Meet Mafia III's Moral Compass

Cassandara the underboss

2k have been quiet on their open-world period crime 'em-up for a couple of months, but Lincoln Clay has just resurfaced again. Here's Mafia 3 [official site] setting out its story stall and showing off some very impressive character models that I really hope are not solely restricted to cutscenes.

It's an odd trailer, as it seems to presume any viewer is already fairly familiar with Mafia III's plot to date, so I'd advise you to go watch the previous two clips before you sit down with this one.

Primarily, the latest is here to show off a character named Cassandra, one of three 'underbosses' to the player, and who sounds as though she may be something of a moral compass figure.

I can't help but suspect that the name 'Cassandra' will be no coincidence either - will she be offering ultimately unheeded warnings of doom to player character Lincoln as he falls deeper into villainy during his war against the Mob?

Mafia 3 is due for release October 7, 2016. I'm looking forwards to the soundtrack on this one, given the '68 timeline and New Orleans setting - jazz and blues and Creedence oh my, hopefully.
