CVG’s posted the first real details of The Godfather II, by way of Brit mag Xbox World 360.
From the piece:
Described as “Scarface meets Total War”, the second game is said to be less of a GTA-clone and more of a sandbox game with RPG, RTS and erm, board game elements.
The action takes place across three 1960s-era cities (Miami, Havana and good old New York), and the once again focuses more on bullying depot bosses than driving boats and helicopters (of which there are none).
There are six characters in the game – bruiser, demolitions expert, arsonist, medic, safe cracker and engineer – each of which can have one of 12 personalities.
There’s lots more through the link. It’s out for release in the early part of next year, apparently.
