Mafia III’s newest DLC, ‘Stones Unturned’, is scheduled to release May 30, 2017.
Hype for the DLC began yesterday in a tweet by the official Mafia Twitter page, Mafia Game. Today, May 4, 2017, the DLC’s release date was announced alongside a video detailing the expansion’s contents.
The expansion’s story will revolve around John Donovan, the CIA agent who helped Lincoln Clay—the game’s player-character and protagonist—in the vanilla version of Mafia III. The DLC will also feature a new environment, namely an island that pays homage to Vietnam’s atmosphere through a rainforest-jungle environment. New enemies also make their way between Lincoln and Donovan, and these enemies are highly trained mercenaries as opposed to the run-of-the-mill mafia goons inconveniencing players in Mafia III’s main story. To fight these mercenaries, new weapons will be available. Watch the full video detailing “Stones Unturned” below.
For players who cannot get enough of Mafia III and Lincoln Clay, another expansion—’Faster Baby!’—is already available, while a third—’Sign of the Times’—is expected to release in July. The expansions can be purchased individually or given to players who purchased Mafia III’s Season Pass.
