2K (the developer behind Mafia III) have done something that we hope becomes a bit of a trend with future AAA releases, and they’ve announced what we can expect post-release on Mafia III! As we all know, it’s all too easy to fork out for a season pass in the blind hope that you’ll like what additional content is going to be produced.
This is what 2K have stated:
“New Bordeaux is a big place – it’s loaded with history and hidden alleys to explore. When we built the world for Mafia III, we wanted it to really feel alive and grow with you. We’re doing just that with free, recurring content that gets delivered to everyone who buys the game. If you love your time in New Bordeaux and don’t want to leave – we’re also working on unique story expansions coming to Mafia III”.
So, whether you buy the game through pre-order, on day one or just sit back and wait -you’ll still receive free new features and content after the game’s initial launch on the 7th of October. Which is great!
Here is what you’ll be getting for free:
30 days after the game launches, everyone will receive the “Judge, Jury and Executioner” golden weapons pack.
All New Character Outfits
2K have listened to the fans and finally – we’ll be able to change Lincoln’s outfit! Define your own take on Lincoln and dress him up to suit your own personal tastes.
MORE Vehicle Customization
The Mafia games already contain vehicle upgrades but this will be expanding! Add new wheels to your favourite ride, personalise your number plate, add a custom paint job and you’ll have even more options to boost your vehicle’s performance.
Once you’ve decked out your fleet, you can take to the city and enter a series of races! By doing this you can earn some great rewards, like money, new customisation options for your car, and other Details on how exactly the races will work
2K have already began work on brand new story expansions. So when you finish Mafia III and you want more – more story, more locations, and more action – you’ll have something to move on to! The expansions are completely separate experiences that delve much deeper into Lincoln Clay’s time in New Bordeaux. The Italian Mafia isn’t the only threat Lincoln faces.
Now, here is a quick little teaser of three major planned expansions:
Fast cars, dramatic chases, and stunt driving take center stage as Lincoln joins forces with his former flame, Roxy Laveau, to take down a corrupt Sheriff terrorizing Civil Rights activists on the outskirts of New Bordeaux.
“Sign of the Times”
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.
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.
The paid expansions will also offer exclusive vehicles, weapons, outfits and races based upon their themes. As well as the new story and characters that these expansions bring, you’ll also find new activities to have fun with as you expand your criminal empire! If you don’t feel like shelling out for the Season Pass, each of these stories will be available for sale individually.
