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.

I'm picking it up for sure, but it's not on PS Store yet.
I will wait and buy the trilogy.word up son
I'll likely get the trilogy. This series looks like something that I'd really enjoy.
It's up on the UK store now guys
"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."
So I've just picked up Mafia 2 Remastered- and my PS Plus copy of Mafia 3 will be upgraded to the deluxe edition for free? Is this verified, I couldn't find any info on this.
@TrueAssassin86x Thanks! I've just checked the store- I think it's still a bit of a mess for me. I can't download the upgrade pack as it says I don't own Mafia 3, but I can download each bit separately apart from "Faster Baby" which it still says is £11.99...
I'm definitely interested in buying the Mafia remake. Played II on the 360, good game. Not keen on III.
But where is the retail release?
"All existing owners of Mafia II on Steam will be upgraded to Mafia II: Definitive Edition, while all existing owners of Mafia III on all platforms will be upgraded to Mafia III: Definitive Edition"
Yes, that's correct.
My Mafia 3 just updated itself to the Definitive Edition after i put the disc in.
Well they just earned a Mafia 1 sale from me.
I do not usually care for remasters but them upgrading me 2 out of 3 games for free deserve some support.
I'll pay for #1. It is not even full price for a "remake"
No one knows how good the remastered 1st game is yet other than the short trailer. Could have terrible fps for all we know without actual gameplay.
If I own mafia 3 but a physical copy do I still get a free upgrade how does that work
2nd one not available in the uk on playstation? is it coming out in a later date?
"Customers who own a combination of titles will receive special reduced-price upgrade offers to complete their trilogy via in-game menus within each of the Mafia titles.”
Polygon is reporting you could get a discount code from the remaster you own to buy the one you missing!
Will Mafia 1 and 2 be available on disc?
Mafia 2 has a great story, but I want to point out the DLC for it is terrible.
Looking forward to playing 1 remastered, I've never played it before.
That's awesome of 2K to upgrade previous owners. This kind of good will goes along way and isnt forgotten by gamers.
Er well of course Mafia III hasn't changed 'significantly' - it didn't need to it's only about 4 years out. Mafia is the only one that genuinely would benefit from a remaster - and yes I have played all 3. Never completed the 3rd one - but then neither did the developer before they were forced to release it. Aaahh such is gaming slapdashery these days.
@LordAinsley The DLC isn't 'terrible' it just doesn't add enough to the base game. DLC is a terrible concept though I'll grant you. It's slowly killing gaming - most actual gamers just wait around for the Finished Edition..ahem sorry I mean the "Complete Edition" to come out, so the base game sells less. I remember the days when Red Alert 2 came out and then an ADD-ON pack came out and it added so much to the original game it was basically Red Alert 2.5. Value like that won't happen again because publishers more than likely order some content to not be included in the base game to allow for their 'roadmap' of milking gamers a couple of months later.
