Mafia 3 had a rough launch especially on PC and the game has already been patched several times. A new update has launched which not only contains fixes but also includes free cosmetic downloadable content for all players.
The free cosmetic DLC adds 11 new outfits to the game so you can run around as Lincon Clay in style. The new outfits include new action gear, business suit, and various other apparel that many players have asked for since launch. Cosmetic DLC for free is always a nice good will statement from developers and should make players happy with the new appearance options.
regarding the patch, 2K games said "The dev team has also been hard at work addressing your feedback since the game launched on October 7. We’re happy to report that we’ve made a number of improvements on PC included in this patch. But we’re also not done improving the game, and will be making more updates to Mafia III in the future."
The update include:
- UI Improvements
- Improved car reflections
- Improved streaming issues
- Performance optimization
- Fixed audio issues
- Fixed some cases of savegame corruption
- Fixed various issues for Cassandra’s Contraband missions
Mafia 3 still sits on Steam with an overall rating of mixed and while the developers are clearly working to improve the game, you have to wonder if its too late and the long term damage has already been done.
