Today during a PAX West panel, 2K Games announced the first details on Mafia III's post-launch DLC. There will be free content as well as paid story expansions.

In terms of the free DLC, players can look forward to new outfits for main character Lincoln Clay. There will also be new weapons through the Judge, Jury, and Executioner pack, which comes out 30 days after the game launches. Additionally, Mafia III's post-launch DLC will include vehicle customization options like new wheels, personalized license plates, and paint jobs. There will be performance-boosters, too.

Also along the lines of cars, Mafia III will add free races that yield bonuses such as money and additional customization options for players who come out on top. There will be even more free DLC outside of all of this, 2K said in a blog post.

As for the story expansions, there will be multiple add-ons that are "wholly separate experiences that reveal more about Lincoln Clay's time in New Bordeaux."

2K teased, "As these stories will reveal, the Italian Mafia isn't the only threat Lincoln faces…"

Here is a rundown of Mafia III's three paid expansions, with descriptions written by 2K:

"Faster, Baby!"

  • Fast cars, dramatic chases, and stunt driving take center stage as Lincoln joins forces with his former flame, Roxy Laveau, to take down a corrupt Sheriff terrorizing Civil Rights activists on the outskirts of New Bordeaux.

"Sign of the Times"

  • A string of ritualistic killings has New Bordeaux on the edge of terror. At Father James' request, Lincoln agrees to hunt down the cult responsible, a quest that will take him from the dark heart of the old bayou to the drug-ridden counterculture of the inner city.

"Stones Unturned"

  • When a merciless rival resurfaces in New Bordeaux, Lincoln must join forces with CIA agent John Donovan to settle a blood feud that began in the war-torn jungles of Vietnam.

These story expansions will include "new activities" and more vehicles, weapons, outfits, and races based on their respective themes. To get a closer look at Mafia III's DLC, click through the images in the gallery above.

The three Mafia III expansions are included with the game's $30 DLC pass. You can buy them individually, but if you're sure you want all three, the season pass is the way to go. 2K says it will cost $40 to buy them individually.

A new trailer was also shown during the panel; it was captured by DualShockers and can be seen below.

Mafia III launches on October 7 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
