2K and developer Hangar 13 have revealed the contents of the Mafia 3 Collector’s Edition ahead of its 7 October release date.
Pre-orders of the game will also include the Family Kick-Back bonus, which includes three exclusive vehicles and weapons which will be available at launch. The CE will include the following items and cost $150 USD:
- Mafia III: Official Soundtrack of New Bordeaux – 180 gram vinyl pressing featuring some of the 60’s greatest hit makers, including Otis Redding & Carla Thomas, Sam Cooke, The Animals, and more. The vinyl is a sampling of the larger in-game soundtrack, that includes an eclectic mix of Rock, Rhythm and Blues, and Pop, all colliding against a backdrop of war, civil unrest, and sweeping social changes that defined the 1960s.
- Mafia III: Original Game Score – 180 gram vinyl pressing of the original game score for Mafia III. Composed by Jesse Harlin and Jim Bonney, two of the industry’s great composers, the Mafia III original game score is a Rhythm and Blues inspired tour through a city ruled by organised crime and corrupt officials, and the setting for Lincoln Clay’s emotional story of loss and revenge.
- Exclusive Collectible Art Prints – Two lithographs from Playboy and the Alberto Vargas Estate representing a vast collection of art for players to discover in-game.
- The Art of Mafia III Collectable Art Book – A 56-page visual look at the creation of New Bordeaux, a new game world fashioned after New Orleans in the summer of 1968.
- Lincoln Clay Replica Dog Tags – 1960s US military issue replicas. These are the tags of a combat-hardened Vietnam vet fueled by the need for military-grade revenge against the Italian Mafia.
- Faux Leather Establishment Drink Coasters – Representing the Paradiso Casino and Sammy’s in-game criminal establishments, these aren’t just souvenirs, but symbols of Lincoln Clay’s motivations for revenge.
- Season Pass – Future post-release downloadable content bundled at a discount.

To tie-in with the Collectible Art Prints, players will be able to collect Playboy and Alberto Vargas content as they play the game which will include “authentic magazine covers and additional magazine content”.
Finally, Mafia 2 finally makes a return to Steam today with a discount of 80% off (Buy at the PC Invasion Store) and it’s worth picking up if you haven’t played it. The Mafia 2 protagonist Vito Scaletta makes an appearance in Mafia 3 as one on Lincoln Clay’s lieutenants and it’s worth delving into his background prior to the Mafia 3 launch. Mafia 2 is also rather good.
