Once caught up, the pusher spills the beans no problem. The game then presents the player with a choice: spare the no-good filth peddler, or make him pay for his dastardly ways. Just what will Clay decide? You guessed it: brain matter everywhere. It’s at this point that the police decide enough is enough, so it’s back behind the wheel for some more hot rubber action. After some time weaving through the streets with a blatant disregard for the Highway Code, another of Mafia City’s gameplay systems is revealed.
LiquidSky has been testing away in private beta for a little while now, and it seems those tests have been impressing, as they’ve helped it raise $4 million in a series of seed rounds led by Samsung Global Innovation Center, Sun Microsystems founder Scott McNealy, and former Sun Microsystems and AOL-Time Warner executive Bill Raduchel, according to PCGamer.

As the game kicks off, Lincoln has just returned home, and quickly becomes embroiled in a heist for the resident head honcho, the aging Sal Marcano. Sammy essentially works for him, running his own gang but ultimately subordinateand Lincoln wants to help out the man that helped raise him. There’s little of the long, A to B drives between missions, and we’re bounced up and down Lincoln’s timeline, going from the heist itself to some of the events that lead up to it and then back to the heist. All the time, we’re treated to those aforementioned interviews that hint at the future, and we get glimpses of Lincoln’s life and his relationship with his adoptive family.
Microsoft has been pushing cross-platform play a lot. Will that be part of PUBG on Xbox?
Lieutenants are also the people who you can put in charge of various hideouts captured around the city. These buildings will provide different bonuses based upon who is running them, so there’s a slight management element to it all. Retaliation attacks from opposing gangs are a constant threat, so you’ll need to be prepared to defend your outposts from the syndicate.
Mafia City might have been handed off to a new studio, but Yotta Games understand the series’ namesake perfectly. If their newest trailer is anything to go by, they know that the fascination of the online mafia games lies in that always-uncomfortable juxtaposition of family and murder.
