How To Get Mafia 2 And Mafia 3 Definitive Editions For Free If You Own The Originals

2K Games is giving free Definitive Edition upgrades to owners of Mafia 2 on Steam and Mafia 3 on all platforms.


2K games has confirmed Mafia: Definitive Edition, a full remake of the 2002 action-adventure for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, will release August 28. It'll come packaged with the Mafia: Trilogy and as a standalone title that's available to pre-order now. Fans of the Mafia series are also getting some free content in the form of Definitive Edition upgrades for Mafia II and Mafia III. If you own Mafia II on Steam, you can update the 10-year-old title to experience the adventure in high definition for free. Mafia III's upgrade is free on all platforms (PS4, Xbox One, and PC) and grants access to all of the post-launch DLC. In fact, the game will automatically update to the Definitive Edition if you have the original installed on your console already, and you can claim the extra content packs in the various digital stores, as well.

The free upgrades were announced alongside the first official details on Mafia: Definitive Edition. "Note that if you already own Mafia II on Steam, you will be automatically granted Mafia II: Definitive Edition at no additional cost. Furthermore, if you already own Mafia III on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or Steam, you will be upgraded to Mafia III: Definitive Edition at no additional cost," 2K wrote in a blog post.

Mafia II's free upgrade unlocks three story expansions--The Betrayal of Jimmy, Jimmy's Vendetta, and Joe's Adventure--as well as four gear packs. Though the free upgrade is only available on PC via Steam, Mafia II: Definitive Edition is also available as a separate purchase for $30 on all platforms.

Mafia III's Definitive Edition upgrade comes with all three story DLCS--Faster, Baby!, Stones Unturned, and Sign of the Times--and two gear packs. Those who already own physical or digital editions of Mafia III will simply have to download the new update to get the DLC. Even if you buy a physical edition of Mafia III in the future, you'll always be able to snag all of the DLC for free.
