Mafia series continues to create new gangster sagas. The release of the fourth part is still covered in mystery but there are a few details which we already know. The game promises to stay of the same retro style with classical cars and distinctive music.
Mafia 4 Future
If you expect Mafia IV to be released in the near future, you are going to be disappointed since the possible release date is 2020.
So, will there be a Mafia 4 in the nearest future? If we can make any predictions on the possible story line of Mafia IV, it is definitely going be a gangster story. Hardly will developers develop any of the existing plots. So we can forget about Vito and Vietnam wars from previous parts. Perhaps the game will become a bit more modern and will take the story of a later age. There is a likelihood that we will see a different clan which is of non-Italian origin.
We lost it. We definitely lost one of the coolest franchise of the 2000s. Do you remember the feeling while playing the Mafia back in 2002? We do. It feels like a marvelously directed movie. Despite the Mafia II was a bit controversial and weak, it also has the soul. What we see now, after the release of Mafia 3? Disappointment. Black-guy-killing-everyone-for-revenge and rather typical plot. Not to mention weak graphics, lots of glitches. Developers could better make a spin-off than a full game.
Wait for lesbian-mexican-woman-killing-everyone for Mafia 4. Or better cross it out from the list of worth waiting games.
We expect that Mafia IV will be released for PS 4, Xbox One and PC. It is still early to predict which system requirements the game will have taking into account technological development of 2020. However, improved graphics and larger maps will require a stronger hardware for Mafia 4 PC version.
Features and Characters
First of all, we can expect all types of modifications. It means that developers will give us opportunity to upgrade cars, clothes and even weapons. It would also be reasonable to introduce tools to create the face of your character similar to Mass Effect, for instance.
Hardly will this game be released without collecting tasks where you have to find postcards like in Mafia II. We hope that fighting mode will be improved to become less linear and more real like. The last aspect to dwell upon is that we expect the new city which may have more opportunities to hide during chases.
Scarcely can we think about characters since there is no plot yet. However, we are going to see absolutely new protagonist as Mafia usually does it.
Mafia 4 Gameplay Changes
There is no doubt that Mafia IV will stay the same third person shooter of GTA type. The new city of the game is going to be bigger and give you more opportunities to explore it. The game will offer you secondary missions and mini games to show more details of the story line and to give you more bonuses.
The mission will have a lot of options. You can go berserk and make a slaughter or you can imagine that you are a silent assassin and eliminate your enemies nice and quiet. We hope that battles will stay relatively the same allowing you to take cover and shoot your rivals. However, the game may introduce new system of dialogues making it possible to choose the answers. That would be a good decision to make the game more realistic and less mundane. We also expect that character’s partners will become more responsive during battle and will have more actions to assign to.
