Mafia III – One Way Road Story Trailer
2K and Hangar 13 have announced that Mafia III – the next instalment in the popular organized crime video game series – will launch on the 7th of October 2016. Collector’s, Deluxe and Standard editions of Mafia III will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, and pre-orders of the game will receive the Family Kick-Back – which includes three exclusive vehicles and weapons.
Mafia III is set in the open world of 1968 New Bordeaux – a re-imagined version of New Orleans bustling with activity and complete with era-inspired cars, fashion and music. After years of combat in Vietnam, Lincoln Clay knows one truth: family isn’t who you’re born with, it’s who you die for. Now back home in New Bordeaux, Lincoln is set on escaping his criminal past when his surrogate family – The Black Mob – is betrayed and wiped out by the Italian Mafia. Lincoln builds a new family from the ashes of the old and blazes a path of military-grade revenge through those responsible. Intense gun fights, visceral hand-to-hand combat, white-knuckle driving, hard choices and street smarts will all be required to survive the mean streets of New Bordeaux, but with the right crew, it’s possible to make it to the top of the city’s underworld.
“Mafia III continues 2K’s proud legacy of creating outstanding narrative experiences, and is poised to set a new standard for interactive storytelling,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “With Hangar 13 at the helm, Haden Blackman and his team of talented developers are set to deliver a truly unforgettable experience this October.”
“Mafia III introduces a true open world, rich with its own criminal ecosystems to the franchise, while still upholding the strong narrative storytelling and immersive setting that the previous Mafia games are known for,” said Haden Blackman, studio head and creative director at Hangar 13. “New Bordeaux in 1968 provides a unique and powerful backdrop for our hard-boiled story of crime, betrayal, loyalty and revenge.”
