Mafia-3-(2)

Mafia games are a weird lot. They’ve got sandbox elements within them, except that they’re massively tempered in favour of an actual story that spins a tale over several hour. Mafia II was a fantastic example of this, a tightly-controlled single-player experience from 2010 that dropped players deep into the World War Two era of organised crime that you didn’t want to fugheddabout.

Mafia 3 looks like it’s taking a different, yet similarly brutal approach. Dealing with the black gangs of America during the 1960s, it’s a game that is unapologetically charged with the rampant racism of the South that permeated that era as players assume the role of Lincon Clay. A returning war veteran with an axe to grind against the Mafia gangs that took out the mob that he called his family, it looks fascinatingly violent.

Here’s the latest trailer for it:

Mafia III is scheduled for release later this year on October 7 on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Capisce?

  1. I don’t get it. Are we fighting the mafia in this game as a brother with an afro? I want organize crime, if the brother take out the mafia gang and controls his own mafia empire than i am down with it.

    I did not like Mafia 2. Hated the incredibly tedious driving. What makes it worse is that I preordered it based off how much I liked the demo.

      I didn’t preorder, but the reviews looked good, so I bought it. And then instantly regretted it.

      Yeah Mafia 2 was their best game, but it had some stellar tunes though…

    Looks good, hype is slowly building, I just wish they can do away with the preorder bonuses near the end. I mean how many people watches a trailer in anticipation for preorder bonuses?

    I liked the first mafia, and eventually I got to play Mafia 2 on the PC, but unlike the yakuza series, I’ve never really had this overwhelming urge to go crazy for these games.

    That looks actually very impressive. Very cool take on the Mafia world.

    Hope this game lives up to all the hype around it, it looks really great but it feels like it could be alot like L.A Noir
