Mafia: Definitive Edition: 15 Minutes Of Gameplay, But It Feels Familiar [VIDEO]

Thanks to IGN, we can now take a closer look at Hangar 13‘s work on the first Mafia.

Mafia II’s current-gen re-release has been terrible on consoles, and the third game’s complete re-release hasn’t exactly been complete in Europe (we wrote about both before), so after these events, we didn’t have much hope for the remake of the first Mafia… and even this small slither of hope is slowly going away.

If you played Mafia III, you will recognize it all: Hangar 13 has essentially taken the gameplay and the engine of that game and modified it to the location and story of the first instalment. And it might not be a better result than with the original, where the gameplay might have been intentionally a bit clunky: Tommy Angelo, the cab driver-turned-gangster wasn’t meant to be part of the Salieri crime family, so his aim wasn’t the best, plus he died fairly quickly from a round of Tommy gun bullets…

„Part one of the Mafia crime saga—1930s, Lost Heaven, Illinois. Re-made from the ground up with a new game engine, an updated script, new cutscenes, additional gameplay sequences, and more, you’ll rise through the ranks of the Italian Mafia during the Prohibition era of organized crime. After a run-in with the mob, cab driver Tommy Angelo is thrust into a deadly underworld. Initially uneasy about falling in with the Salieri crime family, Tommy soon finds that some rewards are too big to pass up.

Remade Classic – Faithfully recreated from the ground up, with a new game engine, expanded story, new and refined modern gameplay features, re-recorded orchestral score, and more. This is the Mafia you remember, only much more. Play a Mob Movie – Live the life of a Prohibition-era gangster and rise through the ranks of the Mafia in a cinematic experience, with new story elements like a revised script, brand new cutscenes, and re-recorded voice acting. Lost Heaven, Illinois – Recreated 1930s cityscape filled with interwar architecture, cars, and culture to see, hear, and interact with,” 2K’s (=Take-Two’s) overview says. The police might still be better to be paid off if you drive too fast (better than a five-minute chase), but the cutscenes might still be mostly FMV to mask loading.

Mafia: Definitive Edition won’t come in late August but on September 25 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC (Steam, Epic Games Store), and Google Stadia, even though Strauss Zelnick, the CEO of Take-Two previously said he is disappointed in that platform…
