Hangar 13 announced today that the first major story expansion for their hit open world action title Mafia III will be released in March, and that the following two expansions will be released during the months of May and July. The developer also shared story details for all three expansions, as well as some interesting tidbits of information regarding the gameplay mechanics that can be expected from the upcoming DLC packs.
DLC 1: 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.
DLC 2: 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.
DLC 3: 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.
All three of these story expansions will deliver tight, focused, and compelling narratives, while also introducing new gameplay mechanics, activities, environments and rewards.
I reviewed Mafia III last year and concluded that while the story is truly great, the open world gameplay gets repetitive and stale. Hopefully the introduction of a more linear storyline will fix those issues.
