At PAX West 2K Games announced their post release plans for Mafia III following its release next month. The content will be a mix of free and paid for DLC, and there’s plenty to get excited about.
2K stated that the free DLC will be available to all players, regardless of whether they pre-ordered Mafia III. The DLC includes weapon packs, skins and additional side missions.
2K have been taking feedback on board and will offer the option to change protagonist Lincoln Clay’s outfit, making him unique to the player’s gaming experience. 30 days after the games release, everyone will be entitled to download the Judge, Jury and Executioner golden weapons pack – featuring some bad-ass looking hand cannons.
Petrolheads are also being catered for, with upgrades to Mafia III’s already exhaustive options for in-game vehicles – additional customisation will now include wheels, personalised licence plates and paint jobs; as well as the ability to boost your ride’s performance. Having pimped your motor, you’ll be able to take to New Bordeaux’s streets and indulge in street races to earn money, further customisation options and further rewards
In terms of side missions, 2K has offered details on the three main paid for DLC packs: “Faster Baby!” puts stunt driving centre stage, as Lincoln Clay joins forces with his old flame, Roxy Laveau, to take down a corrupt sheriff terrorising Civil Rights activists on the outskirts of New Bordeaux. In “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. Last, but by no means least, in “Stones Unturned” Lincoln must join forces with CIA agent John Donovan to settle a blood feud that began in the war-torn jungles of Vietnam.
Mafia III is due for release PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows and OS X on 7th October.
