Mafia III is getting three 'tightly-told' story expansions in 2017


First up is ‘Faster, Baby!’ in March

Oh don’t you worry, Mafia III is still getting that story DLC. There’s a season pass, after all! Today, developer Hangar 13 outlined its release schedule for the three upcoming expansions:

Faster, Baby! (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.”

Stones Unturned (May 2017)

  • “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 (July 2017)

  • “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.”

Those estimated dates are liable to change, but that’s the general time frame. Notably, the studio intends to make all three of these story add-ons “tight, focused” narratives. That seems well-advised.

Writing in a blog post, narrative designer Bill Harms added that, after taking in feedback about the game’s story and characters, the team “wanted to double-down on [those aspects] as much as possible, while also providing players with different gameplay experiences.” If you’ve not yet had your fill of Mafia III with the on-disc content, this sounds like it’ll be worth keeping an eye on.
