With traditional Facebook notifications now a thing of the past, Zynga is hoping to keep Mafia Wars players connected to the game via email updates, and as an added incentive for users to sign up for said updates, the company is offering an exclusive in-game item to all who participate.
The item comes in the form of an armored vest, with some fairly impressive stats (when compared to other defensive items): 23 Attack and 47 Defense.
The wording on the game’s pop-up (seen above) seems to let on that additional items will be coming to those who subscribe to emails, as the word “Rewards” is clearly plural. That being the case, it’ll be interesting to see how Zynga thanks fans in the future.
For now though, head over to the game’s page and sign up, if you’d like to get your hands on this impressive piece of armor yourself.
