Mafia III, the next entry in the popular Mafia video game series, is coming to Mac, Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on October 7th. Android, however, is missing from that list. A mobile spin-off, titled Mafia III: Rivals, is arriving on Android (and iOS) on the same date.

Rivals shares the same basic concept as the existing Mafia titles, with the player attempting to rise through the ranks of the criminal underworld. As opposed to the open-world nature of Mafia III, Rivals is much closer to your average mobile RPG. You can recruit and level up your crime bosses, fight other players, and equip weapons in your bid for control over New Bordeaux (the fictional city in Mafia III).

Unfortunately, no gameplay videos have been released of the game, so details beyond that are scarce. The game is currently available for pre-registration on the Play Store.
