Mafia: Definitive Edition remake is out now

For eighteen years, I've been unable to escape a stubborn earworm: the smooth jazz of Django Reinhardt's Cavalerie, from the car radio in Mafia. I had thought that I might be able to shake it loose by returning to the city of Lost Heaven in Mafia: Definitive Edition, the remake which launched this morning, but I've now read that song didn't make it in. If…

The Mafia: Definitive Edition remake is coming in September, but you can take a look at some of the remade missions ahead of time in a new video. Lost Heaven looks much shinier, of course, and its characters have gotten a glowup, but there have been some updates to how it plays as well, which Hangar 13 explain.

Mafia: Definitive Edition’s remastered crime spree has been delayed

Turns out, not even make-believe crime is safe from the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Today, the mob bosses at Hangar 13 announced that Mafia: Definitive Edition, a re-jigged rerelease of the 2002 crime 'em up, will no longer hit its planned August launch. Instead, they're pushing their old fashioned crime romp into September, with a proper peek at Mafia's new look set to air later this…

Mafia: Definitive Edition is more than just a lick of paint

Mafia: Definitive Edition looks a bit nice. The remake of the 2002 open world crime 'em up was announced with an extremely brief trailer a few weeks ago, but it was unclear exactly how remade it would be. A new trailer today makes clear that the answer is: a lot. It's a ground-up recreation, and the screenshot above gives a sense of the graphical upgrade.

Feature: Maul In The Family

Might it already be too late to remake 2002’s Mafia?

It was with raised eyebrows that I met the news of 2K's plans to re-release all three Mafia games. With the second and third already out, but neither game worth playing at all, it is the first that creates intrigue. This long-loved, but very long-in-the-tooth 2002 mob-me-do, seems like such a fascinating prospect to see given an overhaul. But might eighteen years since its release…

Mafia: Definitive Edition remake officially announced for August

A real pretty remake of Mafia is coming on August 28, 2K announced today. After accidentally blowing the surprise last week, they've now made Mafia: Definitive Edition official. As well as remaking the 2002 wiseguy 'em up, they've given the less-good 2010 sequel Mafia II a less-dramatic remastering, which is due to launch today as a free update. And Mafia III is getting its DLC…

Mafia teases a return after two years of criminal radio silence

Mafia is back online. Two years after its last post, longer still since the last piece of Mafia III DLC came and went, the open-world crime 'em up's Twitter account has poked the hornet's nest by tweeting out one word earlier today. Are they teasing a sequel? Lining up for a remaster? Or is this just a quiet love of familial bonds from an online…
