|Overview:||Set in 1968, 'Mafia III' takes place during one of the most turbulent years in American history. From the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to the riots at the Democratic National Convention, and growing outrage over the war in Vietnam, the country's fault-lines were not only painfully exposed, they threatened to tear the United States apart. Join Lead Writer William Harms as he discusses how the team at Hangar 13 used real history to inform the game's characters and overarching narrative, and the decisions that drove the inclusion of sensitive issues such as the era's racial tensions.|
