We all knew about it last week after a surprising amount of leaks, but publisher 2K Games has now confirmed that Mafia: Trilogy is coming to PlayStation 4. It contains a complete remake of the original PlayStation 2 game in the form of Mafia: Definitive Edition, a remaster for Mafia II: Definitive Edition, and the base game plus all its DLC for Mafia III: Definitive Edition. You can play the franchise's second and third entries starting today, while the remake of the first title arrives on 28th August 2020.

To mark the occasion, developer Hangar 13 has released three different trailers. We've embedded the Mafia: Definitive Edition trailer above, but you can head through this link to check out its sequel. And here's the trailer for Mafia III: Definitive Edition. Mafia: Trilogy will cost $60, but individually you can buy Mafia: Definitive Edition for $40 or the second and third titles for $30 each.

We've already covered a lot of the information that has gotten out about Mafia: Trilogy early, so here you can check out a side by side comparison of Mafia II: Definitive Edition. Don't forget that this bundle is a full-priced package and Mafia III: Definitive Edition does not contain any upgrades. It's just the base game along with all the DLC. Game Informer has published a very handy guide to what's what:

  • 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.

A nice little bonus is that if you already own Mafia III on PS4, your copy will be upgraded to the Definitive Edition free of charge. Are you picking up Mafia: Trilogy later today? Let us know in the comments below.
