Mafia: Definitive Edition shows off its updated gunfights in a new gameplay video

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 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.

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…

2K announce an announcement for next week that’s definitely a Mafia remake

Don't ya love a teaser trailer for an announcement that's also a trailer for a game that's coming out in three months? Classic. 2K have put up a new Mafia trailer today to announce that they'll make a real announcement next week. At least part of the reveal looks to be a remake of the original gangster 'em up Mafia game, according to a Microsoft…

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…

Mafia returns to sale after vanishing for five years

After five years of not being sold for download anywhere (and long being out-of-print on disc), the first Mafia has returned to sale. GOG this week dredged the digital bay, hauled the crime 'em up out, and chipped off its concrete boots to re-release it DRM-free. This version has an edited soundtrack with the licensed music removed, mind. Presumably music licenses expiring is what got…

Mafia 3 Trailer Showcases The Lovely New Bordeaux

The other day I sat down to clear out an old bills basket and realised The Godfather trilogy was on the telly. "I'll stick it on in the background," I naively thought to myself and, needless to say, I didn't get as much done as I'd first planned. Until part 3. Because no matter how much I want to like it, it's garbage compared to…

Mafia 3’s Move To Sixties New Orleans Is Risky But Potentially Rewarding

The Mafia 3 [official site] presentation at Gamescom felt very much like an attempt to hammer home several important changes to the series rather than an accurate representation of the minute-by-minute experience of playing. Given that this was the first public showing of the game, which probably won't see release until the second half of 2016, that's to be expected. The vertical slice shown had…

Join The Family: Mafia Mod Adds Multiplayer

Aye, Mafia III was announced last week, but what good does that do you now? The game's not even due until 2016. However, you can today download and play a near-final version of Lost Heaven MP [official site], a mod adding multiplayer to the first Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven.You and your pals could this very day be zipping around Lost Heaven, chasing each…

Mafia 3’s Announcement Trailer Will Arrive August 5th

Last month a NeoGAF poster found that publisher 2K Games had pointed four domains at their own server: mafia3thegame.com, mafiaiiithegame.com, mafiathree.com, and mafiathreethegame.com. It was a baffling mystery that set alight the minds' of the world's greatest detectives and the games press. The clues were right in front of us all but what did they mean? Now we've discovered a second sign (via the Mafia…

Come In: Kingdom Come Will Be ‘Very Open’ To Modding

Kingdom Come: Deliverance didn't quite win me over during a recent demo, but it certainly got me galloping toward its corner. Evidently, I'm not the only one, given that it's already made enough money to buy its own kingdom. It's preposterous with a capital Osterous, and I doubt it'll be slowing down any time soon. But maybe you're still on the fence. And that's fine.…

It Didn’t Dragon: Kingdom Come: Deliverance Funded

Nathan's excitement over Kingdom Come: Deliverance, a realistic open-world medieval RPG, has translated to Kickstarter success. The project is now funded, defeating the dragon (£300,000 funding target) with a swinging blow after only three days. With 27 days still remaining, they might be able to buy their own castle.

Mega-Impressions – Kingdom Come: Deliverance

Kingdom Come: Deliverance has kind of a silly name, but it's one heck of an intriguing prospect. The hyper-detailed historical RPG heralds from a small army of developers who once steered the creation of Mafia and Arma, among many others. Despite coming from a relatively small team by triple-A standards, the game's production values are through the roof, and the dev team really wants it all:…

Resisting The Obvious Quotes: Mafia Devs Semi-Shut Down

They might call it a "restructuring", but whatever word one applies to it, it's bad news for a venerable studio with a rich heritage. In this partial death, let them once again assume their true mantle. 2K Czech were and always shall be Illusion Softworks, creators of Hidden & Dangerous, Mafia and not enough else. Subsumed into the 2K mass in 2007 and renamed in…

The Very Important List Of PC Games, Part 2/5

Yesterday, as you may have noted, Dr Rossignol began our lecture series on the most important PC games of all time. Much like The Christmas Lectures, The Reith Lectures, and the TED Lectures, this definitive series has been a part of our institution as long as the Earth has borne stones. In this second part Professor John Walker explains the varying importanceness of a second…
