Never-before-seen footage from Scarface 2 Game Leaks Online
Remember in 2006 when we had a scarface play set after the end of the classic gangster movie of the 80s? It was a weird setup, but the end result was a little goofy, but kinda fun GTA-like an open world game. Apparently, it worked well enough for a sequel to begin development, but it was never finished. However, new images of the canceled one scarface sequel has surfaced online, giving us a good look at the follow-up that never was.
The newly released images of this never released sequel, known as Empire Scarface, is courtesy of the Mafia Game Videos YouTube channel. The footage shows an early version of the game, featuring the new Las Vegas setting, improved graphics, improved combat, and lots of swear words.
Images from Mafia Game Videos show combat and driving, as well as a new mechanic called “revive”, which is said to have allowed Tony to survive encounters with random gun-toting thugs. This could have worked as a Quick Event (QTE), allowing the player to recover if successful or die if unsuccessful. The video also shows off a load of supposed concept art for the never-released sequel.
On Twitter, Mafia Game Videos shared more clips and screenshots of the first build. The channel also shared information about the engine that allegedly powered the game, explaining that it used modified technology first seen in the open world. Pontoon games developed by Radical Entertainment. This technology would also continue to power the studio’s open world Prototype Games.
Rumors have long swirled about a scarface sequel still in development, but it’s the first footage from the game to surface since its untimely demise.
The first one scarface The game’s idea that Tony Montana had somehow survived the big gunfight at the end of the original film was still kind of silly and definitely lacked all the interest of the film. But it also allows developers at Radical Entertainment to craft a new rags-to-riches story starring the brash mobster as he rebuilds his empire. And of course, in many ways, the game was just one GTA Vice City clone, but to be fair, GTA Vice City is in many ways a scarface clone. So that seems fair. Plus, the game ended up being a pretty fun PS2-era open-world crime caper. Sometimes big, senseless shootings and virtual drug deals hit the bull’s eye, you know?
While that’s unlikely to happen, I’d love to see the first game get a modern remaster or re-release to make it easier to play in 2022. I’d rather play that than the remastered city of viceat least.
