Mafia ΙΙΙ has revealed its third DLC content pack and it includes a few new gameplay elements, as well as, cars and gear to earn. It’s titled “Sign of the Times” and is set to release on July 25th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
According to the Narrative Director, Bill Harms, this content focus around a cult by the name of The Ensanglante. You will be dealing with these fanatical cult members throughout New Bordeaux, while trying to “unravel the clues and free a woman from the grips of a bloodthirsty cult.”
In a blog post on the Mafia ΙΙΙ website senior writer, Ed Fowler, gave more detailed descriptions on the new gameplay in Signs of the Times:
“From the moment that the “Sign of the Times” DLC kicks off, you’re in for more deliberate pacing. There’s a mystery to solve with Lincoln searching for stray objects left behind, strange writing – you’ll even examine bodies for clues. By eyeballing the environment and using a blacklight flashlight to uncover hints, you’ll zero in on where The Ensanglante operate and what the hell their endgame is for New Bordeaux. At key points in this DLC, we have these investigation zones where you’ll methodically look for clues that reveal more of the truth… and it can quickly turn a corner where you’ll be dealing with cult members in tense firefights.”
“There’s crazed, knife-wielding cultists that will taunt you and jump out from nowhere. Not to mention throwing knives you’ll be able to silently hurl back at them. As you scour new locations inside New Bordeaux city limits, you’ll also fight off well-armed psychopaths as they attempt to slow down your search.
“Speaking of slowing down, “Sign of the Times” introduces slow-motion gunplay. Once triggered, you have a few extra seconds to take down enemies. However, for those able to skillfully pull off headshots, you’ll extend the slow-mo timer – so take aim!”
