has revealed a new Inside Look video for Mafia III
, the next installment in the popular series developed by Hangar 13
and scheduled to launch on October 7, for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC. Set in a reimagined New Orleans in 1968, one of the most tumultuous years in American history, 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 - players can choose their path using cunning, stalking and deception, or through overwhelming force and firepower.
