Mafia III | DLC expansion “Faster, Baby!” coming in March
Itching to take another trip back to 1960’s era pseudo-New Orleans? You’re in luck, as the fine folks over at 2K Games have just given a little update on the upcoming DLC expansion schedule For Mafia III with this little info graphic:
3 story expansions in 6 months time, not too shabby. While the size and scope of these 3 expansions isn’t clear, the following info was provided:
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.
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.
“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.
In addition, the following specifics were mentioned in regards to “Faster, Baby!”
We listened to you, our fans, and we’re delivering another killer story. This tightly-told tale gets you right into the action and doesn’t stop. As Bill Harms says himself:
Harms: “We were really humbled by the response to the characters and the story in Mafia III, so we wanted to double-down on that as much as possible, while also providing players with different gameplay experiences. Mafia III focuses on the systematic destruction of Sal Marcano’s empire, racket-by-racket, while all of the expansions tell direct, linear stories.”
We’re introducing you to a whole new part of New Bordeaux you’ve never seen before.
This story expansion features intense action, highlighted by thrilling stunt driving and high octane car chases in the bayou!
Also mentioned was a “strong female lead,” so perhaps players will be seeing the world through the eyes of Roxy Leveau, with Clay taking a back seat as a supporting character? Stay tuned.
