Mafia 2 On PC Receives 3D Support From Nvidia 

The PC version of 2K’s upcoming crime sequel Mafia II will receive some added graphical goodies, including 3D support, thanks to Nvidia’s Physx technology.

"We are extremely excited about the upcoming launch of Mafia II for Windows PC," Nvidia’s general manager of GeForce business Drew Henry said in a press release. "With support for GPU-accelerated PhysX and 3D Vision, gamers will be able to experience the mob world in a whole other dimension. Gamers are in for a real treat."


In addition to supporting Nvidia 3D Vision, Mafia II will also include the company’s Apex clothing and particle modules. In fact, Mafia II will be the first PC game ever to include the high-powered clothing tech. I’m crossing my fingers that this means the game will feature either a tailoring mini-game, or the ability to shoot holes through coats and hats only because that’d be the tops.

The particle effects sound particularly fantastic since it means pistols, shotguns and machine guns will all have appropriate impacts on surfaces. For instance, pistol shots will splinter windows, shotgun blasts will…well, blast holes in wood, and machine guns will chip away at concrete. I’m a big sucker for highly detailed environmental damage like this, so I can't wait to see it in action when Mafia II hits PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 August 24.

Here are two more pretty pictures of the game's physics in action:
