'Mafia III' (ALL) Sign of the Times DLC Details & Date - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on July 11, 2017 @ 10:05 a.m. PDT

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.


With Faster, Baby!, Lincoln Clay went on high-speed chases through Sinclair Parish, while in Stones Unturned, he partnered with John Donovan in an explosive action adventure. In Sign of the Times, Lincoln is pitted against a deranged and violent group of cultists called The Ensanglante, who are hell-bent on restoring righteousness and order to New Bordeaux through violent rituals. The cult uses a hallucinogenic drug to bend its members to their will, distorting their perception of reality and turning them into killers. When Lincoln discovers The Ensanglante has used Sammy’s bar for their rituals and finds a lone survivor among the terrible aftermath of a brutal ceremony, he vows to protect New Bordeaux from this mysterious new threat in a thrilling 1960s-inspired psychological cat-and mouse game that will push Lincoln’s grip on reality to the brink.

To infiltrate The Ensanglante, Lincoln will call upon his spec-ops training to unravel the mystery of the cult with all-new weapons and tactics, including throwing knives and the powerful new slow-mo shooting combat technique.

In addition to protecting New Bordeaux from the mysterious new threat, in Sign of the Times, players will also have the opportunity to restore Sammy’s bar to its former glory, symbolically completing Lincoln’s story of redemption.

Mafia III: Sign of the Times,the third DLC for Mafia III, will be coming July 25.
