Mafia III has been eagerly awaited by many, and despite today’s news that you can now begin pre-ordering and pre-downloading the game for Xbox One, it remains eagerly anticipated. The damn thing isn’t released until October 7th!
But nevermind – the fact remains that if you feel ready to pre-order the game, you can now go ahead and do so! You never know, they may sell out of digital copies if you don’t get a move on – eh?
There are two versions on the Xbox One Store right now for you to choose from. The bog standard Mafia III Pre-Order Bundle priced here in the UK at £54.99, or for £69.99 you can grab the Mafia III Deluxe Edition Pre-Order. What’s the difference I hear you scream in your best Tony Montana voice? Let me explain.
Mafia III Pre-Order Bundle includes the full game, obviously, and for a limited time only will also ensure you receive both the Lincoln Clay Avatar outfit and the Bayou Gator Avatar prop. Plus, receive the Family Kick-Back which includes 3 exclusive lieutenant-themed vehicles and weapon gifts.
Mafia III Deluxe Edition Pre-Order on the other hand includes exactly the same as the standard bundle, but also has the Mafia III Season Pass thrown in too which will give you instant access to post-release DLC content.
Mafia III is set in the open world of 1968 New Bordeaux, a reimagined version of New Orleans bustling with activity and complete with era-inspired cars, fashion and music. After years of combat in Vietnam, Lincoln Clay knows this truth: family isn’t who you’re born with, it’s who you die for. Now, back home in New Bordeaux, Lincoln is set on escaping his criminal past. But when his surrogate family, the black mob, is betrayed and wiped out by the Italian Mafia, Lincoln builds a new family from the ashes of the old and blazes a path of military-grade revenge through those responsible. Intense gun fights, visceral hand-to-hand combat, white-knuckle driving, hard choices and street smarts will all be required to survive the mean streets of New Bordeaux. But with the right crew, it’s possible to make it to the top of the city’s underworld.
“Mafia III continues 2K’s proud legacy of creating outstanding narrative experiences, and is poised to set a new standard for interactive storytelling,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “With Hangar 13 at the helm, Haden Blackman and his team of talented developers are set to deliver a truly unforgettable experience this October.”
“Mafia III introduces a true open world, rich with its own criminal ecosystems to the franchise, while still upholding the strong narrative storytelling and immersive setting that the previous Mafia games are known for,” said Haden Blackman, studio head and creative director at Hangar 13. “New Bordeaux in 1968 provides a unique and powerful backdrop for our hard-boiled story of crime, betrayal, loyalty and revenge.”
