The wait is over fellow gangsters, Mafia 3’s trailer has been released.
You take control of the main protagonist Lincoln Clay. Set in 1968, Lincoln is Half Black, Half White, which has a big impact in the story since it unfolds in the deep south of New Orleans, which at the time was highly racist. Growing up as an orphan, Clay was constantly looking for family, which he found in the army during the Vietnam War.
After returning home from the war, Clay finds a new family in the “Black mob”, But this does not last long as the Black Mob is taken out by the Italian Mob, Clay is shot in the head, and left for dead. Clay wants to take revenge against the Italian Mob for killing the only family he had. This in turn causes a huge power struggle between the many factions in New Orleans.
As Clay you will be able to bring several gang leaders into your own gang to serve as lieutenants. Cassandra and her Haitians, Burke and his Irish, and the protagonist from Mafia 2, Vito Scaletta, who brings his crew of Italians. The three lieutenants will grant you special abilities and unlocks if you show them favour, or betray you if they feel you are over stepping them.
