E3 2016 is just around the corner, and one of the highly anticipated games coming to the show, Mafia 3, is about to get a world premiere gameplay showcase. Developer Hanger 13, along with the game publisher 2K, will reveal new information about the upcoming action-adventure game.
Mafia 3 Livestream
The Mafia 3 livestream, brought about by IGN, will go live on June 12 at 5:30 pm PT/8:30 pm ET. The live stream will go on air straight from Los Angeles, and fans can watch it directly from their own homes. Players can head here on IGN?s website to watch the livestream.
The official partner, IGN, has also announced that interested fans can watch the Mafia 3 livestream on mobile, PC, consoles and TV. During the gameplay premiere, the studio will also reveal exclusive behind-the-scenes footage by Hanger 13?s development team. It would be interesting to see what else the studio is planning to showcase at E3.
Just a few hours ago, the developer released the Mafia 3 E3 2016 teaser trailer which features multiple cinematics from the upcoming game. The visuals look stunning and features Clay driving a car and being chased by cops, ramming boats into a building, and destroying cars with massive gunfire. As noted in a previous report, the game will feature bars and jazz music. The trailer also features a glimpse of these as well.
Additionally, in the gameplay showcase, we expect to see protagonist Lincoln Clay take over New Orleans by eliminating several gangs of drug mafia. It would be interesting to see the combination of the narrative and cinematic storytelling play out.
The game is set in 1968 and features a reimagined New Orleans. Players will take the role of Lincoln Clay, ?a Vietnam war veteran. The city features nine districts and each of them has two distinct criminal ecologies. Mafia 3 will be released on October 7 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
