Before Mafia: Definitive Edition busts an old-timey cap in our bottoms later this month, we’re being treated to a short video series exploring the various aspects of the game, with the first video “World of Lost Heaven” giving us a rundown on the city of Lost Heaven.
The city, along with everything inside it, has been completely remade for the current-gen consoles and modern PCs, and it’s evident from the video that the developers have poured a lot of hard work into their project. Everything seems familiar but new. Old and weathered, but new and shiny.
The first video in the series is available to watch up above, and the second video will be coming on September 10th. The second part of this mini-series will delve into the overhauled combat and driving mechanics. Then, on September 17th we’ll get another video with a look at some of the missions before the fourth and final video on September 23rd focusing on the game’s stunning music, which in spite of The Rona, was still put together by a crack team of musicians.
Mafia: Definitive Edition – a comprehensive, built-from-the-ground-up remake of the original Mafia – launches September 25. The remake features an updated script filled with rich new dialogue, expanded backstories, and additional cutscenes. Players will also find all-new gameplay sequences and features, best-in-class cinematics, a re-recorded orchestral score, and other enhancements. It’s the Mafia players remember, only much more.
Mafia: Definitive Edition is part of the Mafia: Trilogy, which includes:
- Mafia: Definitive Edition – The built-from-the-ground-up remake of the beloved classic;
- Mafia II: Definitive Edition – The ultra HD remaster of the fan favorite;
- Mafia III: Definitive Edition – The re-introduction of the award-winning narrative masterpiece.
Players who purchase Mafia: Trilogy digitally will be able to access Mafia II: Definitive Edition and Mafia III: Definitive Edition immediately. They’ll also be able to download Mafia: Definitive Edition as soon as it becomes available on September 25. Mafia: Definitive Edition, Mafia II: Definitive Edition, and Mafia III: Definition Edition are available for purchase individually as well.
