This news was broke by publisher 2K Games just recently, which is pretty incredible because the Mafia: Trilogy was just announced. \n \nIt seems like the publisher wants to give Mafia die-hards some definitive experiences to enjoy before the trilogy is officially available. The editions are available on the PC, Xbox One, and PS4. \n \nIt's also worth mentioning that those who already own the original version of Mafia 3 will be able to pick up the remastered version free of charge on the aforementioned platforms. \n \nIt's clear. Now's a great time to be a Mafia fan. The series is once again receiving a lot of spotlight, featuring better visuals and performance.

You'll get to experience a lot of amazing things centered around crime and gangs. Each one of the installments features a compelling story and an amazing cast of characters. That's pretty hard to find in action games today. \n \nA lot of times, you'll find characters lacking depth and you don't feel a lot of weight to the story. That's not the case at all with the Mafia games. Additionally, their gameplay is fantastic. \n \nYou'll get to enjoy competent shooting mechanics that aren't overly difficult to master right away. It will be amazing to see how the HD versions look running on advanced consoles and PC units. \n \nAugust 28 is still a couple of months away, but it's nice that the publisher isn't making loyal fans wait. Now's the perfect time to dive back in to the series or experience it for the first time.
