It's Time Folks - Mafia III is Now Available
Mafia III continues 2K’s pedigree of outstanding narratives told through rich characters in immersive settings with the city of 1968 New Bordeaux – a reimagined version of New Orleans – bustling with activity and complete with era-inspired cars, fashion and an eclectic mix of music, including more than 100 licensed tracks from one of the most memorable eras in history. During this turbulent time, a cloud of corruption hangs in the air and the city has become a haven for organized crime. The Italian mob controls illegal gambling, drugs, and prostitution, while corrupt police and politicians line their pockets with the proceeds.
It follows the story of Lincoln Clay, a disenfranchised Vietnam veteran returning from combat and looking for a sense of belonging. Orphaned as a child, Lincoln at last achieves a semblance of family with the city’s black mob. But when Lincoln’s new family is betrayed and slaughtered by Sal Marcano and the city’s Italian mob, he becomes fixated on revenge. He wages a brutal war against the Marcano family, disrupting the balance of power in the seedy underworld of New Bordeaux. As his story unfolds, Lincoln allies himself with other criminals and builds an empire and a new family of his own.
