Mafia 3 is an action adventure in the open game world developed by Hangar 13 Studios forces for PC, Xbox One and Playstation 4.
For the first time in the history of the series, the action takes place in real cities – it’s New Orleans of 1968. The protagonist is Lincoln Clay, a veteran of the war in Vietnam, seeking revenge for the death of the Italian Mafia members of Black Mafia brotherhood.
An interesting twist in the storyline of the future game will be the appearance of Vito Scaletta, the protagonist of the second part. It is noteworthy that his presence in Mafia 3 will not be limited to a banal cameo, and the character will be assigned one of the main roles.
In terms of gameplay, the project will remain faithful to the canons of the series. Firstly, it concerns a fully accessible city for research, across the expanses of which it will be possible to travel not only on foot or by car but also by boat.
Secondly, the combat system, as before, will involve fierce firefight with the active use of shelters and brutal melee combat. The bet, however, will be done on the first.
Concerning the innovations, should be noted only the capture of enemy territory.
The release of the game is expected on April 26, 2016.
