News – Mafia III coming in October
2K’s Mafia III takes place in 1968 in the open world of New Bordeaux, which has been described as a reimagined version of New Orleans. It includes vehicles, fashion and music inspired by the late 1960’s era that the game takes place in, and we now have a release date.
Set for release on October 7th on PS4, Xbox One and PC, Mafia III stars Vietnam veteran Lincoln Clay, a man who believes that family are the people you die for as opposed to born with. Clay wants to move away from his criminal past, but he’s forced into return when his surrogate family are completely wiped out by the Mafia. Obviously, Clay is thirsty for revenge, and he forges a new family because of this.
Expect shooting, driving, fighting, and difficult choices, with all of this taking place in a proper open-world environment, which is a first for the Mafia series.

Along with the game, the Deluxe Edition (available at select retailers) will feature access to DLC released after the game, including the Season Pass at additional savings. As for the Collector’s Edition, this one features all the content from the Deluxe Edition as well as a vinyl soundtrack, a collectable art book, art prints and more. Finally, if you pre-order any version of the game from select retailers, you’ll receive the Family Kick-Back DLC, of which includes three exclusive lieutenant-themed vehicle and weapons.
