This is a letter you can’t refuse.
People have been anticipating the release of Mafia III for months at this point. Now that it’s out, players are flocking to their nearest game retailers to pick up pre-orders/copies of the game. while others have been downloading Mafia III via their preferred gaming networks.
While more reviews have yet to come out, Hangar 13 and 2K have released a letter both thanking fans for their anticipation, and creating excitement for the new game. This letter can be found on the Mafia Game Twitter page.
The letter reads:
“It’s been more than six years since you visited Empire Bay in Mafia II. Now, thanks to the tireless work of the whole team at Hangar 13 and 2K, Mafia III is finally here! We’ve pushed Mafia’s trademark cinematic storytelling in a whole new direction with an open world game – and we think you’ll experience that from the second you start playing.
The only thing that’s missing now: You. How will you exact revenge against the Italian mob in Mafia III? Which lieutenants will you support on your rise to the top of the criminal underworld? Our motto is, ‘Every player story is unique’ – and we can’t wait to hear yours.
Thank you for putting your trust in us and allowing us to continue doing what we do.
Welcome to New Bordeaux.
– Hangar 13 and 2K”
This seems very heartfelt. It seems that a lot of effort has been put into making the game feel as authentic as possible within the realm of the time period. It is good to see they are confident in the game.
Ultimately, however, these types of letters are always endearing and tear-jerking because they are written directly to the fans. It becomes more personal and the letters are meant to establish a sort of bone between the player, the game, and the developer.
In the meantime, be sure to let us know your thoughts on Mafia III.
