Mafia III had a bit of a rocky launch with some rough technical issues but the story DLC has alleviated that to some degree. The third and final DLC chapter, Sign of the Times, arrives on July 25th and it's quite a bit different than anything else the game has tackled.
Lincoln will be tasked with infiltrating a deranged cult group called The Ensanglante, and safeguarding a young woman who was the victim of one of their ghastly rituals. Sign of the Times looks like much more of a psychological thriller than the previous two DLC chapters, with Lincoln having to keep a grip on his sanity as he investigates the cult. Check out the trailer below for a peek at the upcoming DLC.
With Faster, Baby!, Lincoln Clay went on high-speed chases through Sinclair Parish, while in Stones Unturned, he partnered with John Donovan in an explosive action adventure. In Sign of the Times, Lincoln is pitted against a deranged and violent group of cultists called The Ensanglante, who are hell-bent on restoring righteousness and order to New Bordeaux through violent rituals. The cult uses a hallucinogenic drug to bend its members to their will, distorting their perception of reality and turning them into killers. When Lincoln discovers The Ensanglante has used Sammy’s bar for their rituals and finds a lone survivor among the terrible aftermath of a brutal ceremony, he vows to protect New Bordeaux from this mysterious new threat in a thrilling 1960s-inspired psychological cat-and mouse game that will push Lincoln’s grip on reality to the brink.
To infiltrate The Ensanglante, Lincoln will call upon his spec-ops training to unravel the mystery of the cult with all-new weapons and tactics, including throwing knives and the powerful new slow-mo shooting combat technique.
In addition to protecting New Bordeaux from the mysterious new threat, in Sign of the Times, players will also have the opportunity to restore Sammy’s bar to its former glory, symbolically completing Lincoln’s story of redemption.
