Hangar 13 reveals the release date and trailer for Mafia 3‘s first piece of story DLC. Called Faster, Baby!, the additional content sees lead character Lincoln Clay team up with a new character named Roxy and head to a new location outside of New Bordeaux.
Faster, Baby! is just one of a handful of planned Mafia 3 DLC expansions, with several more to be released throughout the summer.
Mafia 3 Faster, Baby! DLC Release Date + Trailer
In a new trailer for the DLC, developer Hnagar 13 confirms that Faster, Baby! will be released on March 28, also offering an inside look at the content and its new setting. Sinclair Parish is a new location outside of New Bordeaux (but in the same county) that’s described as a “unique location” in terms of the civil rights issues going on at the time.
In Sinclair Parish, Lincoln and Roxy will be fighting against a Sherriff who has been terrorising civil rights activists. The dev team also describes the location is a “small town that’s trying to protect itself in every wrong way,” so players should expect Faster, Baby! to address racism as much as the main Mafia 3 story campaign did.
The developer also details the new gameplay features and activities. For example, players should expect “a lot of stunt driving” as Sinclair Parish has a lot of jumps built-in and there are missions that require driving like a “mad man.” The Mafia 3 DLC also includes two new outfits, two new vehicles and a herbalism activity which sees Lincoln ‘grow’ his criminal empire by growing marijuana.
Mafia 3 players will also be able to throw explosives from vehicles, including grenades and Molotov’s and they will be able to slow down time in vehicles too, while proximity mines will be added to the game as well. According to an official comment on the game’s Facebook page, these new features will be available to all players not just those who’ve purchased the Faster, Baby! DLC.
In the video, Hangar 13 even offers up some details on future Mafia 3 DLC expansions. Out in May, Stones Unturned features Lincoln and Donovan and addresses the Cold War in an effort to look at “what’s going on in the real world” in a “natural way.” Meanwhile, the Signs of the Times DLC is due out in July and features cults and investigations.
