New Bordeaux expands with the addition of Sinclair Parish, a town west of the Bayou where Lincoln teams up with a new character, Roxy Laveau, to take down the corrupt and powerful Sheriff “Slim” Beaumont. New driving and combat mechanics add to Lincoln’s repertoire as he fights for control of Sinclair Parish, with new weapons for his arsenal and vehicles for his fleet.
