The Mafia series has been a solid nod towards the Italian mob genre since its original inception in 2002, but with the third game in this mobster trilogy takes you away from the usual cliché mob antics. Mafia III is a sharp change of pace compared to the familiar Godfather-esque territory of the previous games, as you take on the role of Lincoln Clay – a black Vietnam special forces veteran. Lincoln has just got back from the war and is welcomed back by his adopted brother – a member of the “Black Mob”. That’s important because Mafia 3 doesn’t shy away from the … Read More »

Mafia 3 was released just a few days ago – but that hasn’t stopped it becoming the best-selling game in the series. The third instalment of the open-world gangster trilogy had a rocky start in the run up to release, with choppy frame-rates on the PC and not nearly as much buzz as publisher 2K would’ve liked, despite a heavy marketing push. But you can’t keep a good gangster down, and Mafia 3 has managed to beat Mafia 2’s week one sales record by a staggering 58.7%. However good those figures are – and developers Hangar 13 will be happy … Read More »

Late yesterday Hanger 13 and 2K Studios released a new video that gave us a look at a new family in the Mafia universe. Studio Head and Game Director, Hanaden Blackman, and his team give us a brief introduction to the Marcano family and what we can expect from them in the new game.
