The modern remake of the classic Mafia video game, Mafia: Definitive Edition, is now live on Microsoft’s family of Xbox One consoles.
While other Definitive Edition versions of games mostly just feature an HD visual upgrade, Mafia: Definitive Edition is a complete remake of the original with a new game engine, extra story content, and a new score. All of the content from the original version is included here but it’s presented in a much better way and is accompanied by addition content for players to discover.
Here’s the official game description:
