What Does Simulation Driving Do and How to Change it in Mafia III
The open world of Mafia III might not be the most exciting thing to explore, but you’ll need to traverse across it a fair amount in order to succeed in your mission to bring down the Italian Mafia. Of course, the best way to get around the world in the game is to use one of the cars tootling around the streets. 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. Here’s what this Simulation Driving mode does, and how you can turn it on and off in the game.
First and foremost, in order to turn this Simulation Driving mode 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 Driving mode 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.
