3 months away from the ending of 2016, gamers seem to not run out of good games to watch out for. Last August, the gaming industry went en masse in Cologne, Germany for Gamescom, the biggest European videogames show. That meant there were a number of game trailers released and fortunately, "Mafia 3" happened to be one of them.

According to Pocket-lint, the fans can no longer wait for the full release of "Mafia 3." They said that everything they have seen in the trailer has only raised their expectations. More so, "The 1960s soundtrack is almost worth it on its own.", they said.

As reported by Ubergizmo, 2K Games, an American video game company, will release their latest title in the "Mafia" franchise in October. They confirmed that a mobile game will also be released and this is called "Mafia 3: Rivals."

"Mafia 3" is the first new addition to the franchise in years. The fans have been waiting for so long so imagine how thrilled they are about the franchise especially now that there is a mobile version.

Rumours have it that "Mafia 3: Rivals" will have the same setting as the main game "New Bordeaux." However, the players of "Mafia 3: Rivals" will play it from an entirely different perspective. Even so, all of the characters, locations, and events are the same as the console version; the mobile version plays more like an RPG (Role-playing Game).

The players of "Mafia 3: Rivals" will take on rival gangs in a battle RPG combat. They will have the capability to recruit and train 40 crime bosses from the "Mafia 3" Universe to join their crew and eliminate any opponents that get in their way.

The gamers who want to fully experience "Mafia 3: Rivals" may want to get it on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on October 7. On the same date, "Mafia 3: Rivals" mobile version will be released for iOS and Android.
