But Morello's people find him, in order to punish the driver for helping competitors. Fleeing, Thomas gets to a bar owned by Salieri. So, by chance, a simple city guy finds himself in the ranks of one of the strongest mafia families in the city.
Mafia: Definitive Edition takes place in the 1930s in the fictional town of Lost Haven. The final edition completely redesigned and expanded the story and the game world, while leaving it recognizable and alive. The presentation of the story is colorful and cinematic, the developers were not too lazy to master the techniques of the best filmmakers.
The scene itself has also undergone qualitative changes. The streets are full of details, each lane is saturated with the atmosphere of American life of the 30s. You can go into many buildings and see that the details of the premises are also not satisfactory.
A variety of authentic cars and, for the first time in the series, motorcycles are used to move. As in the original, the physics of transport behavior is close to realism, but for those who like lightness, there is an arcade mode.
The arsenal traditionally consists of real weapons typical of their time.
