April 19, 2016Written by Jason Dunning

Mafia 3 will release on October 7 in North America and Europe for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, 2K and developer Hangar 13 announced today.

Set in the open world of 1968 New Bordeaux, a reimagined version of New Orleans, Mafia 3 stars Lincoln Clay, who returns from Vietnam ready to escape his criminal past:

But when his surrogate family, the black mob, is betrayed and wiped out by the Italian Mafia, Lincoln builds a new family from the ashes of the old and blazes a path of military-grade revenge through those responsible. Intense gun fights, visceral hand-to-hand combat, white-knuckle driving, hard choices and street smarts will all be required to survive the mean streets of New Bordeaux. But with the right crew, it’s possible to make it to the top of the city’s underworld.

You can learn more about Mafia 3 in the new story trailer, titled One Way Road.

In addition to the standard edition of Mafia 3, there will be a $79.99 Deluxe Edition that includes the game and “access to additional, post-release downloadable content, including the Season Pass at additional savings.” There’s also the $149.99 Collector’s Edition, which includes all of the Deluxe Edition content plus the original game score on vinyl, a collectable art book, art prints, and more.

By pre-ordering any version of Mafia 3, you’ll receive the Family Kick-Back, which includes three exclusive lieutenant-themed vehicle and weapon gifts available at launch.
