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?
