Brazil 411 and FAQ

Bem-vindo ao Brasil!! (Welcome To BraZIL!)

Unlike other cities, Brazil is being presented a little differently. Brazil has been created with the intention to allow friends to ‘team up’ on jobs and challenges in a group setting. This allows every player to invite a crew of friends to collect awesome rewards and speed up completion of this new city! Challenges will be difficult and the competition will be strong…be prepared to lose items from robs, vault awesome rewards and play Mafia Wars like never before!

What’s new and Different In Brazil?!

*Going old-school NY-Style with energy jobs and NY-style mastery items
*Properties that generate Energy, Stamina, Consumables, Att and Def Items and a ‘Collect All’ Timer
*Precious Goods Collection, the revaultable and ROB-able Collection

*Every User will have an option to recruit ‘Brazil Crew’ of friends to help in: Jobs, Fights, Robs and Properties
