Mafia III developer Hangar 13 has published that the mobster sequel at the beginning featured a prologue collection deemed so debatable that the studio has actually erased it from life.
Whilst the sport is beautiful darkish as it’s, the unique intro used to be it seems that much more brutal than the rest we were given within the completed product. It sounds as if chopping it wasn’t sufficient both; Hangar 13 did not need it to leak and be seen out of context, so that they opted to clean it from its servers.
Talking with Eurogamer, the sport’s government manufacturer, Andrew Wilson, and sport director Haden Blackman, showed that the unique prologue detailed causes as to why protagonist Lincoln Clay made up our minds to enroll in the military within the first position.
‘Now we have by no means in point of fact mentioned this anyplace,’ stated Blackman. ‘We went again on the 11th hour and added a cold-open to the sport that used to be a in point of fact violent prologue which principally presentations Lincoln and a few his pals getting ambushed by means of the mob. It is super-violent and Lincoln has to lodge to violence to flee.’
The violent scenes discussed concerned Clay murdering a police officer, and then he packed his luggage for Vietnam.
‘If ever that had pop out with none context in any shape it will have appeared horrible,’ added Wilson.
Mafia III used to be launched on PlayStation four, PC, and Xbox One in October 2016.
