The images show moody streets with some impressive lighting from streetlights, to shop fronts to neon signs. The interiors look busy with NPC’s enjoying drinks or watching live jazz bands playing on stage while waitresses walk around serving customers.
Mafia 3 will follow Lincoln Clay, an orphan who fought in the Vietnam War. He returns to New Orleans to establish a criminal organisation and oppose the Italian Mafia that have moved into New Orleans. Hanger 13, the games developer, have said Mafia will tackle issues of racism and prejudice against black people that was present in the deep south during 1968 hinting at a deep story.
