Windsor, UK – April 19, 2016 – 2K and Hangar 13 today announced that Mafia III, the next installment in the popular organized crime game series, will launch on October 7, 2016.Collector’s, deluxe and standard editions of Mafia III will be available for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC.

Mafia III is set in the open world of 1968 New Bordeaux, a reimagined version of New Orleans bustling with activity and complete with era-inspired cars, fashion and music. After years of combat in Vietnam, Lincoln Clay knows this truth: family isn’t who you’re born with, it’s who you die for. Now, back home in New Bordeaux, Lincoln is set on escaping his criminal past. But when his surrogate family, the black mob, is betrayed and wiped out by the Italian Mafia, Lincoln builds a new family from the ashes of the old and blazes a path of military-grade revenge through those responsible. Intense gun fights, visceral hand-to-hand combat, white-knuckle driving, hard choices and street smarts will all be required to survive the mean streets of New Bordeaux. But with the right crew, it’s possible to make it to the top of the city's underworld.

Mafia III continues 2K’s proud legacy of creating outstanding narrative experiences, and is poised to set a new standard for interactive storytelling,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “With Hangar 13 at the helm, Haden Blackman and his team of talented developers are set to deliver a truly unforgettable experience this October.”

Mafia III introduces a true open world, rich with its own criminal ecosystems to the franchise, while still upholding the strong narrative storytelling and immersive setting that the previous Mafia games are known for,” said Haden Blackman, studio head and creative director at Hangar 13. “New Bordeaux in 1968 provides a unique and powerful backdrop for our hard-boiled story of crime, betrayal, loyalty and revenge.”

Hey! Cat always a pleasure hearing back form you:) No your the bad guy . LoL! your a member of the "Black Mafia' Lincoln is a criminal okay? Oh btw, you forgot to mention the Godfather games as well and Omerta. Did you watch the video's , especially the one from IGN they sat down with the makers of the game. You do some pretty "alwful" things in this game ,including some "interrogation" this is very much a M rated game. Perhaps, you should go back and take a look at the video's I posted, Okay. The Mafia games are more "story driven" vs. the GTA games which more about the "sandbox" part. I never found the GTA games to be very "story driven" they are more "mission based" but definitively not heavy on "story" Here is a GTA in nutshell OK? A. You have your protagonist, B. And then you get a "cut scene" C. then your given a "mission" to complete. D. said "mission" involves either collecting something, eliminating something, or gratuitous chase scene. Like I said very little in the way of and actual "story. So I would suggest, going back and watching those video's again OK.
At one point, you take on the Italian Mob in Mafia 3 . Trust me on this OK? You are very much the "bad guy" lol!

ohh yeah...I also I forgot about Yakuza 2! That was kinda fun too...more personal I think since there was no car combat..all close up and personal..and the side mission were hilarious.

Tho for Scarface so far I think it the only game that I know that you are not actually working for the mafia but actually the big mafia itself! very cool! should have more games like that! I rather be the big mafia then work for the mafia or be a small time mafia etc lol ;)

as a side note this also reminds me of dr3ver which had cheat code when you can actually be a girl! the main character be a girl throughout the game play [Voice is still a man tho lol]. GTA has something like that but I couldn't the code to work right.

If I was still into consoles I may actually like this mafia 3 now ... :)
