Mafia II shows off cover system and New York accents

Mafia II is coming and 2K Game’s Czech studio is showing it off finally. Some lucky Europeans got to head over to the studio and get some time with the game and a lucky Norwegian newspaper got the first gameplay footage of which you can check out below. Evidently, the gameplay and story have been revamped and made better, giving the game a bit more action and excitement.

From what we see in the video I’m not so sure what is going to stand out about the game at the moment. It looks like another shooter taking place in a made up city. The original game was fun, but it never stood out to me as something special and I’m not sure if this one will either. Then again with the graphics engine being specifically designed for the game and what looks like plenty of in depth and realistic content being shoved into it this could be a real winner.
