Mafia 3 Gameplay Shows a 1960s Open World That Feels Totally Fresh

If you're familiar with the Mafia series, you might be wondering why the lead character in this Mafia 3 gameplay isn't wearing a snappy suit and a fedora.

And that's not the only reason the game's fictionalised New Orleans feels fresh.
