New Mafia 3 Trailer Highlights Vicious Combat

Lincoln Clay is a skilled killer.


2K Games has released the newest trailer for Mafia III, this one shining a light on main character Lincoln Clay and all the ways he brings the hurt to his enemies.

The video is titled "Combat" and it doesn't hold back in showing off Clay's brutal skills, which he learned while serving in the Vietnam War. The setup is pretty interesting, as we see CIA operative John Donovan informing a US Senate Intelligence Committee about Clay's skills. The hearing takes place in 1971, after the events of the game, which is set in 1968 in a version of New Orleans called New Bordeaux.

As you can see in the video above, Clay is a master killer, able to take down enemy mobsters any way he wants. In one sequence we see him snapping the neck of a foe, while another segment shows Clay using a sniper rifle to do the job from long range. He is also skilled with a knife and his bare hands.

This is the fourth episode in this particular Mafia III gameplay series; another video this week showed off even more of Clay's brutal and deadly combat skills. Before that, 2K released a video that highlighted the weapons Clay will use in the campaign.
