Mafia III: What Does Simulation Driving Do and How to Change it

Simulation Driving Mode – Mafia III

Mafia III returns with the same endeavor as its predecessor to make driving feel more realistic than the average open-world game. This option comes with an setting to turn this all on or off with Simulation Driving Mode.

First and foremost, in order to turn this on or off, you head over to the pause menu, tab to the Option, hit the Game Settings one, and choose which Driving Mode you’d prefer. But what does each one do, exactly? Well, odds are you’ve already played with the normal, more arcade-y mode. Switching over to Simulation will give your car more weight, making turning and crashing feel particularly different and potentially more costly. Essentially, it aims to make your car feel like a car from that era would. Not just any ol’ modern car, and certainly not a video game’s car. Some players might find this sluggish, others might just not even see a difference, but it tries to simulate this experience.

Gas mechanics from Mafia II, however, don’t make a return this time around. You won’t have to keep an eye on your fuel gauge as you’re on a highway chase anymore.
