Mafia 3 trailer shows both sides of Lincoln Clay: stealthy murder and loud KKK massacres

Mafia 3 combat

Mafia 3 is going to be violent, there’s no doubt about it. Gang wars do tend to be bloody, and protagonist Lincoln Clay sure is looking for buckets of the stuff.

He’s not the Godfather type of overboss either – Clay’s more of a hands-on (someone’s throat) type of guy.

The new trailer, as you can see above, is all about deciding how to dispatch your mobster enemies. Do you want to sneak in and slide a knife in their neck, or do you want to send a message by firing a grenade launcher into their nightclub?

It’s up to you. You can sit on a roof and pick them off with a sniper rifle, or plough your car straight into them, jumping out and finishing the job with whatever hand cannon you happen to be carrying around.

It looks vicious – especially the bit where Clay interrupts aKu Klux Klan meet with an assault rifle. KKK, meet the AK.

Mafia 3 releases in just over a week, on October 7.
