Mafia III’s Story Expansions Are All Expected to Launch by July, Here’s What to Expect
Hangar 13 and 2K announced today that Faster, Baby!, the first story expansion for Mafia III, is releasing at the end of March 2017. They’ll follow this up with the Stones Unturned and Sign of the Times story expansions in May 2017 and July 2017, respectively.
After noting that these release windows are targets, and dates may shift slightly during development, Hangar 13 said, “All three of these story expansions will deliver tight, focused, and compelling narratives, while also introducing new gameplay mechanics, activities, environments, and rewards.”
Here’s what to expect from each of the expansions:
Faster, Baby! (End of March 2017)
Fast cars, dramatic chases, and epic stunt driving take center stage as Lincoln joins forces with Roxy Laveau, a sister-in-arms out to take down a corrupt Sheriff terrorizing Civil Rights activists on the outskirts of New Bordeaux.
Stones Unturned (May 2017)
When a merciless rival resurfaces in New Bordeaux, Lincoln must join forces with CIA agent John Donovan to settle a blood feud that began in the war-torn jungles of Vietnam.
Sign of the Times (July 2017)
A string of ritualistic killings has New Bordeaux on the edge of terror. At Father James’ request, Lincoln agrees to hunt down the cult responsible, a quest that will take him from the dark heart of the old bayou to the drug-ridden counterculture of the inner city.
Discussing Faster, Baby!, Narrative Director Bill Harms said there will be a whole new part of New Bordeaux you’ve never seen before, you’ll experience intense action in the form of stunt driving and car chases in the bayou, and they’ve doubled-down on the story. Harms added, “Mafia III focuses on the systematic destruction of Sal Marcano’s empire, racket-by-racket, while all of the expansions tell direct, linear stories.”
Expect to hear about Faster, Baby!’s new area, female lead, gameplay mechanics and activities, and antagonist in the coming weeks.
By picking up the $29.99 USD Season Pass, you’ll receive access to all three story expansions. Standalone prices haven’t been given yet.
