A new trailer has just dropped for Mafia: Definitive Edition, giving us another look at the fantastic ground up remake that Hangar 13 have been working on. Check it out:
Mafia: Definitive Edition was recently nudged back a little from an August release to 25th September across PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. That’s now less than a month to go, so not long to go now.
For those who are still a little confused as to what Mafia: Definitive Edition actually is, it’s a top to bottom remake of the 2002 open-world GTA rival, Mafia. Although the story, characters, settings, and missions remain intact, Hangar 13 have rebuilt everything here for current generation hardware using modern development techniques. The IGN video includes side by side comparisons of the 2002 original and Mafia: Definitive Edition just to show off how much has changed.
Hangar 13 is a developer comprised of Mafia vets, their last game having been 2016’s Mafia III. All three games in the franchise – Mafia: Definitive Edition, Mafia II: Definitive Edition, and Mafia III: Definitive Edition will be able in one Mafia Trilogy bundle next month, bringing the three games together for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
The original Mafia was released in 2002 and followed the story of Thomas Angelo during the 1930s. Mafia II was released in 2010 and followed the story of Vito Scaletta during the 1940s and 50s. Then Mafia III was released in 2016 following the story of Lincoln Clay during the late 1960s. The events of each game bleed into the other detailing an overarching plot of Mafia families going to war and deals being made.
