NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–2K
and Hangar
13
today announced that Mafia
III
, the thrilling organized crime drama set in the
immersive open world of 1968 New Bordeaux, is now available for
PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC.


Mafia III continues 2K’s pedigree of outstanding
narratives told through rich characters in immersive settings with the
city of 1968 New Bordeaux – a reimagined version of New Orleans –
bustling with activity and complete with era-inspired cars, fashion and
an eclectic mix of music, including more than 100 licensed tracks from
one of the most memorable eras in history. During this turbulent time, a
cloud of corruption hangs in the air and the city has become a haven for
organized crime. The Italian mob controls illegal gambling, drugs, and
prostitution, while corrupt police and politicians line their pockets
with the proceeds.

“Creating epic and lasting narrative experiences is one of our core
pillars, and the teams at Hangar 13 and 2K worked with tireless passion
to continue that legacy with Mafia III,” said Christoph
Hartmann, president of 2K. “Hanger 13’s impressive debut effort takes
the Mafia franchise in an exciting new direction by
combining the cinematic storytelling the series is known for with a true
open world for the first time.”

Mafia III follows the story of Lincoln Clay, a
disenfranchised Vietnam veteran returning from combat and looking for a
sense of belonging. Orphaned as a child, Lincoln at last achieves a
semblance of family with the city’s black mob. But when Lincoln’s new
family is betrayed and slaughtered by Sal Marcano and the city’s Italian
mob, he becomes fixated on revenge. He wages a brutal war against the
Marcano family, disrupting the balance of power in the seedy underworld
of New Bordeaux. As his story unfolds, Lincoln allies himself with other
criminals and builds an empire and a new family of his own.

“Building the open world of New Bordeaux and crafting this hard-boiled
crime drama set in the American South during the late 1960’s has been an
amazing journey for all of us,” said Haden Blackman, studio head and
creative director at Hangar 13. “This is our first game as a studio, and
we’re humbled by the community’s anticipation for Mafia III’s
release. We couldn’t think of a better game to showcase the kinds of
stories we want to tell and player-driven experiences we want to create.”

Standard, limited deluxe and limited collector’s editions of Mafia
III
are now available. The Mafia III Deluxe Edition ($79.99
MSRP) is available digitally and physically in a limited capacity from
select retailers, and includes both the game and access to additional,
post-release downloadable content, including the Season Pass at
