Just finished the game on PS4 along with all the DLCs. Got the deluxe edition for 1.5k (ebay). First few hours felt kinda boring but then really starting enjoying it. Wish they had polished some gameplay aspects a bit more, as otherwise the game is f**king awesome tbh. Loved the setting and narration, also it was nice to see Vito again. MAFIA 2 was one of my fav games last gen. :wub: 

 

Played from start to finish on PS4 1.09 patch. Did not encounter any bugs at all.

Big Layoffs Hit Mafia III Developer Hangar 13

 

Quote

Mafia III developer Hangar 13 laid off a significant number of staff today, in yet another example of the video game industry’s brutal churn.

 

Publisher 2K confirmed the move when reached by Kotaku this afternoon. “2K can confirm that there have been staff reductions at Hangar 13 in order to ensure that the studio’s resources are properly aligned with its long-term development plans,” a company spokesperson said in an e-mail. “These reductions will not influence 2K’s ability to create and deliver its products that are currently in development. We never take these matters lightly, and are working with the affected employees to support them and explore potential opportunities throughout our organization.”

 

The publisher would not specify how many people had been laid off, although we’ve heard it was a large proportion of Hangar 13's staff.

 

The studio, based in Novato, California, has spent the past year prototyping as it tried to figure out its next project, according to one person familiar with the company. One potential idea, which the person said Hangar 13 recently discarded, involved a third-person action game with a “fight to music” system where your moves would create songs, not unlike the canceled Harmonix game Chroma.

Has anyone played this game on PC with a PS4 controller via DS4?

 

The game doesn't correctly recognize the PS4 controller and I can't see any button prompts for it either on the Controller Preset option page:

^^ Empty button prompts. Some corresponding buttons work on my PS4 controller but others just don't, like using shots when your injured (tried every button on the controller and quite a few combinations but didn't do the job). I tried activating "Hide DS4 Controller" in the DS4 settings section but no dice.

 

Mouse and KB on this game feels wobbly to me in the game.

Have you tried ds4windows?

You don't need any 3rd party apps anymore. Steam now supports DS4 and I use it daily. 

 

Go to settings -> controller -> general controller settings option

Plug in your DS4 -> it will appear below -> select and calibrate. Thought it will automatically. Once done, close and reconnect your controller. You will see notification setting PlayStation 4 controller using config. 

 

Desktop configuration controller -> load the high rated config form community or search.

This is one time setup. Once done, you are good to go.

Never mind I got it to work. I was initially using an older variant of the DS4Windows, the Jays2Kings version which was throwing up errors while activating the 'Hide DS4 Controller' option. I downloaded the newer and updated DS4Windows Ryochan7 version and through that 'Hide DS4 Controller' option works like a charm.

 

I'm able to now see all the button prompts correctly being displayed in the game settings.

Got all the 89 Junction Boxes done at last.

 

Can someone please shed more light on the entire Racket Earning concept in the game. There are 2 types I see on the map:

 

30000/ 50000 under some Rackets

 

Kickback 6500 under Cassandra's name

 

Do I have to head to the Rackets and collect the money? Also, what happens when the earning reaches 50000/50000 on the map under a certain racket? Do I have to head there and collect the money or is that only indicating that the particular racket is earning to it's maximum capacity ($50000 in this case)?

It's been a really long time since I completed the game, but if memory serves, you need to manually need to head out to Cassandra and collect it from her. However, later on in the game, you'll get a perk (from Vito) which will make it significantly easier to collect the kickback money without having to physically visit that location.

Yes, I went into the house Cassandra is located at and the money was right there on the table in front of where she sits, ready to be collected.

 

A couple of things I don't like about this game:

 

- The entire Witness aspect to carjacking. It's very annoying when you jack a car and a pedestrian runs to a phone booth nearby to inform the cops. I sometimes run after them and KO them or I simple drive away from the blue circle area.

 

- The side missions with rackets aren't very interesting. They are mostly go there, shoot some bad guys and interrogate a guy (which is also is a scripted event) and done. Also, those missions you get from Alma for example sometimes show up on the map but the trucks or boats that need to spawn aren't there because her racket is earning to the max and the mission is not needed to be done. One can easily argue that is the mission isn't needed to be done then why does it even pop up on the map, at all?!

- Eventually a perk will be unlocked, which will let you just make a call for "doorstep money collection". Super useful.

- Gameplay is insanely repetitive. You will be doing the exact same thing till the end.

- Several glitches like the one you have found, which they never fixed.

Just spotted this while doing one of the missions:

 

  Hide contents

 

 


Mafia3-Definitive-Edition-2020-06-02-21-
 

 

 

Separate sections based on skin color. Damn. :(

 

This kind of stuff, along with the storyline, was the highlight of the game for me.

You just need to gain the perk from Burke that will make it much easier for all your car problems. The initial phase of the game is woefully slow, especially if you aim to complete everything in the game. I know it took me quite a while to clean out the entire collectibles on the map.

 

I agree with the side missions aspect. They should have really made some meaningful quests instead of the repetitive area capturing charade that it makes you go through. Thankfully, the DLCs aren't structured this way and they are much more straightforward.

Doing those Junction Boxes (all 89 of them) took me quite a while not to mention collecting the Fuses as well. Each box takes 3 fuses to unlock so it does take some hunting around.

 

@quixote_1989: I love some of the circa 60's songs on the Radio stations as well. Some of those are definitely known to me. :walkman:
