Mafia III - JosephB2K


Lincoln has taken on the Italian Mafia, corrupt sheriffs and rogue CIA agents. Starting today, you’ll deal with a blood-thirsty cult that’s one step ahead of you. The final story DLC that wraps up Mafia III’s Season Pass – “Sign of the Times” – is now available!

What’s in it, though? Let’s break down what’s lurking at the fringes of New Bordeaux.

https://youtu.be/UNprCkXesjk

A new enemy: The Ensanglante is a drug-fueled, blood-worshipping cult operating in and around the city. They’re set on an inevitable collision course with Lincoln after he disrupts one of their macabre ceremonies taking place inside the walls of Sammy’s bar.

A mystery to solve: It’s a game of cat-and-mouse as you work to uncover the Ensanglante’s end-game. Along the way, you’ll investigate ritual sites for clues and signs of their whereabouts. Check bodies, take pictures of evidence and follow clues with your black light as you edge closer to the horrifying truth. You can read more about the cult and the Investigation experience here on the Mafia blog.

A new way to play: If you have deadly accuracy, you’ll get extra time to take down targets. “Sign of the Times” introduces a new slow-motion gunplay mechanic, similar to the slow-motion driving skill introduced in “Faster, Baby!”. Once activated, the world slows as you take aim. While the timer ticks down, snap off successful headshots and you can keep the meter going.

New weapons in your arsenal: Once you beat back the Ensanglante, you can order the Black Sacrament automatic rifle from the weapons van. And throughout the game, you’ll discover throwing knives that’ll let you silently slay your way through the city.

New threads: Ready to rip the roads up as if you were in a gang?  Slap on the Motorcycle Club outfit. Playing “Sign of the Times” also unlocks The Wanderer and Tee Time outfits in Lincoln’s wardrobe.

New wheels for your fleet: Win the Samson Harrier hotrod in a race and you’ll fly off the line. Meanwhile, the Bulworth Harrow is a seriously grim set of wheels perfect for ushering your enemies to their very own funeral.

A “new” place to call home – Sammy’s: All the hard-earned cash earned from your side businesses and whatever you *ahem* get while on the streets can be put into refurbishing Sammy’s to its former glory. Rebuild the bar, get a new jukebox – put Sammy’s back together just like you remember it from the very beginning of the game. But you can also start adding more to it. This was a big request from the fans – and it’s something we really wanted to deliver in “Sign of the Times”.

You can read more about Sammy’s in this post on the Mafia blog.

“Sign of the Times” is the third and final piece of DLC in Mafia III’s Season Pass. Here at Hangar 13, it’s our goal to tell great stories and deliver kickass gameplay experiences. We truly hope you enjoyed your stay as we worked to add more features, create memorable characters and deliver crazy car chases along the way. While we set out to tell Lincoln Clay’s story of revenge, we also wanted to make you feel welcome in New Bordeaux.

from the entire Mafia team, thanks once again for all your support, your feedback and spending time with us.

We’d love to keep hearing about your run-ins with the Marcano family – so keep in touch with us on our Facebook, Twitter and YouTube channels for the latest on all things Mafia.

Ever since fans set foot in New Bordeaux, they've wanted to make Sammy’s a place all their own – now you can in “Sign of the Times” for Mafia III. 

A big part of the story behind this DLC is, of course, investigating a cult operating out of New Bordeaux. “It all starts with Lincoln going back to visit the burned out remains of Sammy’s to get some closure,” explains Senior Writer Ed Fowler. “This felt like the right way to start the story, but also a great call back to an extremely important location in Lincoln's life and the player's experience in the main game. So once we landed on that location, we knew that was it. There was no better place to begin a story like this.”  The way it works: After you get to the bottom of what the Ensanglante is planning, you’ll be able to come back to Sammy’s and really deck the place out.

All the hard-earned cash earned from your side businesses and whatever you *ahem* get while on the streets can be put into refurbishing Sammy’s to its former glory. Rebuild the bar, get a new jukebox – put Sammy’s back together just like you remember it from the very beginning of the game. But you can also start adding more to it.

Where it gets interesting is that as you need to hire more staff, you’ll start unlocking side missions. Help a drummer out of a jam and his band will perform at your club. Do a favor for someone and they’ll start working your bar.

And, a nice perk from helping said bartender: You’ll unlock the Samson Harrier. This high-speed hot rod flies off the starting line – and will be a fine edition to your fleet. Provided you can win it in a race.



“After all is said and done,” Fowler adds, “we wanted to provide a bit of closure for Lincoln as we wrapped our last big DLC for Mafia III. You can start playing "Sign of the Times" at any point after the first sit-down and feel like you’ve tried to do right by your adoptive father’s legacy.”

Season Pass Owners: Don’t forget that “Sign of the Times” is part of the Season Pass. Best part, you don’t have to wait much longer – this DLC hits digital stores on July 25, so keep your eyes peeled for more Mafia news on our Facebook, Twitter and YouTube channels.

The burnt-out shell of Sammy’s is littered with bodies, the result of a ritual sacrifice gone wrong. It’s up to Lincoln Clay, Father James – and you – to unravel the clues and free a woman from the grips of a bloodthirsty cult. “Sign of the Times” is a dark trip into the drug-induced underbelly of New Bordeaux. What can you expect out of “Sign of the Times” when it arrives on July 25? Keep reading to learn all about the third installment of Mafia III’s Season Pass content.

Faster, Baby!” had you ripping through rural Sinclair Parish with high-speed chases and stunt driving. “Stones Unturned” took you on an explosive buddy action adventure with John Donovan by your side. Now, as a mysterious cult surfaces in the city, “Sign of the Times” draws you into a creepy game of cat-and-mouse that feels more like a 1960s-inspired psychological thriller. There’s a few new gameplay elements introduced, as well as gear to earn and cars to add to your fleet.

We spoke with Bill Harms and Ed Fowler, Hangar 13’s Narrative Director and Senior Writer, and found out more about what’s to come in “Sign of the Times.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=go2AmSXy8KE

TRUTH IS AS STRANGE AS FICTION – Bill Harms, Narrative Director

The inspiration for “Sign of the Times” is pretty clear. The late 1960s was a time of social and civil unrest – which we cover extensively in the game – but also of hallucinogenic experimentation and crazed cults, the horrible memory of the Manson Family being the most infamous. We were inspired to tell a story that represented that element of the time period, which led to The Ensanglante you tangle with in New Bordeaux.

But, even we have to admit that this is a pretty different experience going from Lincoln’s story of revenge against the Italian Mob, taking down corrupt officials in “Faster, Baby!” or helping your old war buddy in “Stones Unturned.”

I see each of the DLC stories as three different journeys for Lincoln and how he’s wrestling with his own grief and finding a way forward. You have someone like Lincoln who felt powerless in stopping the betrayal early in the game. In “Sign of the Times,” you have him finding someone who needs help – that’s not able to put the pieces of the puzzle together – and he can actually do something for her.

Part of it is seeing himself in that character – Anna – and the common ground of going through traumatic experiences. This isn’t some quest for revenge or redemption, but Lincoln tries to find some kind of peace for her that he’s not able to find for himself.

There’s definitely a different feel for this part of Lincoln’s story. It’s more internal, there are points you’re hearing Lincoln talk to himself as he hunts for clues. More importantly, he’s not in full control of this situation – and there are times when he won’t even know what’s real and what isn’t. Unlike the one-man war that Lincoln wages against the Marcanos, he doesn’t have an inside line. No knowledge of The Ensanglante or what they do. He’s trying to piece things together at the same time as the player.
 

NEW WAYS TO PLAY – Ed Fowler, Senior Writer

From the moment that the “Sign of the Times” DLC kicks off, you’re in for more deliberate pacing. There’s a mystery to solve with Lincoln searching for stray objects left behind, strange writing – you’ll even examine bodies for clues. By eyeballing the environment and using a blacklight flashlight to uncover hints, you’ll zero in on where The Ensanglante operate and what the hell their endgame is for New Bordeaux. At key points in this DLC, we have these investigation zones where you’ll methodically look for clues that reveal more of the truth… and it can quickly turn a corner where you’ll be dealing with cult members in tense firefights.

There’s crazed, knife-wielding cultists that will taunt you and jump out from nowhere. Not to mention throwing knives you’ll be able to silently hurl back at them. As you scour new locations inside New Bordeaux city limits, you’ll also fight off well-armed psychopaths as they attempt to slow down your search.

Speaking of slowing down, “Sign of the Times” introduces slow-motion gunplay. Once triggered, you have a few extra seconds to take down enemies. However, for those able to skillfully pull off headshots, you’ll extend the slow-mo timer – so take aim!
 

There's More Signs Ahead

Season Pass Owners: Don’t forget that “Sign of the Times” is part of the Season Pass. We still have more to share about this DLC in the short time before it hits digital stores on July 25, so keep your eyes peeled for more Mafia news on our Facebook, Twitter and YouTube channels.

Ready to team back up with John Donovan? “Stones Unturned” DLC launches today, and with it comes a brand new action-packed story, environments, weapons, outfits, and much more!

Click here to get “Stones Unturned.”

Donovan is the heart of this DLC, not only in the story but in the action as well. He’ll be fighting right alongside you. Together, you will uncover a dangerous plot in New Bordeaux that leads you on a chase throughout the city, and ultimately to a new island location that holds secrets long held classified.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFdE_62jgD8

What’s New in “Stones Unturned”?
  • A thrilling new story, hunting down a rival from the past. Join Donovan on a chase to catch former rival Connor Aldridge and his mercenary army, who are on the trail of a downed aircraft carrying hazardous cargo.
  • Dive into the action with fan-favorite John Donovan. Donovan is leaving the motel room and joining Lincoln in the action! He’ll be right alongside you every step of the way, cracking wise as your wingman. That also means we’ll get more great memorable moments with these characters, drawing upon their brotherhood forged during their time in Vietnam.
  • New environments to explore. We’re leaving New Bordeaux and heading to a brand new dense jungle island – something not yet seen in Mafia III. In addition to tracking a downed military plane and its cargo across this new island, we’re also exploring some unseen areas in New Bordeaux while on Aldridge’s trail.
  • Bounty Hunting missions. After completing the story of “Stones Unturned,” team up with new associate Robert Marshall to track and subdue key targets causing unexpected trouble around New Bordeaux.
  • New tools to play with. Lincoln and Donovan are going against a well-armed mercenary force, so they’re going to need a few extra weapons to play with.
    • Weapons: Hop in the back of a vehicle-mounted turret and take out incoming foes, or go loud with the improved grenade launcher and RPG.
    • Sniper Service: You’ll also get the ability to call in Marshall’s Sniper Service to quickly pinpoint and take out enemies.
    • Outfits: Go tactical with the new Jungle Camo commando garb for more serious affairs, or don the Party Animal outfit for a casual look that would fit just right on an island or in a Cuban café.
    • New Fleet Vehicles: The heavy-duty Griffin Borneo Sport joins Lincoln’s fleet after completing the story missions. Make sure to complete all of the bounty hunting missions to get the sporty De’Leo Stiletto, as well as new decals for customizing your ride.
If you’ve purchased the Deluxe Edition of Mafia III and have redeemed the Season Pass code in the box, or purchased the Season Pass individually, you’ll receive an automatic update adding “Stones Unturned” to your game. You can also purchase “Stones Unturned” and any of the Mafia III DLCs individually on the digital storefront of your choice. To access the DLC, you’ll need to have brought all three Lieutenants to your side before you’ll be able to kick off the DLC by meeting with Donovan.

“Stones Unturned” is the second paid DLC for Mafia III, following our first DLC “Faster, Baby!” Next up is “Sign of the Times,” which explores a mysterious and violent cult making waves in New Bordeaux.

Mafia III - JosephB2K


We know that Mafia III revolves around the Marcano crime family and Lincoln’s tale of revenge, but everyone wants to see more of John Donovan. Same here at Hangar 13! That’s why Lincoln’s fiery, wiseass CIA handler from Vietnam is front-and-center for “Stones Unturned” – the new DLC for Mafia III coming May 30.

In “Stones Unturned,” Donovan is your wingman and buddy. He’s there with you every step of the way, helping unfold a mystery brewing in New Bordeaux. As Donovan’s past catches up with him, you’re fighting side-by-side… or, in some cases, firing a huge mounted turret from the back of a truck while he’s doing the driving.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUUq_f5KI9s

Which leads us to what’s turning up in Stones Unturned.

One thing that we’ve continually heard from fans is how much you loved the minute-to-minute story-driven action in Mafia III. So we focused on that to bring this DLC to life. “’Stones Unturned’ is an adventure story, through and through. Our goal: Make it feel like a great buddy action movie,” says Senior Writer Ed Fowler.
  • More to explore: We won’t spoil too much, but as you’re chasing down clues, you’ll explore new locations within New Bordeaux city limits – a department store, restaurant and safe house – as well as a remote island off the coast of New Bordeaux.
  • There’s a new support option: You’ll be able to call in Sniper Support.
  • New vehicles: How does a turret-mounted off-road vehicle sound? Good? Good.
  • New mission types: You’ll meet another salty friend from Donovan’s past as you pick up new Bounty Hunting missions around New Bordeaux.
  • New weapons to subdue foes: Get your hands on the dart gun to silently take down targets from a distance.
  • Most important: Donovan is your wingman, fighting by your side throughout “Stones Unturned.”
That’s right, you’re getting 100% more Donovan. “What we really wanted to do was tell a story that was unique to Lincoln and Donovan. Something to show they were a tight team that had each other’s backs… and that they have this rich history together. We don’t get explicit about their time in Vietnam, but in “Stones Unturned,” you get to experience what that time might’ve been like,” Ed tells us. He also went a little more into what it’s like to write lines for Donovan.

“Writing Donovan, brings my inner wiseass out. He gives you that channel to say and do what you probably wouldn’t in civil company. What I really love about the character is that Donovan is a guy that you can disagree with his methods, but you understand his reasons. He truly believes in what he’s doing and he is armed with facts as he does it.”

According to Ed, it’s a combination of what’s on the page… and what actor Lane Compton brings to role.

“[Donovan’s] so much fun to write. Still, I gotta say it’s equally the magic Lane brings to the table. He locks in on Donovan’s swagger and principles in such a dynamic way and takes everything to another level. It’s awesome to watch him work.”

We’re excited for “Stones Unturned” to just get out there for everyone to see these two pals hanging out in New Bordeaux. The bullets start flying May 30 on Steam.

Mafia III - JosephB2K


Whether you’ve already taken down the Marcano crime family, or you’re still new to town, the streets of Mafia III have more stories to tell. Today, the “Faster, Baby!” DLC is ready to roll – and with it come a number of game enhancements, gear, new vehicles to add to your fleet. And, of course, there’s the story of small town corruption choking Sinclair Parish.

It’s up to Lincoln Clay and Roxy Laveau to do something about it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MW8DIyfpBKs

What's New in "Faster, Baby!"?

Quickly recapping what’s going into this DLC:

There’s a whole new part of town to drive through – and tear up. Sinclair Parish is a small rural township in the countryside with lots of opportunities to tear through turns, jump gaps and run from the law. Oh, sure, you’ll have your fill of Hollywood-caliber car chases, enhanced with new “Faster, Baby!” additions like the ability to activate slow motion. It’s a new way to carve tight corners and thread-the-needle between narrow gaps while evading pursuit.  

”Faster, Baby!” gets straight to the action with high-octane driving and more car combat. With this new DLC release we’re introducing new combat mechanics perfectly suited for causing destruction on-the-go. Namely, you’ll now have access to proximity mines so you can lay out traps on the backroads or in enemy encampments. Also, take advantage of the ability to toss grenades from your car while enemies are in hot pursuit.

…and there’s a great story as well! “Faster, Baby!” takes place alongside events in the main game. A civil rights leader is murdered while investigating local sheriff “Slim” Beaumont – and other activists are next on the list. As the story unfolds, you’re unlocking new cars for tooling around New Bordeaux, new outfits and new gear for taking down Slim – as well as the Marcanos.

 
How Do I Start Playing "Faster, Baby!"?

The Deluxe version of Mafia III, which is bundled with the Season Pass, includes “Faster, Baby!” as well as the upcoming “Stones Unturned” and “Sign of the Times” DLC. So, if you already purchased the Deluxe version or a Season Pass, no other purchase is required – just get to downloading. Otherwise, the “Faster, Baby!” DLC is now available for purchase from your favorite digital store.

Just start driving around. It doesn’t matter whether you previously finished Mafia III or you’re just starting off on your own personal tale of revenge, feel free to explore all that Sinclair Parish has to offer. If you’ve sealed Marcano’s fate, just start driving southwest until you hit the country. Just started? You’ll still need to have all three Lieutenants (end of Act Two) before you’re able to head outside of town. So plan for a nice little country drive.

Uncover the corruption. To kick off the story – and to take down Slim – head over to meet with Charles “The Voice” Laveau after the end of Act Two to hear what’s happening in Sinclair Parish. What happens next is up to you and Charles’ daughter, Roxy.

Pay attention! There are a number of new gameplay elements – and interactive items throughout Sinclair Parish – that change how you’ll play the game. Keep an eye out for those new tutorial screens.

Don’t forget – “Faster, Baby!” is just the first paid DLC for Mafia III. We still have more stories to tell and a bunch of additional content coming in the “Stones Unturned” and “Sign of the Times” DLC that are also included in the Season Pass. And that’s on top of the free vehicle modifications, races, customizable outfits and extra weapons we’ve released since the game’s launch.

Mafia III - JosephB2K


Pack your bags – we’re headin’ out to the country!

When we shipped Mafia III last fall, we were honored by the community’s response. Since then, many of you have asked for more of Lincoln Clay’s action-packed adventure. That’s what we’re delivering with “Faster, Baby!” – more to explore, more to do while driving around New Bordeaux and another chapter in the life of Lincoln Clay.

What does that mean? It means there’s a new town just begging to be busted up and driven through! You’ll do it with wicked jumps and new situational awareness driving that lets you take tight turns in slow motion. New weapons are added to your arsenal – including proximity mines for setting traps and a silenced SMG. And when the heat is on, drop a grenade behind you while driving to shake whoever’s on your tail.

In short, “Faster, Baby!” adds more of the revenge-seeking you loved in Mafia III with new tools at your disposal.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VSXXihhh_nA&t=1s

WELCOME TO SINCLAIR PARISH

Coming on March 28th, “Faster, Baby!” features high-octane chases ripping through the countryside and new ways to cause vehicular mayhem. What’s different this time around when you play Mafia III? We’re getting straight to the action as we tell Lincoln’s tale.

”Faster, Baby!” takes place alongside events in the game… but in an entirely new town and with new gameplay experiences. A civil rights leader is murdered while investigating local sheriff, Walter “Slim” Beaumont. Other activists are next on the list – and it’s up to Lincoln and Roxy Laveau (daughter of Charles “The Voice” Laveau) to get to the bottom of what’s happening.

As for Sinclair Parish – it may be fictional, but it’s based upon how a few towns used to be, says Hangar 13’s Narrative Director, Bill Harms.  It’s a place where some folks tried to preserve a narrow-minded way of life.  Minorities weren’t welcome, especially after dark. “Just like the main game, we wanted to capture a snapshot of a specific time and place in American history, and let the player experience it.”

Since Sinclair Parish is a small rural township in the countryside near the Bayou, expect lots of opportunities to tear through turns, jump gaps and run from the law. Harms adds, “The gameplay is really centered around driving and pushing that as far as possible, while also feeling like a natural extension of the free racing DLC we released not too long ago.”

 
MORE HOLLYWOOD ACTION

Oh, sure, you’ll have your fill of Hollywood-caliber car chases, but some of the additions that come with “Faster, Baby!” let you carve corners in slow motion and add new firepower to slow enemies down.  To play up Lincoln’s situational awareness that he’s honed in combat, you’ll be able to briefly channel that adrenaline into pulling off awesome driving stunts. So go ahead and thread the needle through traffic.

With ”Faster, Baby!” we’re also introducing a couple new combat mechanics perfectly suited for causing destruction on-the-go. Namely, you’ll now have access to proximity mines so you can lay out traps on the backroads and the ability to toss grenades from your car while enemies are in hot pursuit.

Complete the objectives in the story, and you’re unlocking new fleet cars for tooling around New Bordeaux, new outfits and a new weapon for taking down Slim – as well as changing the dynamic in how you can continue your fight against the Marcanos when you get back to “Bourbon City.”

Get ready to enjoy some southern hospitality, Mafia III-style, when the “Faster, Baby!” DLC rolls into town on March 28th.
Mafia III - JosephB2K


Ever since we welcomed you to the streets of New Bordeaux in October, we promised more killer content for Mafia III. You’ve asked about what’s coming next – and when. Today, we’re giving you more information about the DLC story expansions for Mafia III, as well as a tease into what you’re going to see in our first expansion, “Faster, Baby!”

First, though, here’s a quick look at what we’ve done so far – and a glance at what’s coming next. Keep in mind that this is a targeted timeline, but dates may shift slightly in content development. If that happens, we’ll let you know.

PAID STORY EXPANSION CONTENT UPDATE
For all our fans out there dying to head back to the bayou, we’ve got more paid story content coming your way. This is what your Season Pass covers – three major paid expansions delivering the next chapters in the Mafia III crime drama, plus more locations, action and rewards to Mafia III.

Ever since the team wrapped production for the game’s launch, we’ve been hard at work expanding the world of New Bordeaux. So, with that, here’s what you can look forward to in 2017. As we said above, keep in mind that precise dates may shift.

“Faster, Baby!”

End of March 2017

Fast cars, dramatic chases, and epic stunt driving take center stage as Lincoln joins forces with Roxy Laveau, a sister-in-arms out to take down a corrupt Sheriff terrorizing Civil Rights activists on the outskirts of New Bordeaux.

“Stones Unturned”

May 2017

When a merciless rival resurfaces in New Bordeaux, Lincoln must join forces with CIA agent John Donovan to settle a blood feud that began in the war-torn jungles of Vietnam.

“Sign of the Times”

July 2017

A string of ritualistic killings has New Bordeaux on the edge of terror. At Father James’ request, Lincoln agrees to hunt down the cult responsible, a quest that will take him from the dark heart of the old bayou to the drug-ridden counterculture of the inner city.

All three of these story expansions will deliver tight, focused, and compelling narratives, while also introducing new gameplay mechanics, activities, environments and rewards. 

 
3 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT “FASTER, BABY!”  

We recently chatted with Hangar 13’s Narrative Director, Bill Harms, about Mafia III’s upcoming DLC. We’ll be revealing all of the details on “Faster, Baby!” in the coming weeks, but here’s three things to keep in mind:
  • We listened to you, our fans, and we’re delivering another killer story. This tightly-told tale gets you right into the action and doesn’t stop. As Bill Harms says himself:

    Harms: “We were really humbled by the response to the characters and the story in Mafia III, so we wanted to double-down on that as much as possible, while also providing players with different gameplay experiences. Mafia III focuses on the systematic destruction of Sal Marcano's empire, racket-by-racket, while all of the expansions tell direct, linear stories."
     
  • We’re introducing you to a whole new part of New Bordeaux you’ve never seen before.
     
  • This story expansion features intense action, highlighted by thrilling stunt driving and high octane car chases in the bayou!
In the coming weeks, we’ll be revealing much more on “Faster, Baby!” including its incredible new environment, strong female lead, new gameplay mechanics and activities, and of course, the DLC story expansion’s power-crazed antagonist. Stay tuned right here on the Mafia blog and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube to get the news right as it hits.

ORIGINALLY POSTED: 12/20/2016

UPDATED: 1/24/2017

As soon as we wrapped development on Mafia III, we were off to the races working on post-launch content. Last month, we delivered 11 additional outfits for Lincoln to wear while taking down the mob.

Now, it’s time to tear up the streets of New Bordeaux with Races, Car Customization and more.

Here’s what’s rolling into town for the latest Mafia III content patch.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pkm-IPzaWzE

CAR CUSTOMIZATION!



This was one of the big requests from the fans. Today, we’re delivering with some seriously cool customizations for Lincoln’s fleet of up to 10 cars. You heard that right, 10: The six you earn through playing the game, the three cars those who own the Family Kick-Back* have access to…and an unlockable 10th car which we’ll get to in a minute.

First step to your very own custom, cherry-ed out rides: Get over to one of the nine Big Rick’s Garage locations around New Bordeaux. From there, start selecting what kind of Decals, Exhausts, Spoilers, Superchargers and Wheels you want on your car. With this content patch, you’ll have over 50 unique customizations for your fleet.

We’ve also added 20 custom license plates to the game so that you can show your flair when displaying some “NWBRDX” pride or paying your respects to “MRCLAY.” So switch up those gear ratios and get ready to race!

What you’re able to install, though, is all up to what you unlock. How do you unlock these new options, you ask?

CAR RACES!



We’ve said many times that the inspiration for the driving in Mafia III were the classic car chase films of the late 1960s and early 1970s. You’ve experienced it while playing the game – now it’s time to stomp down the pedal and race! Whether you’re taking tight turns in a muscle car or blazing through oncoming traffic in an exotic model, there are 12 races for you to win throughout New Bordeaux – six circuit lap races and six point-to-point races.

The races become available after the first sit-down with all three lieutenants. Whenever you’re cruising around the open world (and not getting chased by the cops), look for the race markers on the map and drive on over in your favorite sports or exotic car.

Place in the top spots to win, unlock customizations…and get the pink slip to a 10th car you can add to your permanent fleet!



This is the Griffin Marauder! Only way you can get it is by ruling the race courses.

…MORE OUTFITS!



Cars aren’t the only ones getting a new look with this update, we’ve also rolled in three more outfits for Lincoln to rock as he makes his way through New Bordeaux.

Two of the new looks available are “Bad, Bad Mr. Burke” (complete with ‘stache and flat cap) and “On the Prowl.”

…CHANNEL YOUR INNER MAFIOSO!



If you link Mafia III with your My2K account, you can also score Lincoln a sweet three-piece suit Outfit (The “Classico”) and a custom revolver (“Il Duca”)!

My2k Sign Up is now available in-game and online – so link it up, now! Already linked? You should be able to find the Classico in your wardrobe and the arms dealer will be stocked with Il Duca right away.

…MORE ON THE WAY!

We were laser-focused to deliver this racing update so that you could roll into the New Year in style, but we do have more coming early next year. Namely, more customization and the ability to further enhance the performance of the cars in your fleet.

And, as with other updates, we continue rolling in patches and fixes as we go.

In short, we continue working to make your stay in New Bordeaux awesome.

Thanks for joining our family.

*The Family Kickback is currently available in your game system’s digital store for $4.99.
