Mafia III announced for 2016 with a Gamescom trailer!

-

The world has been waiting ever since 2K teased the reveal of Mafia III at Gamescom. Well, the time has come to check out the very first trailer. Rather awesome it is too!

Coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC in 2016, Mafia III is being developed by Hanger 13, a new studio under the 2K arm.

A reimagined 1968 New Orleans plays host to Mafia III during one of the most tumultuous years in the American history. Following the story of Lincoln Clay a Vietnam vet who has returned looking for a new home, Lincoln at last achieves a semblance of family with the city’s black mob, finding the surrogate father and brother he has longed for. But after his family is killed by the Italian mob, he allies himself with other criminals, builds an new empire and wages war on the Italians.

Mafia III continues the strong franchise tradition of a captivating story set in the treacherous and calculated world of organized crime,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “Mafia III captures Hangar 13’s mantra of ‘every player story is unique’ through a cinematic narrative that responds to player choice.”

Throughout the riveting story of Mafia III, players choose their path to revenge and build their own crime empire using cunning, stalking and deception, or through overwhelming force and firepower. Mafia III combines the best of cinematic storytelling with a dynamic narrative structure that responds to player choices, set in a vibrant city that responds to Lincoln’s actions.

“The Mafia franchise is known for its immersive sense of time and place, and for presenting compelling stories about life within organized crime,” said Haden Blackman, studio head and creative director at Hanger 13. “In Mafia III, we are introducing players to an unexpected new anti-hero and an iconic city to explore, all within a hard-boiled drama set during one of the most turbulent years in American history.”

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
