As promised, Hangar13 and 2K Games have released the One Way Road story trailer this morning along with the release date for Mafia III.
The new trailer shows off a much better looking game than what we saw from the preview footage released last year by media outlets, and the story sounds quite interesting as well. You can check out the trailer at the bottom of the post.
Here’s the official story synopsis from the press release:
Mafia III is set in the open world of 1968 New Bordeaux, a reimagined version of New Orleans bustling with activity and complete with era-inspired cars, fashion and music. After years of combat in Vietnam, Lincoln Clay knows this truth: family isn’t who you’re born with, it’s who you die for. Now, back home in New Bordeaux, Lincoln is set on escaping his criminal past. But when his surrogate family, the black mob, is betrayed and wiped out by the Italian Mafia, Lincoln builds a new family from the ashes of the old and blazes a path of military-grade revenge through those responsible. Intense gun fights, visceral hand-to-hand combat, white-knuckle driving, hard choices and street smarts will all be required to survive the mean streets of New Bordeaux. But with the right crew, it’s possible to make it to the top of the city’s underworld.
Mafia III will release on October 7 of this year for the PS4, Xbox One and PC. Stay tuned to OnlySP on Facebook and Twitter for further updates.
