Factoid: Italy ‘Regions’ are like Vegas ‘Districts’. There are also the same 4 tiers of Mastery (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Ruby). Each Region will have 2-3 paths (Energy, Fight, Social).

Factoid: You will no long need to master all paths to finish a tier. Beating a boss will automatically advance you to a fully unmastered map on the next tier.

Factoid: Italian Boss fights are designed similarly to the Beat the Feds event. In theory, a really strong player could beat a Boss all by herself, but very few players will be able to do that. The Boss fights were purposely designed to encourage cooperation with your mafia to take down the Boss(es) together. You cannot use two Boss Fight consumables in a row (Health Kit, Shiv, Grenade, Stun Gun) Boss Fights will be timed and the boss will not heal until that timer expires, at which point, he will heal to full strength. Each Boss has a different timer.

Factoid: You can request help on a Social Job every 8 hours

Factoid: Some job consumables will be harder to obtain and may require doing multiple jobs (like New York City required Concealable Camera Loot as a consumable requirement for the job that produced Blackmail Photos) You will need Cooked Books (from Milano) to do the job (in Napoli) that produces Hidden Charges.

Factoid: Like Vegas Properties, each level will require more parts. There are ten levels, depicted with Roman numerals (I-X)

Factoid: Port is similar to Chop Shop, but instead of Car Parts, it will cost Lira to craft items.

Factoid: Italy does not have a buildable vault like Vegas. However, it is Italy, and there will be a laundering fee again for the bank.

Factoid: Like Bangkok and Vegas, Energy and Stamina requirements for jobs will vary depending on a player’s level.

Factoid: There are no tournaments in Italy.

  • just wanted to say that there is a whole lot of info to take in!
