Mafia III protagonist's life has been anything but a cakewalk


Or so we’re told

We know that Mafia III‘s Lincoln Clay hasn’t had it easy. He’s a black man in the American south during the 1960s (a struggle that developer Hangar 13 hopes to do justice with its New Bordeaux setting). He’s also a Vietnam veteran. Oh yeah, and the Italian mob killed the only family he ever knew.

Although it probably merits more than this short clip, publisher 2K tries to sow the seeds of Clay’s pulpy revenge tale in under one minute. A lot more exposition is needed to effectively tell this story, and that’s something we’ll presumably get upon Mafia III‘s release. Until then, it’s promises of “building a new family,” and some flamethrower and machinegun action.
