Mafia: Definitive Edition Gets a Stylish Noir Mode in its First Update

Mafia: Definitive Edition Noir Mode

There’s lots of great new stuff coming to Mafia: Definitive Edition in its first post-launch update.

2K and Hangar 13 have just released the very first post-launch update for Mafia: Definitive Edition and it adds quite a few new features for players to enjoy. The first, and coolest, is the game’s new Noir Mode.

In Noir Mode, the world takes on a completely different feel. Everything is in vintage black and white with a moody film grain to make it feel as though you’re really in the Prohibition Era. It adds an extra stylish edge to what’s already a beautiful game, and even if you’ve already played it makes Mafia: Definitive Edition well worth revisiting.

But that’s not the only change. The game’s first update also includes new heads-up display options; players can now customise how they use their map by toggling objective markers on and offer. Navigation features can also be turned on and off, like the turn-by-turn instructions or mini-map GPS.

If you prefer to play with a screen as free from clutter as possible, a new minimal HUD is available, which hides the mini-map, speedometer and objective text.

New content has also been added to Mafia: Definitive Edition’s Free Ride mode. It depends on which vehicle you’re using, and where, but you might discover some new features. Interesting…

Of course, the game’s update also addresses a few issues, such as animations that didn’t load correctly, and a bug that prevented vehicles from unlocking. You can see the full notes on the update on Mafia’s official website.

Becca knew that she would be addicted to video games for the rest of her life when she saw the first pixelated zombie shambling across her TV screen while playing Resident Evil 3. She particularly enjoys being scared, laughing until she cries, or just plain crying while experiencing games. When she isn't playing games she loves spoiling her cat Usagi and eating any kind of sushi she can find.
