A new behind-the-scenes video from 2K Games offers some insight into Mafia III’s recent reveal trailer.
According to Mafia III’s Executive Producer Andy Wilson, the concept of “family” takes on a unique role in the game. Lincoln, Mafia III’s protagonist, spends much of the game trying to take down the Italian Mob, recruiting three lieutenants along the way. Their bonds strengthen, despite each character’s differences, turning them into a ragtag family unit.
It’s interesting to note that Vito Scallone, Mafia 2’s main character, is one of Lincoln’s lieutenants. His journey was certainly a turbulent one, giving him plenty of reasons to turn his back on the environment he grew up in.
Mafia III is set to release next year.
