2K Games have released a new gameplay trailer for Mafia: Definitive Edition during Gamescom Opening Night Live.
As detailed on the game’s official website, the trailer focuses on Tommy Angelo’s story, as he enters the Salieri Crime Family. The game’s cinematics also see the involvement of Tomáš Hřebíček (Head of Production and Media Director for Hangar 13) who worked on every game in the Mafia series.
Hřebíček explains how he approached the new cinematics.
“My heart is closest to the original, and I’m very glad we got the chance to revisit it using everything we’ve learned across all the Mafia games. Our main goal with Mafia: Definitive Edition was always to keep the spirit of the classic mob story. I strongly believe we kept in everything supporting this goal, and when we made changes it was in service of making the characters and story deeper and richer. Obviously, all the memorable moments from the original game are super important for us. We were always comparing our work with the original and striving to make the new version ‘the same but better.'”
Along with being shot like cinema (avoiding impossible camera angles as through the scene was a movie with a real camera), the voice actors had their faces scanned, capturing their facial expressions as they gave their performances.
