After showing off an extended look at gameplay back in July, 2K has just released an even longer gameplay showcase of Mafia: Definitive Edition. The over 17-minute long hands-on of the game, which features content creator GhostRobo, shows off more of the game’s combat, as well as rebuilt open world. The hands-on preview also features an interview with Hangar 13 President and CCO Haden Blackman.

This extended hand-on of Mafia: Definitive Edition should excite Mafia fans as it seems that Hangar 13 has made an excellent job in remaking the game from the ground-up. Not only does the combat look much improved, the graphics of the game also looks quite good, especially during the driving and explorations segments.

Not familiar with the game? Mafia: Definitive Edition is a remake of the first Mafia game released back in 2002 for the PS2, Xbox, and PC. The game’s story is described by 2K 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 
  • Mafia II: Definitive Edition – an ultra HD remaster of Mafia 2;
  • Mafia III: Definitive Editiona re-release of Mafia 3.
