Gamescom 2016 kicks off this week, and with its arrival a brand new trailer has been released for Mafia III.
The game follows Vietnam veteran Lincoln Clay in 1960s New Bordeaux, a fictionalized take on New Orleans and the surrounding areas. In the game Lincoln is a man on fire, seeking vengeance against the Italian mafia after they commit an unspeakable betrayal. This new trailer, titled “The Heist,” takes a closer look at that betrayal.
You can read more about Mafia III and watch the new trailer below.
It’s 1968 and the rules have changed
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 a criminal past. But when his surrogate family, the black mob, is betrayed and wiped out by the Italian Mafia, Lincoln builds a new family on 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 and street smarts will all be needed. But with the right crew, tough decisions and some dirty hands, it’s possible to make it to the top of the city’s underworld.
