This afternoon 2K Games should release the first gameplay video of Mafia: Definitive Edition, a remake of the game from 2002, but which seems to have already surfaced on the net.
The IGN editorial team, in fact, has published a long 4K gameplay video of Mafia: Definitive Edition on YouTube that can be seen at the bottom, where we can see what the ambitious Hangar 13 studio is working on. This gameplay, lasting about a quarter of an hour, is also commented by Haden Blackman, President and COO of the American studio.
Some features have been changed, such as that of “authentic vehicles of the period.” There are also bicycles, among other things. The main mission shown is Journey to the Country, and there are also other small parts of the game.
In case you are not familiar with Mafia 1, you should know that the open-world structure was different from what we are used to with other games: the police were very aggressive and realistic, and it was even necessary to respect the laws of the Highway Code, therefore pushing too hard on the accelerator or crossing with the red light could cause several problems.
It was explained that the original difficulty will still be accessible without any kind of problem, but that there will also be options, although not going too much in detail, for those who want to enjoy the story without worrying too much about the police.
