Mafia: Definitive Edition Preorder Details: Release Date, Trilogy Details, And More
2K Games is injecting new life in the Mafia series by remaking original game and offering Definitive Editions of the sequels for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
The Mafia series is getting multiple re-releases and a remake this year, and you can get two of them now. The Mafia: Trilogy includes a stunning remake of the original 2002 game, a new update to Mafia II, and a re-release of Mafia III. Mafia: Trilogy is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, but before you buy, you should know which content you can play right away. We have all of the Mafia Trilogy buying details you need.
Mafia: Trilogy comes with Definitive Editions of all three games. Mafia is a full remake, 2010's Mafia II is remastered in 4K, and 2016's Mafia III comes with all of the post-launch DLC. If you purchase the trilogy, you'll gain access to the latter two immediately and Mafia: Definitive Edition when it releases September 25. You don't have to play the series in order, so you'll be able to work your way through Mafia II and Mafia III ahead of the release of Mafia: Definitive Edition.
For those who already own Mafia II on Steam, you can upgrade to the Definitive Edition right now free of charge. If you own Mafia III on PS4, Xbox One, or Steam, you'll be upgraded to the Definitive Edition immediately as well. Those who have Mafia II and/or Mafia III can get the trilogy at a reduced price (granting access to Mafia: Definitive Edition).
Alternatively, if you only care about the lavish remake of the first Mafia game, you can pre-order it now for $40. Mafia II: Definitive Edition is also available separately for $30, and Mafia III: Definitive Edition can be found for $30 or less.
Each Mafia game follows a different protagonist who works their way up the ranks of a crime organization. The original Mafia takes place during the 1930s at the height of prohibition and stars Tommy Angelo. Mafia II jumps forward to the 1940s and 1950s but retains the Italian mob theme. Mafia III moves to the 1960s in a setting inspired by the American South, specifically New Orleans.
Mafia: Trilogy and Mafia: Definitive Edition pre-order bonuses
Those who purchase the Mafia: Trilogy or pre-order Mafia: Definitive Edition will receive the Chicago Outfit bonus pack, which comes with the following in-game goodies for Mafia: Definitive Edition:
- Smith V12 limousine
- Gold semi-automatic pistol weapon skin
- The Don outfit
You'll also get bonus protagonist outfits and vehicles for each Definitive Edition you own--and you can use those bonuses in any of the three games:
- Mafia: Definitive Edition: Tommy Angelo’s suit and cab
- Mafia II: Definitive Edition: Vito Scaletta’s leather jacket and sports car
- Mafia III: Definitive Edition: Lincoln Clay’s army jacket and muscle car
If that wasn't enough, linking your free 2K account to your platform of choice unlocks even more items:
- Mafia: Definitive Edition: Black Cats Motorcycle Pack
- Mafia II: Definitive Edition: Made Man Pack
- Mafia III: Definitive Edition: Classico three-piece suit & IL Duca revolver
If you're new to the Mafia series, the Mafia Trilogy makes the most sense. You'll get all three games and the pre-order bonuses.
You can pre-order Mafia: Definitive Edition separately for $40, and you'll still get the pre-order bonuses. Mafia: Definitive Edition looks like the most visually impressive game of the bunch, and the fact that it has been fully remade should help to modernize the understandably dated mechanics. Pre-orders are live on all three platforms right now.
Mafia II's Definitive Edition, which is remastered in HD and supports 4K, is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC for $30. PC users get the upgrade for free if they already own Mafia II on Steam. But this is the first time Mafia II has been available as a PS4 or Xbox One title (Mafia II for Xbox 360 is backward-compatible, though).
Mafia III's Definitive edition comes with every piece of DLC. If you own a physical copy of Mafia III, you can simply download all of the DLC packs for free now.
