Mafia 3's third DLC expansion, Sign of the Times, launches in two weeks

Mafia's third DLC expansion, Sign of the Times, is slated for release on 25th July.

This campaign add-on sees protagonist Lincoln Clay going to war with a nefarious cult called the Ensanglante that has taken over Sammy's bar and uses psychedelic drugs to brainwash citizens of New Bordeaux and turn them into killing machines. By thinning out the Ensanglante herd, you'll gradually restore Sammy's to its former glory.

Sign of the Times will introduce some new weapons and mechanics like throwing knives and a slow-mo shooting skill.

Multiple endings confirmed.

Mafia 3 developer Hangar 13 has premiered 12 minutes of in-game footage via a developer walkthrough with IGN.

Creative director Haden Blackman takes us through 2K's virtual version of the Louisiana bayou in 1968. You play as Vietnam vet Lincoln Clay, a mobster from the "black mob" trying to take down the Italian mafia his crime family has been at war with.

Through this brief glimpse at the game we get to see a good deal of shooting, stealth and driving with plenty of explosions set against the southern sunset. The time period also ensures some classic rock tunes like The Rolling Stones' Paint it Black, which comes on during a car chase towards the end of this developer walkthrough.
