We know virtually everything there is to know about Mafia II: Definitive Edition, despite publisher 2K Games clinging to an embargo regarding the remaster. With the title launching a little earlier in Australia, footage of the crime-themed open worlder is already online, and one YouTube channel has produced a handy side-by-side, comparing the PlayStation 4 version to its older PlayStation 3 counterpart.
This is definitely a remaster rather than a remake, so don’t go expecting any mind-blowing changes. However, it’s clear that the title’s running at a much higher resolution on the PS4, with better lighting and particle effects. It looks pretty good, and it’s definitely a game that’s worth experiencing – we described it as “stunning” in our original Mafia II review. But are you planning to revisit Empire Bay? Sleep with the fishes in the comments section below.
Having never played Mafia, but now curious about it, the trilogy looks to be an excellent value. 🙂
Looking goog.i can dig it.this is definitely a amazing looking remastered.i play the ps3 version .and this remastered looks way better.word up son
With Mafia 2 being a Definitive Edition it'll come with all the DLC, definitely getting Mafia 2 it's a really good game.
I'm digging the music in this vid. Reminds me of interludes you used to get on hip-hop albums back in the 90's.
Is there a retail release for any of this though?
I still have it on my ps3 but haven't played it for a long time and I really want the remade first game but I still have 3 as well. So I think I will buy 2 then wait for the remake in August and leave it at that.
It's not even showing on the Store, what a strange reveal and release this is.
Any word on price yet?
I've played the third, but heard nothing but good things about the 2nd. So will definitely pick this up at one point.
This is why backwards compatibility should be a bigger thing.
I still can't see it on the UK store! There's a tile for the Mafia trilogy, but when I select it everything underneath is blank.
@Craggis19 It should show up after 5pm so not long now
@roe Brilliant, thank you!
When is this actually out? Is it today? What time etc?
Seeing a lot of folks say it's a shocking port. Lots of bugs etc. Just a PSA to maybe await a review if you're thinking of buying it.
