In case you’re unfamiliar, Mafia: Definitive Edition is a ground-up remake of the first Mafia title which released in 2002 for PS2, Xbox, and PC. The Definitive Edition is re-built in a new engine, and features an updated script, added gameplay sequences, and new cutscenes. The game’s story is described as:
“After a run-in with the mob, cab driver Tommy Angelo is thrust into a deadly underworld. Initially uneasy about falling in with the Salieri crime family, Tommy soon finds that some rewards are too big to pass up.”
Mafia: Definitive Edition is part of 2K and Hangar 13’s larger Mafia Trilogy initiative. The trilogy consists of the following titles:
- Mafia: Definitive Edition – The built-from-the-ground-up remake of the beloved classic;
- Mafia II: Definitive Edition – The ultra HD remaster of the fan favorite;
- Mafia III: Definitive Edition – The re-introduction of the award-winning narrative masterpiece.
Mafia: Definitive Edition will release on August 28, 2020 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC, both as a standalone purchase and as part of the Mafia: Trilogy. Mafia 2 and Mafia 3’s Definitive Editions are now available as standalone purchases; players who buy the Mafia: Trilogy package prior to August 28 will also get access to Mafia 2 and 3 immediately.
