“I’m always excited about new technology because it means we can push our art even further,” he says in an interview with Gadgets 360. “For the PS Pro specifically, we’ll add some graphics upgrades.”
Considering that not all games plan to leverage the PS4 Pro’s beefier spec, it comes as a sigh of relief for those planning to buy the console.
Stay tuned to Gadgets 360 for our full interview with Blackman, where he touches upon several aspects of the game including its design, narrative, music choices, and post-release content strategy.
Mafia 3 follows the exploits of Lincoln Clay building a new family after his mob was betrayed and hunted down by the Italian Mafia in New Bordeaux. Considering employees at Hangar 13 have worked on the likes of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and Knights of the Old Republic, it’s likely that Mafia 3 will have a strong narrative. Nonetheless, we’ll only know for sure when the game is out on October 7.
