Screenshots for a sequel to Scarface: The World is Yours have appeared online, showing off Las Vegas environments.
The screens and concept art arrives courtesy of Mafia Game Videos (via VGC), a YouTube account with a deliciously simple mission. It provides videos of mafia games. Technically, Tony Montana, the game’s hero, wasn’t in the mafia, but we get the idea.
Check out the video below:
The description reads:
“Scarface: The World Is Yours sequel by Radical Entertainment that was cancelled in 2009, Scarface II took place in Las Vegas. Radical Entertainment laid off a lot of employees before they got acquired by Activision. They cancelled a lot of games such as Scarface 2.”
The first game belonged to that now-diminished genre, the GTA Clone. Radical Entertainment did a perfectly fine job with the licence. It is’t surprising that a sequel was in the works. Las Vegas would have been a cool setting, too, likely to draw Tony in.
And some of those screenshots also show Tony exploring the desert outside Las Vegas. That would have been great. In fact, it would be a little like Grand Theft Auto V and its Los Santos Wildlands.
In VideoGamer’s review of the game, Tom Orry said:
“Scarface has what seems like a perfect recipe, with a great licence, a great developer, and GTA-style free-roaming gameplay, yet it fails to match the sum of its parts.”
