The leaks were not lying: Take-Two wants to get cash off Mafia.
2K (Take-Two) and Hangar 13 officially announced Mafia: Trilogy, containing three games (Mafia: Definitive Edition, Mafia II: Definitive Edition, Mafia III: Definitive Edition). The second and the third games’ new version is already available on PlayStation Store, Microsoft Store and Steam for 30 dollars/euro, and the Epic Games Store version will come at a later date. Mafia III: Definitive Edition is a re-release of the original game (which was available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC), complete with all DLC, while Mafia II: Definitive Edition is a remaster of the original game that was launched on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. If you want to get all three games, Mafia: Trilogy already offers this option digitally for 60 dollars/euro, although you have to wait for the first game’s remake, as that comes later. Mafia: Trilogy will also get a physical version.
We’ll hear more about Mafia: Definitive Edition on June 6 in the PC Gaming Show. If you pre-order this game, you’ll get The Chicago Outfit DLC, including The Don exclusive player outfit, the Smith V12 Limousine exclusive vehicle, and the Gold Semi-Automatic exclusive weapon skin. If you sign up for a 2K Account, you also get additional items in each game (Mafia: Definitive Edition: Black Cats Motorcycle Pack, Mafia II: Definitive Edition – Made Man Pack, Mafia III: Definitive Edition – Classico Three-Piece Suit és IL Duca Revolver).
„The original Mafia made such a lasting impact on how video games can tell serious stories, and we know how much the series’ fans still revere it. Nearly 20 years after the Mafia series started, we now have an amazing opportunity to introduce this beloved game to a new generation of players and give longtime fans a chance to relive Tommy’s story with a stellar modern presentation, as well as new story elements and gameplay features,” said Hangar 13 president and chief corporate officer Haden Blackman in a press release.
Mafia: Definitive Edition will launch on August 28 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC (Steam, Epic Games Store), and Google Stadia, for 40 dollars/euro. It will also get a physical edition on consoles.
We do have to add that Mafia II could have been purchased for less than five dollars until now (plus its Definitive Edition is looks essentially the same as the original), plus Mafia III was also around 10-15 dollars if you looked around in the right places. Its Definitive Edition somehow forgot to make the Faster Baby! DLC to be free in Europe, as we still have to pay 15 dollars for that.
