As long rumored, and eventually confirmed a week ago, the fan-favourite Mafia series is finally back. As leaked, 2K has pulled a surprise release for the Mafia 2 and 3 Definitive Editions today itself when they were supposed to announce something for the fans. Both the games are available to purchase and download, right now.

The Mafia 3 Definitive Edition is just the main game bundled with all Story DLC and Bonus Packs in one place.

While the Mafia 2 Definitive Edition is an “ultra HD remaster” of the 2010 masterpiece, with new textures, lighting and effects, and includes all DLC content.

Owners of the original titles will be getting the Definitive Editions for free, except Mafia 1. The Mafia: Definitive Edition is a complete remake from the ground up with enticing new breathtaking visuals and new content.

Mafia II: Definitive Edition will be automatically granted to all existing owners of Mafia II on Steam today for free. Additionally, all existing Mafia III owners on PS4, Xbox One, and Steam will be upgraded to Mafia III: Definitive Edition today at no additional cost. If you own a combination of titles, you’ll have a cheaper upgrade offer to complete your trilogy.

See how the Mafia 2 Definitive Edition (running on PS4 Pro) compares to the original (PS3) in this side-by-side comparison:

“The original Mafia made such a lasting impact on how video games can tell serious stories, and we know how much the series’ fans still revere it,” said Haden Blackman, President and CCO at Hangar 13. “Nearly 20 years after the Mafia series started, we now have an amazing opportunity to introduce this beloved game to a new generation of players and give longtime fans a chance to relive Tommy’s story with a stellar modern presentation, as well as new story elements and gameplay features.”

[Update: The Mafia 2 Definitive Edition launched as a buggy mess on the consoles, with the PS4 Pro struggling to run at a constant 30 FPS in some areas, performing even worse than the base PS4 at times. The developer, d3t Ltd is working with 2K Games to fix these issues. Taking to Twitter, the studio said: “Thanks for your valuable #Mafia2DefinitiveEdition feedback. We’re listening and working with 2K to continue to support your experience. Reminder, if you are experiencing any issues or have questions, please get in touch with @2KSupport.”]

The Mafia 3 ‘Definitive Edition’ isn’t really a definitive edition on the PS4 Pro anymore either, as an update patch apparently scrapped out the new additions to the game, dropping the resolution from 1440p, scrapping HDR, and generally just making the whole game look worse. The studio is now working on fixing the issues with the remasters.
