Remade from the ground up, Mafia: Definitive Edition makes one of the best stories ever told in video games much more pleasing on the eyes.
Though if you’re thinking about picking Mafia: Definitive Edition up, or have already done so, you might be wondering how long it takes to beat it. And as usual, the answer isn’t so simple.
With its story unfolding over 20 chapters of varying lengths, plus a prologue and an epilogue, most players making their way through Mafia: Definitive Edition on a difficulty setting appropriate to them will complete it in around 10-12 hours. With many collectibles to find, however, some players may find themselves spending more time in each chapter or returning to them, extending their playtime.
To further complicate matters, there’s also a classic difficulty that poses a great challenge that players will have to overcome if they want to unlock all of the game’s achievements or trophies. And there’s a freeride mode for those who want to explore the game’s open world without the story getting in the way.
Basically then, it will likely take you 10-12 hours to beat Mafia: Definitive Edition. But if you like it, you might possibly spend double that time with it or even more.
