2K Games and Take-Two Interactive unveiled the Mafia III Gamescom trailer this week at the event. We actually had the chance to view a hands-off demo of Mafia III at E3 2016 and were very impressed with 2K’s booth, which was one of the highlights of the show. The game takes place in New Bordeaux, Louisiana, which is a fictional version of New Orleans. The trailer focuses on a bank heist and while it isn’t necessarily clear which character are which, as I personally never played Mafia II and the first game was so long ago, the game is action packed and the heist is fast paced.

The Mafia III Gamescom trailer makes us even more excited for the title. It is an open-world action adventure game where choice matters and have dire consequences, which is exciting. Choices shape the gameplay experience and each player’s playthrough can be drastically different. Besides that, the action is impressive with some very cool gameplay mechanics. The title releases on October 7, which seems like an eternity away. While we have to wait a few months, time will fly by as it always does (unless you’re Cartman from South Park waiting for a Wii) and you can find our review of the game right here at Video Game Culture HQ, so stay tuned.
