The game will be available free of charge until September 5.
2K launched the free game promotion to coincide with the title’s 20th anniversary and the announcement that a new entry in the open-world crime series is in development.
“While it’s a few years away and we can’t share anything more right now, we’re really excited to keep working on this beloved franchise and to entertain our players with new stories,”
The game will be a prequel and is being developed with Unreal Engine 5, according to a Kotaku report published earlier this year.
The last brand-new entry in the series, Mafia 3, was released in 2016 to mixed reviews.
Mafia: Definitive Edition was released for PC and consoles in 2020. The remake of the original game included an updated script, expanded backstories and additional cutscenes.
