Massacre in Moscow - Mission Event
Seasons change, and in March, Mafia Wars will change in an unprecedented way.
Q: Moscow is closing, why?
A: We have some major things coming up in March, and part of the storyline involves the closing down of Moscow. 'The Neo-Imperium, fresh from their success in controlling the Moscow Underworld, turns its sights to controlling the Russian Underworld. They have commisioned a team of hitmen to assassinate the leads of the Moscow Mafia in a show of force. You are one of the leaders that is on the hitlist, and you need to track down these hired guns and get to them before you become the next fatality.'
Q: What do you mean closing?
A: Moscow will no longer be accessible. It will be grayed out on the travel menu and any attempts to get to Moscow will be stopped with a popup. You will not be able to vault or revault Moscow collections. You will not be able to collect from Moscow properties or access the Moscow bank. You will not be able to complete Moscow achievements. You will not be able to fight or rob in Moscow.
Q: When will this happen?
A: Moscow will be closing on March 10th.
Q: Is this permanent?
A: Moscow will be closed for the foreseeable future.
Q: What if I have finished Moscow already?
A: In order to complete Massacre in Moscow mission, you will need to loot Snow Resist Layers. This will only drop in jobs and fights (but not robs) in Moscow. Completing the mission will award you with the Special Mastery Item, a Snow Cat (144 Att / 72 Def).
