Mafia: Definitive Edition is still several months away from its release date but the developer Hangar 13 decided to give us a closer look at the game via the latest gameplay demo. It is a lengthy video featuring Hangar 13 president and chief creative officer Haden Blackman who guides us through 14 minutes of action-packed missions.
Blackman also took the opportunity to explain how the team managed to build this world of Mafia 1 from the ground up without losing the feel and the spirit of the original.
"The entire city has been rebuilt and even redesigned in some areas to provide more vistas and points of interests without losing any of the original game's landmarks," he said.
The game also received a number of new audio and rendering features including a brand new lighting engine.
As for the gameplay, it showcases an iconic mission named "A Trip to the Country", which takes place halfway through the game. It's set on a stormy night and we have to say it looks absolutely stunning with the rain effects and lighting. Check it out below:
