Mafia II is a third-person action-adventure video game, the sequel to Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven. It is developed by 2K Czech, previously known as Illusion Softworks, and is published by 2K Games. The game is set from 1943 to 1951 in Empire Bay (the name is a reference to New York's state nickname "The Empire State"), a fictional city based on San Francisco and New York City, with influences from Chicago and Detroit. The game features a completely open-ended game map of 10 square miles. No restrictions are included from the start of the game. There are around 50 vehicles in the game, as well as licensed music from the era.

Mafia II performance is great. We continue to see a strong boost in performance, but the 2560 x 1600 numbers are the most important. We aim for an average of 60 FPS and that's what we know will create a smooth gaming experience. When you're just around that mark, though, it's nice to get a little further away.

 

Overclocked, you can see our Lightning card jumps more than 10 FPS and that's going to make sure your gaming experience is silky smooth at this resolution.
