Teased last week, 2K and Hangar13 has lifted the lid on Mafia: Trilogy. A special collection of the three Mafia titles, Mafia: Trilogy can also be purchased separately. The oldest game, Mafia, has undergone a ground up remake for current consoles and PCs and includes all-new content. It is, by far, the game that has undergone the most change.
Mafia II Definitive Edition is largely unchanged from its original release, aside from visual fidelity. Remastered in 4K for the first time and available for the first time on current-gen consoles, Mafia II Definitive Edition also includes all three campaign DLCs and all clothing and vehicle packs.
Finally, Mafia III Definitive Edition is the same game that was released in 2016 and includes all additional content released for the game.
Mafia was released in 2002 for PC, PS2 and Xbox. Developed by Illusion Sofworks (later renamed 2K Czech), Mafia tells the story of Tommy Angelo in Lost Heaven in the 1930s. Mafia Definitive Edition is a complete remake of this game and includes;
- a new game engine
- expanded story
- new and refined modern gameplay features
- re-recorded orchestral score
By owning Mafia Defintive Edition, players will gain access to Tommy’s Suit and Cab in both Mafia II and Mafia III.
Mafia Definitive Edition will be available from August 28, 2020.
Mafia II was originally released in 2010 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 and tells the story of Vito Scaletta as he operates in Empire Bay. This Definitive Edition features a 4K upscale remaster to the original rather than a full-on remake.
