Mafia: Definitive Edition’s first story trailer (re)introduces us to Tommy Angelo

The first story trailer for the Mafia remake has been unveiled at the PC Gaming Show

Last month, 2K and Hangar 13 announced Mafia: Trilogy – a series of Definitive Editions of the crime games series’ three titles so far, including a “built-from-the-ground-up” remake of the very first Mafia. Now, at tonight’s PC Gaming Show, the studios have given us a first proper peek at the Mafia: Definitive Edition remake, with a brand-new story trailer – and, as you can imagine, it’s a whole world away from the 2002 original.

The Mafia: Definitive Edition story trailer, included below, is titled New Beginnings and (re)introduces the game’s protagonist Tommy Angelo, a taxi driver trying to make a living in the fictional, prohibition-era city Lost Heaven, who gets swept into working for the Salieri family – but this time with shiny all-new visuals.

In a recent earnings call, 2K’s parent company Take-Two revealed the totally rebuilt game has been “fully remade”, with “new tech, new voice acting, new game mechanics, and more” – and that’s pretty evident in the clip below. Though there’s no gameplay to get a look at just yet, it’s pretty clear the Mafia remake’s going to be a whole new experience for both nostalgic fans of the original and newcomers.

Here’s the brand-new Mafia: Definitive Edition story trailer, New Beginnings, piping hot from the PC Gaming Show:

The Mafia: Definitive Edition release date is set for August 28. The Mafia II and III Definitive Edition remasters are already available, and if you’ve bought Mafia: Trilogy, you’ll get access to Mafia: Definitive Edition as soon as it launches later this year.
