More about Mafia 4
In a previous news, we talked about the appearance of a user on Reddit claiming that he obtained this information through a person working for the Canadian age classification authority ESRB, where they obtained the script for the game to put it in the initial rating. This leaked information stated the following:
Most characters are sent as code names rather than real ones, but players can be sure of their natures.
The internal game name as it appears in the script is Sam Boyd 4 from 2K
The location and period are Saint Fortuna (Las Vegas) and Lost Haven in multiple time periods.
The main protagonist of the game is a dirty cop and a gambling addict named “Hain” who engages in a scam early in the game as the story begins.
The game is very branched and depends on your style of play and how you want to be the hero of the game Hain, either attack the mafia or join it.
The secondary protagonist is a judge in Lost Haven whose assignments will consist of gang trials and set in the period between the 1940s and the 1980s.

These are the most important leaks that this source shared with us. It may draw attention here to the existence of forks for the events of the game’s story, which will of course depend on the decisions of the player himself, but the source did not mention the existence of multiple endings, but we expect that this information is correct that the game supports such a thing as it contains multiple forks that can In the player you go to several different events and of course different endings.
