The Godfather II ‘Debut’ Teaser Trailer

Electronic Art’s upcoming third-person action sequel The Godfather II, goes beyond the film’s story by setting players in the world of organized crime in 1960’s Florida, Cuba and New York.

According to the game’s storyline:

“After being promoted by Michael Corleone to Don of New York, players expand to new cities, as they build up their families through extorting businesses, monopolizing illegal crime rings and defeating new families in an effort to become the most powerful mob family in America.

To help players manage their empire, The Godfather II introduces “The Don’s View” which is a strategy meta-game that allows players to oversee the entire world as they grow the family business. Using the Don’s View, players will be able to build, defend and expand their crime rings, while keeping an eye on the movements and plans of the rival families. Players will also learn to master the business of organized crime by building a family of “Made Men”, hiring crew, handing out orders, and promoting their best men up the ranks.”

While the teaser trailer posted above is indeed just that, it makes me wonder if Electronic Arts might possibly make a future third installment of the game should The Godfather II do as well as the first title. The idea makes me a bit nervous to be honest with you, because “The Godfather III” was the ruination of a what could have been a wonderful film trilogy. Should EA decide to go this route, hopefully it will fair better than that fallacy starring Sophia Coppola.

The Godfather II is expected to be made available for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 in February 2009.
