Players can now head over to Mafia Wars Las Vegas!
First up, let's talk jobs. There are 6 new episodes, which are now called "Districts" and they are much different than before.
First, note the new pathing system:
Out of these, any job that has an energy icon requires energy, and a gun requires stamina. The Person icon is a boss fight, and the loudspeaker icon is a "social" job (did not seem to have any interaction yet when I used it, but it is in beta).
Here is an example of the fighting job:
The game pulls up a random person off the fight list and you fight them; if you win the fight, you complete the job. Not sure what happens as you lose as I haven't yet. One good thing is that you don't lose health for spending stamina for these jobs.
At the end of the chapter, you get to fight a boss:
I hope the feature was not working properly, because as soon as I clicked "attack" I got a notice saying that I won and that was the end of it.
For taking down the boss of the North District, I received this item: Alves' Muscle Car with 55 attack and 73 defense. I think I saw a message saying something about that this item gets better if you master more tiers.
The other new cool thing is the Casino.
Basically, there are 5 different properties + a vault that all make up your casino, and you will have to upgrade each one individually. You also have to unlock the buildings via jobs. For example,
"Steal a Truckload of Slots" lets you build the Slots casino property. You build the parts of your casino just like you do with the Chop Shop.
Racks of Chips
You can exchange these on the inventory page, 1 at a time. They are worth 200-700 $V each.
I have to head off work now, but will be updating this a lot over the next few days!
