Welcome to the Corleone family. After a life of small-time jobs and petty thefts you've
been accepted into America's most famous criminal organization. Now it's up to you to carry out orders, earn respect, rise
through the ranks, and make New York City your own. Play your cards right and you could even be running everything as the
next, and most powerful, Don.
A story about family, respect and loyalty, The Godfather book by Mario Puzo and film by Paramount Pictures
serve as inspiration for the game as you join the Corleone family and earn respect through loyalty and fear as you rise through
the ranks to become Don in a living, 1945-1955 New York. The Godfather will put you at the center of action in one of history's
most revered cinematic masterpieces, allowing you to create yourself in the game, and then choose your path as you rise from
lowly outsider to envied and feared Don.
Respect and consequences: Players will use their powers of loyalty and fear to earn respect throughout New
York City. Decisions made by the player in the game will have lasting consequences.
• Persistent world of The Godfather: Your character will interact freely with other characters
in the world. Depending on your needs and how you choose to play the game, by violent or intimidating means or respectful
or negotiating means, the characters in the world will remember your interactions.
• Blackhand controls and pressure point targeting: Being a gangster has never felt so good and
Blackhand will put the power of intimidation in the hands of the player. An analog control-based combat system will give players
the use of both analog sticks and shoulder buttons to execute punches, kicks, grabs and even allow you to strangle an opponent.
Pressure point targeting will help lock on less lethal parts of an opponents body so they're still around to give information
vital to you.

family with your own tough, street-wise looks. Customize facial features and hair, suit up your created mobster in era clothing,
