The remake of Mafia 2 has become the most discussed topic in esports news from around the world. The series fans have been waiting for new updates that bring a big number of important changes to the game.
All Mafia games have this action-thriller atmosphere that makes players forget about time. The game’s main characters try to succeed in the criminal world and need to complete various missions, tasks, and overcome obstacles. Mafia is full of adventures and exciting moments and players become emotionally involved in the hero’s problems.
The game consists of three major parts: Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven, Mafia II, and Mafia III. The first two games have various stories and aren’t connected. The third version has a reference to the second part because it is its sequel. Mafia 2: Definitive Edition became the additional part that significantly improved the game.
Mafia 2 Remastered: modes and content packages remain the same
It is important to mention that players can still enjoy this stunning story about a person who enters the criminal world and sees how terrible, rigorous, and violent it is. We can say that the story of Mafia 2 is a classic gang drama.
At the same time, the remastered game was profoundly changed in terms of its graphics. The major change is, of course, its new high resolution (4K). Hangar 13 – the game studio that developed the game – did a great job and added many important graphic elements to the game. Now users can enjoy a perfect visual representation that flawlessly recaptures the atmosphere of a typical American city of the 1940s. In addition to this, players will have an opportunity to download content.
According to the game screenshots and official trailer, Hangar 13 has really improved graphics, so, the overall picture will look more realistic. Players, who have already tried the new version, confirm that these changes are noticeable. Despite geometry that hasn’t changed a lot, the better quality of the texture is plain to see. However, some gaming experts say that Mafia 2: Definitive Edition still has many drawbacks. For instance, problems with animations and awful representation of some characters in the game. Nonetheless, if you are going to play not on your personal computer but a game console, you will surely enjoy its 4K resolution.
In general, Mafia 2: Definitive Edition is a well-crafted gaming product. We can highlight several features that have significantly updated this version:
- high resolution;
- improved visuals;
- new background music – more than one hundred old songs that convey the spirit of America of the 1940-50s.
Mafia 2: Definitive Edition: the release date in 2020 is announced
As it turned out, Mafia 2: Definitive Edition was released several days ago – on May 19. The game launch became a real sensation in the gaming world. There were a few teasers before and the trilogy fans were waiting impatiently for a new edition. The remake of the first part of Mafia will be available only in summer, on August 28. Mafia 2: Definitive Edition can be played on a personal computer, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
It may seem strange that the developer has decided to start with the second game but it has reasons for this. The original game is quite old and its remastering will take long. Mafia 2 was a perfect game for adding new features to it.
