Mafia Definitive Edition gets new trailer ahead of September release at Gamescom Opening Night Live

The team behind Mafia Definitive Edition thought they'd whet your whistle a little more before the game launches next month.


Next month the long-running Mafia franchise will finally be getting a polished new remake for current gen consoles, but before the remastered game comes out, the team at 2K thought they'd give us one more new trailer to show off just how good the Mafia Definitive Edition is looking. The trailer was revealed for the very first time as part of the Gamescom Opening Night Live spectacular hosted by the one and only Geoff Keighley and it encompases a lot of what people love about gangster games including the cinematic cutscenes and frantic action sequences.

Mafia fans have been patiently waiting for this current-gen remaster and, if this trailer is any indication, the Definitive Edition is definitely going to be worth the long wait. The trailer starts off with a simple mob meeting, but quickly escalates to show off just how good some of the gameplay action is going to be when Mafia Definitive Edtion launches. You can view the trailer for yourself in the embed below to see what all the hype is about for yourself and get pumped up for the game’s release next month.

The Mafia series has been a staple in the open-world story-driven action genre for quite a long time now and it’s great to see that it will now be available for a new generation of gamers to experience for the first time. It's also going to give older fans a chance to relive some of their favorite moments from the franchise with a brand-new coat of polish. As of right now, the Mafia Definitive Edition is set to launch on September 25th on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
