The latest entry in the long-running open-world crime series Mafia 3 is coming to the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. In the run up to this, developer Hangar 13 has announced what kind of a PC you’d need to get the best out of it.

It seems to be on the higher side, particularly from a CPU standpoint. No surprise given how good the game has appeared visually with each and every showing. In our Gamescom preview we noted that this was not all. The game also makes great use of licensed music such as The Rolling Stones' Paint it Black; and the dialogue feels cohesive and real. Areas like graveyards littered with junkies, and jazz clubs that are fronts for mob activity, further accentuate the seedy New Orleans underbelly to the point where you'd think you stepped into a crime film instead of a video game.
Mafia 3 follows the exploits of Lincoln Clay building a new family after his mob was betrayed and hunted down by the Italian Mafia in New Bordeaux. Considering employees at Hangar 13 have worked on the likes of Star Wars: The Force Unleased and The Force Unleashed 2, it’s likely that Mafia 3 will have a strong narrative. Nonetheless, we’ll only know for sure when the game is out on October 7.
