Mafia 3

2K have announced that Mafia III, the highly anticipated new title from Hangar 13 will be released on October 7th, 2016.

A new trailer has also been released – titled One Way Road – which shows protagonist Lincoln Clay on his path to building a new family after his surrogate family, the black mob, is betrayed and wiped out by the Italian Mafia.

We have high hopes for this one. Mafia II was an underatted gem last generation, often overlooked while all eyes were on the likes of Grand Theft Auto 4 and 5 and Red Dead Redemption.

If Hangar 13 can continue the work of 2K Czech by combining a strong story with attention to period detail – as the trailer and these screen shots suggest – then this could be a real highlight.

Mafia III will come to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC on October 7th, 2016.


Keep the family happy and pre-order Mafia III on Amazon.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
