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.

We’ve seen previews of the long-awaited next game in the Mafia series, but now we have the first extended gameplay demo.
For E3 2016 developer Hangar 13 has released a lengthy 22-minute gameplay demo for Mafia III, as well as a new trailer to go along with it. The gameplay demo is a little bit different from the ones we usually see, which often show one section of the game being played. For the Mafia III demo they jump around to a few different things to really jam-pack the video with lots of information on the game for those anxious to play it.
You can check out the gameplay demo and trailer below.
As promised, the first trailer for Mafia III was released earlier today at Gamescom 2015. It’s only a cinematic trailer, but it’s a pretty darn good one. It’s basically the mini story behind that first image we saw when the game was officially announced last week.
Just as the last game saw the primary protagonist Vito returning from World War II, this third game has you playing as a Vietnam War vet. And speaking of Vito, he will be a character in the game and can be seen in the trailer. You can watch the trailer, see some screenshots, and read some story information below.
We all have a nice list of games from the last console generation that stood out as our favorites, that we enjoyed playing more than all of the others. One of the games on my own personal list, is Mafia II.
It might not be considered a great game, and it does have its fair share of flaws, but there’s plenty of things about it that I really loved. And it wasn’t the mafia stuff, the running around and shooting and such (though that was plenty of fun as well). It was the setting, being able to hang out in the 1940s and ’50s, driving old cars around, and of course, listening to the many great old songs on the radio as you drove. A good example of this was early in the game, after you’ve returned home from World War II, when you’re simply walking home at night while it snows lightly (seen in the video below). I was won over early.
There have been whispers of a third game in the series here and there since the last one was released in 2010, and today it has been confirmed: Mafia III is on the way.
