Mafia: Definitive Edition is due to release in two months’ time. The developer Hangar 13 is currently working on the game and shares updates regularly with the gaming community. Conversely, their last update contains a gameplay trailer that clocks around 15 minutes. 2K, the owner of the game’s rights, shared this recent footage with IGN.
According to 2K, the remake is a comprehensive upgrade to the previous game. Therefore, the remake edition won’t be completely loyal to its original predecessor, as the trailer signifies. We are safe to assume, as the technological aspects of the game will receive significant upgrades, the storyline won’t be free of this change. On the other hand, the other elements of the remastered trilogy, Mafia II and III, have received mere facelifts. Consequently, the player base is a bit disappointed and would expect more from Hangar 13.
The studio used Mafia III’s engine to develop the Definitive Edition. Furthermore, it will include expanded backstories and additional cutscenes. The studio president Haden Blackman, recently shared some details with IGN. Haden stated, they will be loyal to the 20-year-old game. Yet, they will be working hard to cover what it missed, including plot holes and storylines that left without an end. Furthermore, Tommy’s family-driven motives will be fortified. For example, Tommy’s wife Sarah will have longer screen time.
Mafia: Definitive Edition will arrive for PS4, Xbox One and Epic Games Store on 25th September.
