It seems like we can't go a half a week without another new Mafia 3 trailer or update and that is a good thing. If it was kept silent then it would seem more and more like 2K Games has no faith in what Hangar 13 has put together for us but here is seems like they want to get fully behind it. That all said, here we have yet another trailer for Mafia 3 right out of Gamescom and it is one that I think we've all been waiting for. This one shows us just how the whole story is going to start off with a huge bang and exactly why Lincoln is on his rampage.
By now I am sure we all know that in Mafia 3 we play a man that has been double-crossed by the Italian Mafia. There was no solid reason given as of yet but in the new video called 'The Heist' we get a solid look at the motivations to why the Italians decided to make enemies of the Black Mafia when trying to take them out of the game. The mafia game and not the video game for those who can't follow along. Here we get to see just why they murdered them all and possibly how Lincoln survived the brutal attack that set him on the destruction of the mob here. All in what looks like a solid bit of gameplay too.
Mafia 3 — The Heist
The Mafia took so much from so many in its rise to power in New Bordeaux. When Lincoln Clay came back from Vietnam, his family was all he had. One night would change it all.
I have a feeling that this will all be the tutorial missions of Mafia 3 given the setting and look we have here. Not that this is a bad thing as before now we've been led to believe that the story would have been shown in cut-scenes or flashbacks but here it looks like we get to play-out the mission that set it all up. It does look like a few more things are going on in the background of things as the point blank shot we are left with here would have killed Clay. Maybe this little mook is an ally of ours in some case or chooses not to kill Lincoln as they have a history of sorts. Who knows for now?
What are your thoughts on this new mission for Mafia 3 that we have to see? Do you think this will be the starting mission to get us used to the controls or will this be a flashback mission? Do you see more going on with the character faces like I do or is it just how the video is cut and the scenes play out? Let us know your thoughts and feel free to discuss in the comments below. For more on Mafia 3 in all of its ways please keep your eyes glued in here. We'll have it all and you won't want to miss it.
