In a re-imagined 1968 New Orleans setting, you are Lincoln Clay, combat-hardened Vietnam vet and sole survivor of the city’s slaughtered black mob. Hell-bent on revenge against the Italian Mafia responsible, build a new crime family on the ashes of the old and inflict military-grade retribution any way you choose to take down your enemies and own the city.
It’s 1968 and the rules have changed. After years of combat in Vietnam, Lincoln Clay knows this truth: Family isn’t who you’re born with, it’s who you die for. Now back home in a reimagined New Orleans, Lincoln is set on escaping a criminal past. But when his surrogate family, the black mob, is betrayed and wiped out by the Italian Mafia, Lincoln blazes a path of revenge and redemption through the Mafioso responsible. It will take more than a few friends to make it in this new world. Intense gun fights, visceral hand-to-hand combat, white knuckle driving and street smarts will all be needed. But with the right crew, tough decisions and some dirty hands, it’s possible to make it to the top of the city's underworld. It’s time to create a new family on the ashes of the old.
Immerse yourself in a vast, diverse and seedy open world ruled by the mob and corrupt officials and richly detailed with the sights, sounds and emotionally-charged social atmosphere of one of the most turbulent years in American history.
