Open worlds may be dime a dozen these days in video games, but they remain pretty damn hard to program- especially when you want to get the world ‘right.’ Simply put, an open world has a lot of moving parts to keep track of that must by necessity all come to work together- if even one thing stops working, the illusion is broken.
One of the many open world games coming up this year is Mafia 3, the next entry in 2K’s other open world crime saga. Mafia 3 looks to be a promising and exciting variant of the open world crime drama- and in this new video for the game, the developers decided to focus on the ‘open world’ part of that sentence, and discuss how they approached building the game’s world.
You can check the video out below. Mafia 3 is due out on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this October.
