I’ll admit, I’ve yet to play Mafia III, but now with this news I’ll have the chance to check it out before heading to buy the game. What is it you ask? 2K and Hangar 13 today announced that a free playable demo of Mafia III, the thrilling organized crime drama set in the immersive open world of 1968 New Bordeaux, is now available for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, and Windows PC via Steam.
This means players like you and I can experience the entire first act of Mafia III, featuring an exhilarating bank heist gone wrong that sets the stage for betrayal and Lincoln Clay’s revenge against the Italian mob in New Bordeaux, a re-imagined 1960s New Orleans. Players who wish to continue their experience can transfer over their progress when they purchase the full game*. Yes, as you just read what you play in the demo will transfer to the full game id you decide to purchase the game. On top of this DLC is out for it as well.
Faster, Baby!, the first paid DLC for Mafia III, is also now available. Faster, Baby! introduces new narrative and more to explore, set alongside the events in Lincoln Clay’s story of revenge in Mafia III. New Bordeaux expands with the addition of Sinclair Parish, a town west of the Bayou where Lincoln teams up with a new character, Roxy Laveau, to take down the corrupt and powerful Sheriff “Slim” Beaumont. New driving and combat mechanics add to Lincoln’s repertoire as he fights for control of Sinclair Parish, with new weapons for his arsenal and vehicles for his fleet.
Faster, Baby! is the first of three DLC offerings available individually, or collectively as part of the Mafia III Season Pass** at a discount price. The upcoming Stones Unturned and Sign of the Times DLC launch this summer, and introduce new content, characters, gameplay, and narrative set alongside the main story in Mafia III. The Mafia III Season Pass is available now for PS4™ system, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
