‘Mafia III’ drops you in a 60s gang war this October

by John_A

A new Mafia III trailer dropped today, teasing more of the game’s mobster action from the late 1960s. It all takes place in the fictional city of New Bordeaux, a locale loosely inspired by New Orleans, as Vietnam veteran Lincoln Clay returns from war. When his surrogate family, the black mob, are attacked by the Italian mafia, Clay seeks all-out revenge. There are some brutal scenes, however the two-minute teaser is also incredibly stylish in its depiction of the new setting. Much of that can be attributed to Son of a Preacher Man, which plays in the background throughout.

To coincide with the new trailer, publisher 2K has also revealed the game’s release date: October 7th. The fall is always the busiest season for so-called “triple-A” video game releases, however Mafia III shouldn’t have a problem standing out from its competition. After all, when the game hits store shelves, it’ll have been more than six years since Mafia II was released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. After laying dormant for such a long period, there should be plenty of interest in the franchise’s return.
