Mafia 3 Release: 10 Things to Know

Mafia 3 is finally upon us and today we want to take a look at the most important things to know right now about the Mafia 3 release for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

Its been over five years since the release of Mafia 2, a period shooter that arrived for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The game followed the story of Vito Scaletta and a number of other memorable characters in the fictional city of Empire Bay.

Mafia 2 received mostly positive reviews due to its solid story line, cast of characters, gunplay, graphics, music, and more.

In the years since its release, fans of the series called on 2K Games to deliver another addition to the Mafia family of games. And deliver it did.

For years, Mafia 3 rumors swirled around teasing PC and console owners, Those rumors really started to pick up last year when the voice actor behind Vito Scaletta said that he, and his employers, had some good news to share.

Last summer, 2k Games and Hanger 13 confirmed Mafia 3 and after now the game is out on shelves. With that in mind we want to take a look at the most important things you need to know, right now, about Mafia 3 and its release on Xbox One, PS4 and Windows PC.

Mafia 3 Glitches

Mafia 3 Glitches

Mafia 3 is plagued with some extremely frustating problems but there are some amusing ones as well. 

YouTube user CrowbCat has put together a compilation that showcases some of Mafia 3's glitches. Some of them are hilarious, others will want to make you pull your hair out. 

You'll see Lincoln fall through the floor. You'll see issues with the game's cover system. You'll see terrible AI play. And you'll also see some bugs that are downright weird.

Hanger 13 has a lot of work ahead and we're hopeful that at least some of these get tackled in the game's next patch. 

Stay tuned.

    The game looks fun. I am excited the most about the cars. Lincoln looks like he is driving a 1967 Chevy impala 2 door. I saw a couple of Cadillac Fleetwood’s or Deville’s based on length. I thought I saw a 59 caddy but, I can’t confirm it. I saw a 40’s chevy truck. mostly GM products in this game I hope to see a 1968 charger it would be my instant favorite.

      In a screenshot I can see a 1964 impala, 60’s international scout, 55 Chevy belair, in the screenshot it shows clay’s 67 impala with a blown up 1960 Cadillac Deville red and white.

    I love Mafia 2 completed it so many times it really made you feel back in time, I hope they continue and you get the feel of being back in the 60’s and a more open world so you can float between missions and doing your own thing.

    You really need to edit this. Under the “story & setting” part, you say 2K games isn’t talking about the release date, and you also say that the game won’t feature Vito Scaletta, when we have in fact known since the game was revealed in August that Vito is one of Lincoln’s lieutenants.

    Game has awesome story so far, i played about 5-7hrs, Car colision damage stupid, From what ive heard a bit repetative further on, From a technical standpoint the lighting in the game is broken, Ive had parts where its been pitch black and you cant see anything, Other parts Lighting becomes blinding but other parts it seems normal, While driving there is pop in, The grass renders in front, The rear mirror is not like for like, The city is static sort of, All you can do besides missions is get medicine for health, Do phone taps and take cash from registers, The game is all about story, Should of been a tv show and not a game….ill push through though

    Lighting is all &^%$#@ up. the chrome on the cars look like concrete pillows. especialy on the 64 Imperials bumper. Crappy. The rain messes with the lights in the night. Mafia 2 was better. This got released way too early.
