First Mafia Definitive Edition Patch adds Custom HUD Options & Noir Mode

Hangar 13 has released the first patch for Mafia Definitive Edition. This patch adds custom HUD options, a Noir Mode, and new Free Ride content. Furthermore, it addresses some issues that players have reported these past couple of weeks.

Going into more details, players can use new options to customize the in-game HUD. Players can switch the in-world main objective marker on/off, or switch navigation features like turn-by-turn instructions and the mini-map GPS on/off.

On the other hand, the Noir Mode allows you to enjoy the game with a vintage black-and-white look. Noir Mode can be toggled on and off via the game options screen.

As always, Steam will download this patch the next time you launch its client. Below you can also find its complete changelog. You can also find our PC Performance Analysis here.

Mafia Definitive Edition October 7th Update Release Notes

New Features
  • Custom HUD Options
    Use these new options to customize the in-game HUD if, for example, you want to make your explorations of Lost Heaven feel less guided or take a particularly pleasing screenshot:
    – Switch the in-world main objective marker on/off.
    – Switch mini-map enemy markers on/off on all difficulty settings. (Previously enemy markers were always on outside of Classic Mode.)
    – Switch navigation features like turn-by-turn instructions and the mini-map GPS on/off.
    – Enable the new Minimal HUD mode to hide HUD elements including the mini-map, the speedometer, and objective text while playing.
  • Noir Mode
    Enable Noir Mode to enjoy Mafia: Definitive Edition’s gameplay and cinematics with a vintage black-and-white look. Noir Mode can be toggled on and off via the game options screen.
  • Free Ride Content
    Now that you’re off to the races and enjoying Free Ride mode, depending on which vehicle you’re driving and where you’re driving it, you might find one of a couple new gameplay features that we’ve added to the mode. We’ll leave the specifics for you to discover and hope you fare well in Lost Heaven.
Bug Fixes
  • Addressed a reported issue that sometimes prevented the correct vehicles from unlocking in the player garage upon completion of the optional Lucas Bertone missions. Players who have completed these missions should find the correct vehicles in their garage the next time they start the game.
  • Also addressed a reported concern that a special assassination animation sometimes wasn’t triggering correctly during the mission “The Saint and The Sinner.”
  • Addressed a reported concern that certain cinematics would occasionally show a black screen.
