[Update #2]: Mafia: Definitive Edition, a full remake of the classic game, has now been unleashed.

[Update]: Mafia: Definitive Edition devs have shared a lengthy gameplay preview of the upcoming remake. Also, the release date has been pushed back from August to September 25th.

If you were surprised when 2K Games suddenly revealed the Mafia: Trilogy collection for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, you might be even more shocked to hear that the trilogy has now already launched! However, it isn't entirely complete just yet given that this 'trilogy' currently only contains two games: the most recent Mafia 3, and an HD remaster of Mafia 2.

The most exciting part of the collection, a full remake of Mafia 1, will be arriving on August 28th as a free update for all current and future owners. While the exact details are few and far between, expect Mafia: Definitive Edition to be rebuilt from the ground up with greatly improved visuals and expanded dialogue, more storylines and backstories to explore, additional cutscenes and gameplay features, as well as a variety of other minor enhancements and upgrades.

As for what exactly this might look like in action, that you can get a little bit of a sneak peek at through the recently posted teaser trailer. Have a gander, it's a fairly short one:
