2K Games has announced that Mafia III will be released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on 7th October 2016. Pre-order bonuses and special editions of the game have also been announced. To celebrate the announcement 2K Games and the game developers have released the One Way Road Story Trailer video, as embedded below.

Mafia III is a third-person action adventure game developed by Hangar 13 for 2K games. In the game, as revealed in the trailer above, you play Lincoln Clay, a Vietnam War veteran, looking to avenge your friends who were murdered by mobsters. Clay has learnt lots of fighting skills in 'nam and can deploy them to full effect against his mobster enemies.

You can choose your own tactics, from brute force and guns blazing - to stealthy stalk and kill. As you whittle away the opposition you have the opportunity to build your own crime empire. The game is set in the fictional 1968 city of New Bordeaux, a reimagined New Orleans.

2K Games are offering a few variations on the release:

  • The Deluxe Edition with $79.99 MSRP includes the game and post-release DLC via a Season pass. It is available both physically and digitally.
  • The Collector's Edition with $149.99 MSRP includes all the stuff in the Deluxe Edition plus the original game score on vinyl, a collectible art book, collectible art prints, and more.
  • A pre-order bonus pack includes a 'Family kick-back' of three exclusive vehicles and weapons – this bonus applies to any edition purchased including the base 'standard ' game.

Played the demo and wasn't completely sold
Seen some footage on Eurogamer a while ago, looks pretty good, you have generals to your family for each area and combat is cover based which seems to be the norm now for 3rd person games.

I really enjoyed the first 2 games, just hope this one captures the essence of a crime family properly rather than a period typr drama that plays out as the main character is a war vet of some sort
Looks really good. That pre-order soured the trailer though. Never a good sign. Seems a bit too Ubisofty.(Shut up, it is a word).
Looks good but concerned at how cheap it is, does this mean its a short game?
Christ, are there any non-indie games that don't come with post-release DLC, pre-order incentives and ‘special editions’ full of #### no-one wants? Are there really people out there who are so sold on the game they're willing to drop $149 on it?!
