A new trailer dubbed “The Heist” has arrived for Mafia III, fresh out of— yes, you guessed it- Gamescom.
We’ve been fed a lot of details about the game over the past few weeks, painting out who the main players are and exactly what the story is. If you’re carrying over from Mafia II you probably don’t need us to tell you that Vito Scaletta is the protagonist of the previous game, or what his exploits were, but you won’t be playing as him this time around.
Instead you’ll slip into the role of Lincoln Clay, an orphan returning from the quagmire of the Vietnam War, to find another one waiting for him in New Bordeaux – an alternate take on New Orleans.
We don’t want to divulge too much about the game as yet, but the more we learn about Clay and New Bordeaux, the more appealing this game sounds.
If you do happen to be at Gamescom and want to check out Mafia III, you can find it at the 2K booth in Hall 6.1. If not, the game is scheduled for release October 7.
