2K Games has officially announced that the Mafia Remake, Mafia: Definitive Edition, will release on August 28th. Mafia: Definitive Edition will be a full remake of the first Mafia in the Mafia 3 Engine. Moreover, the publisher has released an official teaser trailer that you can find below.
In other news, 2K Games will release today both Mafia 2: Definitive Edition and Mafia 3: Definitive Edition.
Mafia II: Definitive Edition is a remaster of the second Mafia game, featuring better character models and new lighting effects. This remaster will also have better textures and new post-processing effects. Furthermore, the classic Mafia 2 game is no longer available for purchase.
On the other hand, Mafia III: Definitive Edition is the original game with all of its DLCs. Unfortunately, this new version of Mafia 3 does not pack any visual/graphical improvements. I also don’t expect any performance improvements. After all, 2K Games is offering this Definitive Edition via the original Steam store page of Mafia 3.
Mafia II: Definitive Edition will be granted to all Steam owners of the original game at no additional cost. Moreover, existing Mafia III owners will be upgraded to the Definitive Edition.
In short, the only game that will be worth your money is Mafia Remake.
Lastly, you will be able to purchase this Mafia Remake as a standalone game.
Enjoy the trailer and stay tuned for more!
