It’s good news for Mafia fans, as the series is getting a much-requested revamp thanks to 2K Games and, best of all, two of the beloved titles are available from today!
It’s been announced that Definitive Editions for each of the three Mafia games are coming, with Mafia 2: Definitive Edition and Mafia 3: Definitive Edition surprise-launching today, May 19th.
The Definitive Editions for Mafia 2 and Mafia 3 will “feature all original bonus add-on content, plus completely remastered 4K compatible visuals for Mafia II.”
Meanwhile, the original Mafia will be getting the full AAA treatment, receiving a complete remake from the ground up. Entitled the Mafia: Definitive Edition, this new release will be dropping August 28.
According to 2K: “Mafia: Definitive Edition is a comprehensive, built-from-the-ground-up remake of the original Mafia, complete with an updated script filled with rich new dialogue, expanded backstories, and additional cutscenes; all-new gameplay sequences and features; the same stellar game engine that powered Mafia III’s best-in-class cinematics; and other enhancements. It’s the Mafia you remember, only much more.”
Each of the three games will be available to purchase separately, or you can pick them up together in the Mafia: Trilogy, which will also be available from August 28.
2K Games has also confirmed that if you own the original games, you can upgrade to the Definitive Editions for free! The press release reads as follows:
“Upon release, Mafia II: Definitive Edition will be automatically granted to all existing owners of Mafia II on Steam at no additional cost. All existing Mafia III owners on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam will be upgraded to Mafia III: Definitive Edition at no additional cost once the Definitive Edition has launched. Customers who own a combination of titles will receive special discounted upgrade offers to complete their trilogy.”
Time to get hype!
