We’ve seen numerous leaks about the Mafia trilogy over the past few days and weeks. These include certifications from the rating boards of various countries, even gameplay leaks. Now, 2K Games has officially pulled the curtains aside on these games.
Mafia Trilogy Brings With It A Remake Of The First Mafia Game
The biggest and most interesting part of this release is that of the Mafia Definitive Edition. This game originally came out all the way back in 2002. However, later this year, players will be able to get their hands on a full-on remake.
This remake of the first Mafia game is going to use the same engine as the one that Hangar 13 used for Mafia III. The story of this game is still more or less the same as the original. Everything else about it is likely different, though. Hangar 13 themselves are quite excited about this part of the Mafia Trilogy specifically.
Mafia: Definitive Edition Is A Brand New Experience
Hangar 13’s President and CCO, Haden Blackman, is especially enthusiastic about this one, too. In a statement on the Mafia website, he had this to say:
“The original Mafia made such a lasting impact on how video games can tell serious stories, and we know how much the series fans still revere it. Nearly 20 years after the Mafia series started, we now have an amazing opportunity to introduce this beloved game to a new generation of players, and give longtime fans a chance to relive Tommy’s story with a stellar modern presentation and new story elements and gameplay features.”
Mafia Trilogy Will Feature Definitive Editions Of All Three Titles
Mafia II and Mafia III are also getting their own Definitive Editions. These two aren’t quite as impressive, though. Mafia II: Definitive Edition is simply a 4K update of the original game, which came out in 2010. Mafia III likely won’t get much of a visual update, either. The game came out in 2016 and still looks pretty solid.
What is great about all of these games is that, as part of the Mafia Trilogy, you get all the additional campaign missions, weapons, etc. in one, complete package. You can grab the entire Mafia Trilogy for $60. However, if you don’t want the whole collection, you can get Mafia II and III’s Definitive Editions for $30 each.
The first Mafia game’s Definitive Edition is a bit more expensive, at $40 on its own. That’s understandable since it’s a huge update. Mafia: Definitive Edition also doesn’t come out until August 28, 2020, with the Mafia Trilogy collection. Mafia II: Definitive Edition is already available to play, though.
All three of these titles are available on Ps4, Xbox One and PC.
