2K Games has announced plans to offer lots of both free and paid post-release content for the upcoming historical open-world crime action game Mafia III. The game will be released for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on October 7.
Just a reminder: Mafia III, from developer Hangar 13, is set in 1968, with the player controlling the character of Lincoln Clay as he rises up in the organized crime world of New Bordeaux, a fictionalized version of New Orleans. In a blog post, 2K Games says there will be a bunch of free content for Mafia III available after launch, such as new outfits for Lincoln and new weapons. There will also be additional car customization features post-launch, along with free races that players can join:
Take your tricked-out fleet into the city and enter a series of races. From there, you can earn money, new customization options for your car, and other awesome rewards. We'll have more details on exactly how the races will work in the future.
There will also be three paid story-based expansions for Mafia III, all of which will have new weapons, cars, races and outfits. Here's a look at each of these expansions:
- "Faster, Baby!" - Fast cars, dramatic chases, and stunt driving take center stage as Lincoln joins forces with his former flame, Roxy Laveau, to take down a corrupt Sheriff terrorizing Civil Rights activists on the outskirts of New Bordeaux.
- "Sign of the Times" - 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.
- "Stones Unturned" - 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.
Each of these expansions can be purchased separately, or you can get all three as part of the game's Season Pass for $29.99. Mafia III is available for pre-order for $59.99, or you can get the Deluxe Edition for $79.99 that has both the main game and access to the Season Pass content.
