Mafia III Set For October 7, Two Special Editions Announced
We knew when we did the preview that it had a ton of promise.
The only downside is that despite the previous retailer rumor, we have to wait longer than anticipated to try it.
Publisher 2K Games has announced that Mafia III will release on October 7 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Developed by 2K studio Hangar 13 - and with the help of "Star Wars" veteran Haden Blackman, who directed the project - the latest Mafia entry is set in New Orleans in the 1960s. We'll play as Lincoln Clay, a mixed-race man who grew up an orphan, fought in the Vietnam War, and now faces more oppression and violence at home.
If you're interested, you should pre-order: Doing so nets you the "Family Kick-Back" DLC that will deliver three "exclusive vehicles and weapons." Plus, there will be three versions of the game; aside from the standard $60 option, you can also opt for the Limited Deluxe ($80) or Limited Collector's ($150) Edition. The former gives you the Season Pass while the big Collector's package gives the Pass as well as physical content like the game's soundtrack on vinyl, a collectible art book, art prints, and other currently unannounced items.
We also got a brand new story trailer, which you can see below. Like we said, this one has a boatload of potential!
