Mafia 3 soundtrack detailed by 2K
2K and Hanger 13 have revealed the full licensed soundtrack for Mafia 3, featuring the likes of Johnny Cash, The Rolling Stones and more.
Taking place during the late 1960s in the crime-ridden city of New Bordeaux, Mafia 3 is the latest entry in the acclaimed crime franchise.
It appears the violent adventure is aiming for a musical vibe that reflects its archaic setting, featuring some iconic and memorable tunes from the era.
“Mafia III will treat players to an incredible soundtrack of more than 100 licensed songs from an iconic era in music,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “I’m confident that the rich canvas of nostalgic artists and songs that defined the 1960s will further connect players to the immersive open world of 1968 New Bordeaux.”
