The Crime Title in the Open World is launched in theGOG About a year and a half after it first went on sale, as part of a move that may also get backed by other manufacturers in the future
In October 2016, the game Mafia 3 was launched, accompanied by considerable expectations from all those who liked the previous pair of titles in the series - but with all good will, it seems that the work did not quite live up to expectations.
Average scores of less than 70 out of 100 among Metacritic critics and even lower scores on the part of the players in MetacriticSteam With complaints about various and bizarre bugs, repetitive tasks and an open world that feels relatively empty "decided" the fate of the title, and even eventually led to a layoff round in the Hangar 13 developer earlier this year.
Now, Mafia 3 is getting rid of Arxan's defense mechanism and even of's file system Steam - Musk in a full version without DRM On the platformGOG The popular one, which usually gets to see mostly modest indie titles and titles from the distant past.
The launch of this 'free' version may not make Mafia 3 a huge economic hit all of a sudden, but the game did manage to temporarily jump to number one on the GOG sales chart (despite a relatively high price of between $ 20 and $ 30, as part of operation Which cuts half the full cost), and gives hope that other manufacturers and distributors will internalize that versions without file protection are a legitimate way and are asked to maintain a greater degree of interest in long-term games, even if they come some time after the original launch in a protected version .
Do you think that any hacked game deserves to be launched in a version without file protections, or is it perhaps a kind of wrong spur and 'gift' for those who engage in illegal distribution on the network of these titles? Let's talk about it in the comments.
