Mafia: Definitive Edition is out today – a remake of Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven. The original was released in 2002, and the new Mafia has undergone several changes. Still, it has retained its atmosphere, which fans of the series of games and newcomers alike can plunge into.
“The developers of Hangar 13 are, without a doubt, some of the most talented storytellers in the industry,” said David Ismailer, President of 2K. “Having the opportunity to present this acclaimed classic to a new generation of players almost 20 years after its original release is a privilege. We are excited by the newbies and die-hard fans who are going to experience this careful, imaginative, and gigantic revitalization of Tommy Angelo’s journey.”
Available through pre-order or at launch through major retailers, the Day One Chicago Outfit Pack bonus will present players with the coveted Smith V12 Limousine, a golden semi-automatic pistol, and a stylish white suit, set essential reserved for the biggest names in the Mafia.
Developed by Hangar 13 (Mafia III) and published by 2K Games, Mafia: Definitive Edition not only recreates from scratch the engaging universe of the game that started the acclaimed franchise with the most beautiful look that the current generation provides but also goes beyond, bringing new scenes, dialogues, missions even richer in details and new gameplay sequences.
Fruit of Hangar 13’s passion for the Mafia trilogy, the new game – which in its development team has several key members responsible for the first title of the franchise developed in 2002 – Mafia: Definitive Edition is a historic dive in the United States of the decade of 30.
Located in the fictional city of Lost Heaven, the game accompanies the reluctant protagonist Thomas Angelo, or Tommy, for the closest, a taxi driver who, by a stroke of fate, finds himself on the front line between the dangerous power struggle between the Salieri families and Morello.
In addition to reintroducing the remarkable first chapter of the trilogy, Mafia: Definitive Edition also closes with a flourish the celebrations of the franchise’s eighteenth year. This year has already received both Mafia II: Definitive Edition and Mafia III: Definitive Edition, and which also is part of the Mafia: Trilogy collection.
