The open-world Mafia: Definitive Edition has been given various improvements. As the developers of Hangar 13 announced, you can look forward to an expanded map.
With the Mafia: Definitive Edition, a technically and playfully revised remake of the open-world classic from 2002 will be released in September. As the responsible developers of Hangar 13 announced, you can look forward to a completely renewed map of the game world in the course of the new edition, which has been expanded in many areas.
When it comes to the game world and its basics, the creativities largely based on the original. Players of the original Mafia will find their way around immediately. The technical improvements include the fact that the Mafia: Definitive Edition will no longer have loading screens or invisible walls.
It also says that the city center has been given various upgrades and now includes more tall building complexes, as one would expect from the period after the construction boom of the 1920s and 1930s.
Chinatown is now typical of the era with its own architecture and is populated by a flourishing Chinese community that did not exist in the original game. In other areas of the city, the topography has been changed to provide more variety and sights.
“Hangar 13 reviewed heatmaps of players’ driving routes to see which roads were being used most frequently during missions, and based on this data, the locations of certain objectives were changed. As a result, you’re more inclined to pass through a variety of different neighborhoods and explore new areas, instead of finding yourself on the same roads over and over again like it’s your daily commute,” the developers explain.
More details on this topic and the complete revised map of the game world can be found on the official website.
Mafia: Definitive Edition will release on September 25, 2020, for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
