'Mafia III' (ALL) Rolls Out Faster, Baby! DLC, Playable Demo

Mafia III will immerse players into a world of organized crime through rich narrative storytelling and a beautifully crafted game world featuring period-accurate cars, music and fashion.

Mafia III is set in a re-imagined New Orleans in 1968, one of the most tumultuous years in American history. This version of New Orleans is bustling with activity, complete with era-inspired cars, fashion and music. During this turbulent time, a cloud of corruption hangs in the air and the city has become a haven for organized crime. The Italian mob controls illegal gambling, drugs, and prostitution, while corrupt police and politicians line their pockets with the proceeds.

Mafia III follows the story of Lincoln Clay, a disenfranchised Vietnam veteran, returning from combat and looking for a home and a place to belong. Orphaned as a child, Lincoln at last achieves a semblance of family with the city’s black mob, finding the surrogate father and brother he has longed for. But when Lincoln’s new family is betrayed and slaughtered by the Italian mob, he becomes fixated on revenge and wages a brutal war against the Italians, disrupting the balance of power in the seedy underworld of New Orleans. As the story progresses, Lincoln allies himself with other criminals and builds an empire and a new family of his own that transforms the city.

Throughout the riveting story of Mafia III, players choose their path to revenge and build their own crime empire using cunning, stalking and deception, or through overwhelming force and firepower. Mafia III combines the best of cinematic storytelling with a dynamic narrative structure that responds to player choices, set in a vibrant city that responds to Lincoln’s actions.

A free playable demo (+-25GB) of Mafia III is now available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. Players can experience the entire first act of Mafia III, featuring an exhilarating bank heist gone wrong that sets the stage for betrayal and Lincoln Clay’s revenge against the Italian mob in New Bordeaux, a re-imagined 1960s New Orleans. Players who wish to continue their experience can transfer over their progress when they purchase the full game (played on the same platform).

Faster, Baby!, the first paid DLC for Mafia III, is also now available. Faster, Baby! introduces new narrative and more to explore, set alongside the events in Lincoln Clay’s story of revenge in Mafia III. New Bordeaux expands with the addition of Sinclair Parish, a town west of the Bayou where Lincoln teams up with a new character, Roxy Laveau, to take down the corrupt and powerful Sheriff “Slim” Beaumont. New driving and combat mechanics add to Lincoln’s repertoire as he fights for control of Sinclair Parish, with new weapons for his arsenal and vehicles for his fleet.

Faster, Baby! is the first of three DLC offerings available individually, or collectively as part of the Mafia III Season Pass at a discount price. The upcoming Stones Unturned and Sign of the Times DLC launch this summer, and introduce new content, characters, gameplay, and narrative set alongside the main story in Mafia III. The Mafia III Season Pass is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
