If your ideal gaming experience includes antiheroes getting revenge against the criminal underworld, then you’ve probably played Mafia. While you were taking down the mobsters and overrunning their establishments, did you spot and collect the in-game vintage Playboy covers? Assuming you’re into beautiful women, the answer is yes, and they’re in your library now.
Out this October, Mafia III is set in the fictional city of New Bordeaux in 1968. Even gangsters and criminals read Playboy, so it only makes sense that a few issues from that year will be lying around—50, to be exact. (Whether the hoods were reading Playboy for the articles or the women remains unclear.) We’re so hyped about the upcoming release that we created a piece of collectible art for the Mafia III Collector’s Edition. Inspired by the game, the print features one of our Playmates and will give you a sneak peek at the special faux cover of Playboy’s October issue.
That’s just one example of all the cool shit available in the Collector’s Edition. Here’s a look at what you’ll be unboxing.
EXCLUSIVE VINYL SOUNDTRACK & SCORE COLLECTION
The 1960s brought us a lot of classic songs that fit into the Mafia III backdrop of civil unrest. From Jimi Hendrix’s searing rendition of “All Along the Watchtower” to the Animals’ cover of “House of the Rising Sun,” the first disc features just a small sampling of the massive in-game soundtrack of 100+ era-defining songs.
The second disc features the original Mafia III score created by gaming audio greats Jesse Harlin and Jim Bonney. With a little bit of rhythm and a little bit of blues, the sounds will immerse you in New Bordeaux’s fictional culture of 1960s organized crime.
THE ART OF MAFIA III COLLECTIBLE ART BOOK
Ever wonder what inspires fictional worlds in gaming? The Mafia III Collector’s Edition contains a lavish, image-heavy book that explores the creation of 1968 New Bordeaux.
LINCOLN CLAY REPLICA DOG TAGS
You’ll be able to get your hands on these US Military-issued replica dog tags seen around the neck of combat vet and Mafia III protagonist Lincoln Clay.
FAUX LEATHER ESTABLISHMENT DRINK COASTERS
Like a true gangster, you should have a drink in your hand while you delve into the criminal underworld. Check out the customized coasters from the series’ in-game establishments Paradiso Casino and Sammy’s.
COLLECTIBLE ART & EXCLUSIVE PLAYBOY PRINT
One of the exclusive prints in the Collector’s Edition is a beauty that you will definitely want to frame.
The custom Playboy print features 2016 Playmate of the Year Eugena Washington as an era-inspired associate of Lincoln Clay’s criminal organization who helps him mete out revenge. Once you pick your jaw up off the floor, you’ll notice something besides Eugena’s incredible sexiness: a ton of Easter Eggs hidden within the Exclusive Playboy Collectible Print. We’ll share a few of them now—Clay’s dog tags and army jacket, a glass from Sammy’s and, of course, a Playboy magazine—but it’s on you to find the rest.
Mafia III releases on October 7 2016. You can preorder the game and Mafia III Collector’s Edition here.
