The first big story trailer for Mafia 3 has just been revealed, and you can check it out below. In the trailer we get a glimpse at protagonist Lincoln Clay’s troubled beginning into the world of being a gangster, as well as all-too-familiar images of 60’s era politics and the Vietnam war. The trailer also debuted the game’s official release date of later this fall, on October 7.
A video released by 2K just a few days ago explores the “Criminal Ecology” of Mafia 3, and how Lincoln’s actions effect the other gangs and families of the game. Here’s an excerpt from our post about the details of the game’s world:
“The criminals are all connected to the various open world activities in the game. For example, if you want to take on the gangsters at the construction yard, which has been demoed in the past, you can take on the thugs protecting the operation. Then, Grace explains, you can interrogate the foreman working at the racket. With that information, players will now have a better idea how the construction racket works. Now that Lincoln has the additional information, this will unlock more missions to undertake.”
