It’s 1968 and after years of combat in Vietnam, Lincoln Clay knows this truth: family isn’t who you’re born with, it’s who you die for. Now back home in New Bordeaux, Lincoln is set on escaping a criminal past. But when his surrogate family, the black mob, is betrayed and wiped out by the Italian Mafia, Lincoln builds a new family on 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 and street smarts will all be needed. But with the right crew, tough decisions and some dirty hands, it’s possible to make it to the top of the city's underworld.

PCGamer - "New Bordeaux is a gorgeous-looking backdrop."
GamesRadar - "Mafia 3’s core action meld and merge with dynamically satisfying ease, it's the connectedness of the game's wider, meta systems that really fleshes out the sense of New Bordeaux as real place."
Set in New Bordeaux during 1968, Mafia 3 attempts to echo the same vibe as New Orleans in the late 60’s. This time you’re playing as Lincoln Clay, a veteran of the Vietnam war as he vows revenge on the Italian Mob. This classic tale of revenge in the Gangster genre is not something that often comes up in games, and Mafia 3 is right on track to hit all of the right marks. Sporting an amazing licensed soundtrack, the sheer amount of verisimilitude that Mafia 3 can offer is brilliant. Who doesn’t want a bit of Credence Clearwater Revival playing as you shoot up the Italian Mob?
Additionally, gameplay is pretty open-ended, meaning you are free to breathe and take in all of New Bordeaux’s sights at your leisure. Take over locations, interrogate your enemies and much more in this dark Gangster tale set during the Swingin’ 60s.
