Mafia III’s Gamescom Trailer Pulls off the Perfect Heist

Mafia III, The Heist

Where did things go wrong?

Gamescom starts in Cologne, Germany this week with plenty of new looks at some of the biggest games of the year, including Mafia III. 2K Games has released a new trailer for the game called “The Heist,” showing Lincoln Clay and his friends doing just that, pulling off the perfect heist.

The stylish video shows the events that setup the story of Mafia III. After Clay, the game’s protagonist, returns from Vietnam all he has left is his closest friends, his “family.” All that changes the night of the heist however, when the Mafia takes everything from him. You can see a bit of how things unfold in the full trailer down below.

Mafia III launches on October 7 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Four other recent trailers for the game introduce us to its main characters; Lincoln Clay and his three underbosses, Cassandra “The Voodoo Queen,” Thomas Burke “The Anarchist,” and Vito Scalleta from Mafia II. You can also take a look at the vibrant world of New Bordeaux that you’ll be exploring in the game.
