The trailer for the “fall’s most promising open-world game”, Mafia 3, has been released, featuring press reviews after the showing at E3, in June.
The song playing in the background is “Bottom of the River”, by the American folk rock band Delta Rae.
The third entry in the popular Mafia game series is set in a 1968 re-imagined version of New Orleans and follows the Vietnam War veteran Lincoln Clay “battling” with the Italian Mafia. With all-new vehicles, weapons and mechanics, Mafia 3 grapples with discrimination and racism issues and how these impact on the crime rate.
Mafia 3, which might be one of the most popular games of 2016, will be released worldwide this fall, on October 7, for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
