Here’s the Official update for what’s in store for MAfia III in 2017.
Ever since we welcomed you to the streets of New Bordeaux in October, we promised more killer content for Mafia III. You’ve asked about what’s coming next – and when. Today, we’re giving you more information about the DLC story expansions for Mafia III, as well as a tease into what you’re going to see in our first expansion, “Faster, Baby!”
First, though, here’s a quick look at what we’ve done so far – and a glance at what’s coming next. Keep in mind that this is a targeted timeline, but dates may shift slightly in content development. If that happens, we’ll let you know.
For all our fans out there dying to head back to the bayou, we’ve got more paid story content coming your way. This is what your Season Pass covers – three major paid expansions delivering the next chapters in the Mafia III crime drama, plus more locations, action and rewards to Mafia III.
Ever since the team wrapped production for the game’s launch, we’ve been hard at work expanding the world of New Bordeaux. So, with that, here’s what you can look forward to in 2017. As we said above, keep in mind that precise dates may shift.
“Faster, Baby!” (End of March 2017)
Fast cars, dramatic chases, and epic stunt driving take center stage as Lincoln joins forces with Roxy Laveau, a sister-in-arms out to take down a corrupt Sheriff terrorizing Civil Rights activists on the outskirts of New Bordeaux.
“Stones Unturned” (May 2017)
When a merciless rival resurfaces in New Bordeaux, Lincoln must join forces with CIA agent John Donovan to settle a blood feud that began in the war-torn jungles of Vietnam.
“Sign of the Times” (July 2017)
A string of ritualistic killings has New Bordeaux on the edge of terror. At Father James’ request, Lincoln agrees to hunt down the cult responsible, a quest that will take him from the dark heart of the old bayou to the drug-ridden counterculture of the inner city.
All three of these story expansions will deliver tight, focused, and compelling narratives, while also introducing new gameplay mechanics, activities, environments and rewards.
We recently chatted with Hangar 13’s Narrative Director, Bill Harms, about Mafia III’s upcoming DLC. We’ll be revealing all of the details on “Faster, Baby!” in the coming weeks, but here’s three things to keep in mind:
1. We listened to you, our fans, and we’re delivering another killer story. This tightly-told tale gets you right into the action and doesn’t stop. As Bill Harms says himself:
Harms: “We were really humbled by the response to the characters and the story in Mafia III, so we wanted to double-down on that as much as possible, while also providing players with different gameplay experiences. Mafia III focuses on the systematic destruction of Sal Marcano’s empire, racket-by-racket, while all of the expansions tell direct, linear stories.”
2. We’re introducing you to a whole new part of New Bordeaux you’ve never seen before.
3. This story expansion features intense action, highlighted by thrilling stunt driving and high octane car chases in the bayou!
In the coming weeks, we’ll be revealing much more on “Faster, Baby!” including its incredible new environment, strong female lead, new gameplay mechanics and activities, and of course, the DLC story expansion’s power-crazed antagonist.
