As we reported yesterday, Mafia III has a new story trailer, and it confirms yesterday’s leak that the game will indeed come out in the same month as Gears of War – October. More specifically, the release date reveals the release date as being October 7th, 2016. But no really, this is a pretty great trailer and you should watch it.
The game is set in ‘New Bordeaux’, a fictional version of New Orleans, in the year 1968. Vietnam War veteran Lincoln Clay returns home to find a city ravaged by mobs, and joins the Black Mob. After surviving a murder attempt by the Italian Mob, he sets out on a journey for revenge, seemingly by killing, blasting and destroying everything that gets in his way. And of course, because this is a GTA-style game, by driving around a lot.
Pre-ordering the game will net you the ‘Family Kick Back’ bonus, which includes 3 exclusive vehicles and 3 exclusive weapons, as seen at the end of the trailer below. Apart from the standard edition of the game, there will also be an $80 Deluxe Edition that includes the game’s season pass. The Collector’s Edition, priced at $150, includes all that, as well as the game’s original soundtrack on vinyl, an art book, art prints and more. The game will launch on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
