The developer of the game Mafia II has announced a partnership with NVIDIA to bring PhysX technology to all versions of Mafia II, the epic mobster crime drama taking place in the 1940s and 1950s in USA coming to the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC. The Windows PC version will feature a thorough integration of NVIDIA PhysX and 3D Vision technology into 2K Czech's Illusion Engine, so we now have a new 3D Vision-ready game title coming quite soon. Mafia II will also be the first Windows PC game ever to utilize the NVIDIA APEX Clothing and Particle modules to enable the city and personalities of Empire Bay to truly come alive, so Mafia II should really look quite impressive in stereo 3D modeā?¦
The NVIDIA APEX Clothing module allows for more dynamic movement in clothing, making in-game characters even more realistic and reactive to environmental conditions. With the implementation of NVIDIA APEX Particles, players are engulfed in lifelike explosions that are bigger and brighter, including weapon fragments, in-game debris and destructible environments that are amplified in both quantity and realism through the integration of APEX Particles. For example, a pistol fired into a glass pane will emit hundreds of glass shards; a shotgun blasted through a wooden landing will splinter the wood; and a Tommy Gun will chip into a brick or stone wall to methodically fracture and break it into pieces.
Mafia II will be available in North America on August 24, 2010, and internationally on August 27, 2010.
- The upcoming game Mafia II is already available for pre-order for $49.99 USDā?¦
