The first Mafia has been completely remade from the ground-up. The complete remake includes a new game engine, updated script, new cutscenes, added gameplay sequences, and more. However, Mafia 1 won’t be available to play until August 28, 2020. Meanwhile, Mafia 2: Definitive Edition is available today as part of the trilogy and received an Ultra HD remaster.

Mafia 2 tells a different mafia story, this time in the fictional Empire Bay, New York post-World War 2. Veteran Vito Scaletta has to join the local family to help pay off his father’s debts. Meanwhile, Mafia 3: Definitive Edition follows Vietnam War veteran Lincoln Clay who sets out to start his own family to take revenge on the Italian Mafia that killed his loved ones. Both Mafia 2 and Mafia 3: Definitive Edition is available today and includes all their post-launch DLC. Mafia: Trilogy bundles all three Definitive Edition Mafia games, but each game will also be sold separately if you’re only looking to pick up one of the Mafia titles. Furthermore, players who already own Mafia 2 on Steam or Mafia 3 on PS4, Xbox One, and Steam will be upgraded to the Definitive Edition for free upon launch. The Mafia: Trilogy will also be available on the Epic Games Store at a later time.
