hopefully, 2K can get it right, it doesn't have to be as big as Godfather was, I mean there were loads of sh*t you could take over in The Godfather from what I remember. It doesn't have to be a big side activity in Mafia 3, but it could still be a nice addition.

Been looking forward to Mafia III ever since I first put Mafia II into my Xbox. Since it's Vito, I'm guessing the story will carry on from where it left off. I really wanna know what happens with Joe. Maybe even Vito becomes a Capo or Don.

 

As far as gameplay is concerned, it would be cool to buy and manage illegal fronts and businesses. Mafia II lacked many good vehicles. there should be more and better vehicles in the game, and the ability to take taxis and trains.

 

I could see Vito leaving Empire Bay after all that happened, and may relocate somewhere else. Maybe even down south, according to this casting call.

I'm all-in for Mafia 3.

M1 was basically Chicago while M2 was more or less New York City. I wonder where they would go for M3?

Quite simply, it's gotta be Las Vegas during the 60's.

Exactly what I'm hoping for, especially if they go for a multiple time period set up like II: start in the mid 60s, transition to the early/mid 70s. It'd be my dream game.
