Mafia 2, the upcoming gangster third person shooter is set to release this August. When it does make its way to store shelves, the PlayStation 3 version will be able to download free bonus content. Despite bonus content being added, some things, endings in particular, got cut.
Senior producer on Mafia 2, Denby Grace, in an interview with IncGamers stated that Mafia 2 had four different endings before the decision was made to drop them.
“We had four multiple endings at one point in the game, and then we looked at it and we had one really outstanding great ending to end our story,”
“We worked on these things and we have our players that focus test [the game] and we found that people were just replaying and ultimately only felt satisfied when they got to the one GREAT ending.”
“We just said ‘You know what? Let’s just ditch these other endings, this is the ending everyone wants’ and that’s one thing we’re happy with making that choice.”
Mafia 2 looks set to release on the 24th August in North America and the 27th August in Europe – after many delays. Also releasing is a Collectors Edition which boasts added content for your buck.
