In Mafia 3, we play as mixed-race Vietnam War veteran Lincoln Clay. Lincoln finds himself becoming a member of the Black mob but when the group is betrayed by the Italian mob, killing the friends Lincoln saw as family, the game’s protagonist sets out to exact revenge. The game follows his quest to destroy the Italian mob by any means possible.
In a brand new Mafia 3 gameplay trailer released for E3 2016, those looking forward to the upcoming crime sandbox get a significant look at the game and exactly what Lincoln Clay will be able to get up to. The 20 minute video details the districts of New Bordeaux (developer Hangar 13’s imagining of New Orleans) and the many chaotic and explosive methods Lincoln can use to hurt the Italian mob’s operations. Watch the Mafia 3 gameplay footage after the break.
