Mafia III (of sorts) coming to iOS
Even if you don’t play games on a Windows machine or console, you’ve likely heard of Mafia III; the commercials are pretty much all over the place. I barely watch any TV (too many games to play) and I know more about Mafia III than I do about my own house.
What I didn’t know until this morning is that 2K and Cat Daddy are bringing a mobile version to iOS and Android on October 7th. Mafia III: Rivals is a battle RPG that portrays the diverse and dangerous New Bordeaux from a whole new perspective. The game will offer “… a completely different way to fight your way to the top of the criminal underworld with characters, locations and events based on Hangar 13’s Mafia III.” Players will seize property, collect loot (including weapons and vehicles) and defeat rival mobs in an effort to grow their own crime syndicate.
Begin your life of crime squaring off against rival gangs in battle RPG combat. Recruit and train 40 crime bosses from the Mafia III universe as they join your crew, and destroy any foes getting in the way. Outfit New Bordeaux’s newest hit squad with an assortment of deadly weaponry and other gear. Join up with friends and battle players worldwide to see who has the deadliest crew in New Bordeaux.
Details are otherwise scarce, so we’re not sure about IAPs or whether your progress in the game will somehow tie in with your Mafia III for consoles account. We’ll let you know when we learn more, but if you’re interested in grabbing the game in the meantime you can pre-register now at www.mafiagame.com to get in-game bonuses when the game launches for free on October 7.
