It's official! Teased a week ago by 2K and then inadvertently leaked by an Xbox Store listing hours later, the Mafia: Trilogy collection is set to include a built from the ground-up Resident Evil 2-style remake of 2002's Mafia. Called Mafia: Definitive Edition it's being recreated in the impressive Mafia III engine and will include an expanded script, new and reworked gameplay and many other enhancements.
It's due for release on August 28 as a standalone title or as part of the Mafia: Trilogy - developed by 2K studio Hangar 13. And yeah, the results are stunning.
Here are the full details - including a teaser trailer.
Re-made from the ground up with a new game engine, an updated script, new cutscenes, additional gameplay sequences, and more, you’ll rise through the ranks of the Italian Mafia during the Prohibition era of organized crime. 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.
Re-Made Classic: Faithfully recreated from the ground up, with a new game engine, expanded story, new and refined modern gameplay features, re-recorded orchestral score, and more. This is the Mafia you remember, only much more.
Play a Mob Movie: Live the life of a Prohibition-era gangster and rise through the ranks of the Mafia in a cinematic experience, with new story elements like a revised script, brand new cutscenes, and re-recorded voice acting.
Lost Heaven, IL: Recreated 1930s cityscape filled with interwar architecture, cars, and culture to see, hear, and interact with.
Own Mafia: Definitive Edition to unlock Tommy’s Suit and Cab in both Mafia II and Mafia III Definitive Editions.
Which brings us to the rest of the Mafia: Trilogy - available now with both Mafia II: Definitive Edition and Mafia III: Definitive Edition playable on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Of the two, Mafia II has been given a HD remaster (not a full remake like the original) bringing it up to par with the 4K capabilities of current-gen hardware. Good news on this front is that owners of Mafia II on PC and Mafia III on PS4, Xbox One, and PC will be automatically updated to the Definitive Editions for both. Where you get all DLC and post-launch content in addition to bonus cosmetics across all three games if you own the complete Mafia saga.
