New Mafia II Trailer restores faith for 2010 release

18 Comments | posted

With one of four titles from Take-Two possibly falling into 2011, a new trailer of Mafia II sent to us by the publisher restores faith that is not the game to get pushed into next year.

In our previous report we brought you the news that Take-Two was planning to potentially push one of four titles into 2011; these were L.A. Noire, Mafia II, Civilization V, and Max Payne 3. With the following trailer sent to us today, we believe that Mafia II will be one of the lucky three that’ll fall into the August-September period of 2010. Still, there isn’t too much cause for celebration, considering that the game had previously been planned for the first six months of the year.

    Mafia is teh suck

  • taus90

    Well i seriously feel that Civilization V should be pushed in 2011, rest of them this year. By the way cool Mafia 2 trailer

  • Fatality

    it looks good in my opinion, hope it has a better stor than mafia 1

  • scottspeed

    I didnt play the first but im hooked now from seeing that. A GTA style game but with the mafia looks kwl and the shooting and cover system looks solid. Also a little destructible enviromnent i saw there. Driving looks fun too. Turning out to be a very interesting game.

    I have a Mafia II poster in my room. Well, it was a Bioshock 2/Mafia II poster.

    Game looks good. Why is it, though, that sandbox games never have particularly great graphics? I can think of a few, but not many.

    meh, the first one wasnt that great…i wont be looking forward for this one

    This looks pretty good I guess, I never played the first one, seems like there is destructible environments. Also I wish Max Payne is the one to get pushed, I don’t feel like playing a hobo lol

  • SonyJunkie

    Vid does not work but if it is the same as the one on GTTV, then it was pretty cool looking.

  • M.n.M

    Vid doesn’t work

  • Thorzilla

    Nnnnice! A good change from all the futuristic shooters or all the modern warfares. Hell yeah.

  • Patrick Steen

    MnM – the video does work. Try again =)

  • Rokkafellah10

    1st one was from a different era… this one will revolutionaize the open world game industry

  • Rokkafellah10

    if it comes out in 2011 that’s a disgrace because it was supposed to be 09

  • WonsAuto

    This is the game I’m most looking forward to from 2K this year, so it’s definitely good to see this trailer. I need a good mob game, especially after Godfather II last year, lol.

  • Dr. Moogle

    @WonsAuto: really? i thought the first one was straight ghetto (and not the hood ghetto but the lame ghetto)

    i guess if the reviews and generally good (including user reviews) ill look into this

  • WonsAuto

    @Dr. Moogle: Are you talking about Mafia 1? I never played it, but all I ever heard were great things. Then again, I hear that they did a crap job porting the game to consoles from what sounds like a brilliant PC game.


    A must buy maybe? Mafia 2 VS LA noire = 2kgames VS Rockstar.
