mafija III neće biti mala igra u bilo kojem trenutku ... pa, ne ako se najnoviji dnevnik programera može proći. Igra će navodno sadržavati devet različitih okruga za igranje, svaki sa svojim stilom i jedinstvenim okusom.
Video objašnjava da će igrači putovati kroz devet različitih četvrti, dovršavajući misije i preuzimajući ili izvlačeći kriminalne rekete u svakom okrugu. Prema videozapisu u nastavku, po distriktu će postojati dva kriminalna reketa, što ukupno iznosi oko reketa 18 u mafija III.
Some of the districts that players will visit includes the docks, where shipments come in and leave. There’s the French ward, which is designed to imitate New Orleans’ Bourbon Street. There’s a posh suburban area where the upper echelon of society hang out, there’s also a low-rent area where protagonist Lincoln Clay starts off from, and there’s a marshy swamp area… like the bayou.
Svaki okrug ima svoj jedinstveni okus i stil kako je dizajniran. Programeri su željeli da se svaki dio osjeća drugačije, dok u isto vrijeme hvata i estetiku Louisiane koja je prožeta kroz 1960-ove.
The city will be unlocked in parts as players progress through the story, unlocking new content and more areas to explore as they delve deeper into Lincoln’s story and get more involved in the criminal antics.
They mention in the video that the different districts will also explore the different ways in which the various mafia organizations operate. I’m curious what they mean by this but I’m sure it relates to their import/export business centered around the docks and marsh areas, as well as the more seedy rackets that you’ll likely find in the urban and suburban areas. We were treated to one of those rackets in a previous video where a drug supplier ran his operation out of the graveyard.
Gamers are reluctantly excited about this title, and their hesitation in getting too hyped is not unwarranted. Lately it seems like AAA development has been more concerned with social politics rather than delivering fun gameplay. The indies have really picked it up with adding all sorts of creative flavors to their games that we just don’t see in the AAA or mainstream space anymore. So hopefully we’ll get a well told story in mafija III that’s complimented with progressively evolved gameplay mechanics.
