Within a short span, Mafia 3 has managed to become a sensation. The fan following of the Mafia series seems to have increased tremendously with the release of Mafia 3, and fans have already started discussing what they would like to see in Mafia 4 . There is still a long wait before the game would see the light of day, but that does not prevent the fans from voicing out their Mafia 4 wishlist regarding the changes they hope to see in the next installment of their favorite game. With the standards that Mafia 3 has put up, Mafia 4 certainly has a tall order to match up to.
While there is no denying that Mafia 3 is an impressive game, there are still some areas where a bit of tweaking and improvement would make the game even better. This is what we are going to shed some light on.
Mafia 4 Features Wishlist of the fans
Let us now take a look at some of the wishes that fans have expressed for Mafia 4 on various platforms.
A bit more about the city life
It would be a good idea for the developers to enhance the exposure that the player gets to the city life so that nothing is missed out during their escapades. It does not have to be anything drastic. Merely opening a small area for exploration might do the trick. An effort could also be made to make the city look more realistic. A bust neighborhood, signs of life in the city, and daily incidents would make the game appear more real and ensure that the player gets immersed in the game in no time. For instance, it would be interesting to see what the other gangs are up to. Showing the responses that the criminal acts of the players get from the city people would also be an interesting touch to the game.
Usually, developers are a little reluctant to offer the feature of multiplayer in their games as they fear it can have an adverse impact on the quality of the game. However, as it has been seen in other popular games, that does not have to be the case. A little bit of attention is all that is required. If the multiplayer option is enabled in the game, players can belong to different Mafia families and indulge in fights with each other. They can be given tasks to eliminate rival gang and plan robberies among other things. While these changes are something that the fans hope to see, they also hope that this would not affect the narration of the game. The multiplayer should be an option and not a requirement.
Moving ahead with the storyline
Fans have loved the plotline of the Mafia series, and they hope that the basic story of the game would be left untouched in Mafia 4. It should be a continuation of the same storyline. They also feel that there are a lot of unexplored stories in the plot which can be divulged deeper. The players hope to see more about where the characters end up and what they do. There is no harm in bringing new characters, but the fate of the old characters should be a part of Mafia 4 instead of leaving it to the imagination of the players. Bringing back former characters would also pique the interest of the players.
Making some upgrades
It is about time that the weaponry used in the game is upgraded to the next level and the fans get to see some significant changes in this regard. For instance, it would be interesting to see a gun with a silencer that can be used to kill a rival. It would also be interesting if a licensing system were introduced in the game where the players would need to acquire a license for the weapons they use. You can have cops asking players if they have a license for the weaponry and their reactions. This can also give the game a realistic touch.
getting hands on cars should not be an easy feat. Instead, a new dimension to the task should be brought about where players would be required to make an attempt to get cars. This would appear more real. Players would need to mask their identity to get cars for their criminal activity, which would be interesting to see. An option of purchasing the cars can also be introduced where the players would have to use the money they looted to get a car.
Another interesting change would be to give the players an option to use the money they stole to buy new homes. They can use the money to acquire a lavish lifestyle with ample luxuries. Not a lot of attention has been paid to the houses of the players, so this is something that the developers can explore with Mafia 4.
Making black money white
Players should be given an opportunity to cover up the criminal acts that they conduct. Hence, they can invest in a legal business to serve as a cover for their illegal acts. Furthermore, it would be interesting to see the bribery system being introduced in the game.
A tricky road to make these changes
Whenever we talk about bringing about changes in a popular game, the developers have to be rather cautious. This is because they have to bring a fresh dimension to the game while ensuring that its original essence is retained. We can only hope that the developers of Mafia 4 manage to attain this feat and provide the fans the changes that they are looking for. With these changes, the popularity of the Mafia series will witness new heights and Mafia 4 will go on to become a bigger hit than Mafia 3.
