Mafia 3 Character Customization

In Mafia 3, you play as Lincoln Clay, a character with a defined look and personality. Even though he is a person, not just an avatar, the game will let you change his appearance, so you can make him more unique.

But it’s not as straightforward as that. The whole thing is a bit complicated, and changing Lincoln’s look won’t be available from the start. Read on to find out everything we know about Mafia 3 Character Customization.

How to change Lincoln’s appearance

You can’t. At least when it comes to his facial features. Lincoln’s face has a set look that cannot be changed. His haircut and outfit will change several times during the story, but you won’t be able to influence those changes.

How to change character outfits

This feature wasn’t planned, so it won’t be present at launch. There will be several points in the game when Lincoln changes his clothes, but you won’t have a say in what he wears. For a while, you’ll be stuck with his army green jacket, or whatever the devs felt was appropriate.

In the introduction alone, he switches from a guard uniform during the heist, to a t-shirt in most of the scenes between that and the breaking point, a white, sleeveless shirt on the carnival, and finally, his signature green army jacket.

You can buy armor from the Arms dealer (bullet proof vests), but it seems they don’t influence the appearance.

However, since fans have been pretty vocal about character customization, 2K have announced they’ll be adding the option post-launch. They’re going to release a free DLC pack with different outfits and costumes, as well as the ability to switch them at will. In short – you’ll have to wait if you want Lincoln to wear a suit and tie.

There’s no word on a release date yet, but it’s probably going to happen during the first month. Most importantly, it’s going to be free.
