EA Makes Gamers an Offer They Can't Refuse
8:02 AM | Marcus Albers | Comment on this story
Electronic Arts and entertainment mega-corporation Viacom have announced that they will be partnering on a game based on the Godfather movies. The game is slated to be released this fall for Xbox, Playstation 2, and PC.
The game will allow players to develop a character and work their way from petty thievery to hopefully be accepted into the Corleone family. From there the player will carry out orders, earn respect, and make the city their own.
The announcement had this to say about the game:
Featuring non-linear action-adventure gameplay, The Godfather will offer gamers countless choices for solving the family's problems with brutal violence, skillful diplomacy, or a cunning mixture of both. From mob hits and bank heists to drive-bys and extortion, step deep inside the world of The Godfather where intimidation and negotiation are your tickets to the top. Players will use their powers of loyalty and fear to earn respect through interactions with characters in the world. Decisions made by the player in the game will have lasting consequences, just as it was in the mob underworld featured in The Godfather fiction.Of particular interest to fans of the movies is the fact that Marlon Brando granted EA rights to his likeness, and did some voice-over work with EA before his death. He will appear as Don Vito Corleone, the Godfather, in the game.
While the game has yet to be announced for the Macintosh, Electronic Arts has had a good record of recent releases making it here. As always, stay with IMG for the latest announcements about the Godfather video game.
