It’s official: All three Mafia games are receiving definitive editions. Publisher 2K Games confirmed the details today after revealing the project last week. However, the Mafia Trilogy isn’t quite as straightforward as other rereleases. All three of the games are getting different degrees of attention for their updates, so we’re breaking down all of the major points. If you want to know what to expect (and when), then this list is for you.
What They Are
- You can see screens and trailers for all three definitive editions here.
- Mafia: Definitive Edition is remake of the 2002 original. It is being rebuilt from the ground up, and will have new dialogue, cutscenes, and features.
- Mafia II: Definitive Edition is a remastered version of the 2010 original. In addition to new HD visuals, it also has all of the post-release add-ons.
- Mafia III: Definitive Edition includes all of the DLC and bonus content for the 2016 original, but has not otherwise been significantly changed.
- Each game unlocks unique items in the other two. You can also get additional exclusive items by pre-ordering Mafia: Definitive Edition or buying the Mafia Trilogy early.
When They Release
- Mafia II and Mafia III definitive editions are available now digitally. You can get them on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
- If you buy the bundled Mafia Trilogy digitally, you can access Mafia II and III now, and will gain access to Mafia: Definitive Edition when it releases.
- Mafia: Definitive Edition releases on August 28, 2020. At that time, a physical version including all three games will also be available.
What They Cost
- Buying all three games together as the Mafia Trilogy costs $60. Otherwise, Mafia: Definitive Edition is $40, and Mafia II and III are $30 each.
- If you own Mafia II on Steam, you will be automatically granted Mafia II: Definitive Edition at no cost.
- If you own Mafia III on PS4, Xbox, or Steam, it will automatically upgrade to Mafia III: Definitive Edition at no cost.
- If you already own a combination of Mafia titles, you can get a special upgrade offer to complete your trilogy at a discount.
