Now Playing: Mafia III - Death Suits You Live Action Trailer

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

2K Games today released a live-action trailer for upcoming crime game Mafia III. Titled "Death Suits You," the video sets up some of the story, showing members of Lincoln Clay's adoptive family being murdered by the Italian mob.

This doesn't sit well with him. Clay proceeds to gun down a member of the opposing mob in broad daylight. He even attends the man's funeral, as if to send a message.

This short video follows another trailer this week that introduced players to Clay and his troubled past. He grew up as an orphan and was raised on the streets of New Bordeaux, which is Mafia III's take on New Orleans. Clay became an outlaw when he fell in with the black mob and eventually took off for the Vietnam War. When he returns, he discovers the Italian mob--led by gangster Sal Marcano--has wiped out Clay's friends and associates. Naturally, he wants revenge, and taking the Italian mob down in 1968 is at the heart of the story.

In other recent news about the game, 2K has announced there will be more than 100 songs on the soundtrack, including "The House of the Rising Sun," "Paint It Black," and "All Along the Watchtower." Another trailer used Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Born on the Bayou" (though this doesn't necessarily mean it will be featured in the game).

Additionally, there will also be a $150 Mafia III Collector's Edition that comes with the soundtrack on vinyl, a 56-page art book, dog tags for main character Lincoln Clay, faux leather drink coasters, and Playboy lithographs.

To see how Mafia III actually plays, you can check out this 20-minute video that showcases the game's combat, driving, and criminal hideouts.

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