Clans

is an open world third-person action-adventure video game developed by Hangar 13 and published by 2K Games. It is the third installment in the Mafia series, and the debut title for Hangar 13.

Gameplay

Mafia III is an action-adventure video game played in a third-person perspective, in which players assume control of Lincoln Clay, a Vietnam War veteran on a quest to seek revenge for his friends, who are murdered by local mobs. The game is set in 1968 New Orleans, with the open world design allowing players to freely explore the game's world. Players can complete objectives using a variety of approaches. For example, players can use the weapons provided in the game like shotguns and revolvers, to eliminate all the enemies. Alternatively, they can utilise stealth tactics through the entire mission without being noticed by enemies. The core gameplay revolves around gunplay. In addition, players can also perform executing moves and melee-combat. The game also features a cover system, allowing players to take cover behind objects to avoid enemy gunfire. Players can also interrogate non-playable characters after defeating them in order to gain more information on his objectives. Players can attack and overrun locations owned by the Italian mob, and assign one of their lieutenants to operate the location. The available lieutenants are Cassandra, Burke, and Vito Scaletta; Vito was previously featured as the protagonist of Mafia II.

Development

The game was first rumored in August 2012. In November 2012, 2K Czech, the developer of the original Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven and Mafia II, announced that the company was working on a "top secret, AAA game". However, the company was later restructured on January 10, 2014, and the main studio in Prague was shuttered, with resources being allocated to a new headquarters in Novato, California. A new studio called Hangar 13 was established by 2K Games in Novato in the same year. Headed by Haden Blackman, who had previously worked with LucasArts, the studio was said to be working on a new project.

The game was officially teased by 2K on July 28, 2015, and was formally revealed at Gamescom 2015 with a cinematic trailer. Mafia III is set to be released in 2016 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
