The pub­lish­er of the Mafia fran­chise has some good news for fans of the series who plan on buy­ing the remake ver­sions. If you already own Mafia II on Steam, you can get the upgrade for free. Mafia III’s free upgrade will be across all plat­forms (PS4, Xbox One and PC) and gives access to all the game’s DLC

Addi­tion­al­ly, the game will auto­mat­i­cal­ly update to the Defin­i­tive Edi­tion if you have the orig­i­nal installed on your con­sole and you can claim the extra con­tent in var­i­ous dig­i­tal stores as well. 

The free upgrades were announced along­side the offi­cial details on Mafia: Defin­i­tive Edi­tion with­in a 2K blog post: “Note that if you already own Mafia II on Steam, you will be auto­mat­i­cal­ly grant­ed Mafia II: Defin­i­tive Edi­tion at no addi­tion­al cost. Fur­ther­more, if you already own Mafia III on Xbox One, PlaySta­tion 4, or Steam, you will be upgrad­ed to Mafia III: Defin­i­tive Edi­tion at no addi­tion­al cost.”

The free upgrade for Mafia II is only avail­able on PC via Steam, and unlocks three sto­ry expan­sions — Jim­my’s Vendet­ta, The Betray­al of Jim­my and Joe’s Adven­ture — along with four gear packs. The Mafia III’s Defin­i­tive Edi­tion upgrade comes with three sto­ry mis­sions as well — Faster, Baby!, Stones Unturned and Sign of the Times — and two gear packs. Even if you buy a phys­i­cal copy of Mafia III in the future, you can still grab the DLC for free. 

Mafia: Defin­i­tive Edi­tion isn’t yet avail­able, but you can pre-order the game as a stand­alone or pur­chase it as part of the Mafia: Tril­o­gy. This will give you access to Mafia II: Defin­i­tive Edi­tion and Mafia III: Defin­i­tive Edi­tion so you can play them before the Mafia: Defin­i­tive Edi­tion is released on August 28th. Mafia II: Defin­i­tive Edi­tion will also be avail­able as a sep­a­rate pur­chase for $30 on all platforms.
