Mafia: Definitive Edition is getting the official gameplay reveal later today, but the footage has already leaked and you can see it below, in glorious 4K resolution.
Part one of the Mafia crime saga—1930s, Lost Heaven, Illinois.
Re-made from the ground up with a new game engine, an updated script, new cutscenes, additional gameplay sequences, and more, you’ll rise through the ranks of the Italian Mafia during the Prohibition era of organized crime. After a run-in with the mob, cab driver Tommy Angelo is thrust into a deadly underworld. Initially uneasy about falling in with the Salieri crime family, Tommy soon finds that some rewards are too big to pass up.
