'Faster, Baby!' introduces a new story set in a new small town called Sinclair Parish, and adds a number of game enhancements, gear, and new vehicles.
Here's a brief rundown of 'Faster, Baby!' provided by publisher 2K:
There's a whole new part of town to drive through "“ and tear up: Sinclair Parish is a small rural township in the countryside with lots of opportunities to tear through turns, jump gaps and run from the law. Oh, sure, you'll have your fill of Hollywood-caliber car chases, enhanced with new "Faster, Baby!" additions like the ability to activate slow motion. It's a new way to carve tight corners and thread-the-needle between narrow gaps while evading pursuit.
"Faster, Baby!" gets straight to the action with high-octane driving and more car combat: With this new DLC release we're introducing new combat mechanics perfectly suited for causing destruction on-the-go. Namely, you'll now have access to proximity mines so you can lay out traps on the backroads or in enemy encampments. Also, take advantage of the ability to toss grenades from your car while enemies are in hot pursuit.
"¦and there's a great story as well! "Faster, Baby!" takes place alongside events in the main game. A civil rights leader is murdered while investigating local sheriff "Slim" Beaumont "“ and other activists are next on the list. As the story unfolds, you're unlocking new cars for tooling around New Bordeaux, new outfits and new gear for taking down Slim "“ as well as the Marcanos.
The demo for Mafia III includes the bank heist sequence, which is the opening act of the game. It's this sequence that give us a background into Lincoln's history with the mafia and sets up the events leading up to his desire for revenge. Should you purchase the full game after playing the demo, all your progress will carry over.
