MAFIA DEFINITIVE EDITION’S Free Ride Mode And PC Specs Explained

Mafia 2: Definitive Edition

Open-world games are the best and I’m not ashamed to say I love wandering around mindlessly in them and seeing what’s available for me. The original 2002 version of Mafia was the best. Love driving around in the game and modding it on PC so I can have some cool modern cars. The streets were livelyand driving from the city to the countryside was awesome. I didn’t care about the objectives or knocking out my enemies. I only played it to explore and see people and found new cars. The OG game had a couple of free ride modes that would allow players to explore the world. I’m happy to say that Mafia Definitive Edition will come with these modes in one fully-realized one.

Lead Designer at Hangar 13, Ondřej Vévoda says “Free Ride is a bonus mode that we included as a nod to the original game,” and “The basic idea is that Free Ride allows players to explore Lost Heaven freely without any mission objectives. It’s an opportunity to check out the beautiful vistas around the city, test drives the vehicles in your garage, find collectibles out in the world, and maybe uncover a few secrets.”

What’s cool is the fact that you can unlock this mode upon finishingthe game’s first mission. Most games don’t show all of their cards until you play a big portion of the game in story mode. 

Another aspect we may see in free ride mode is the implementation of the supernatural and weird stories that made their way into the original game. Vévoda stated that “After all the serious Mafia business of the main story, surreal challenges like shooting a sea monster or tailing an invisible man were a lot of fun and a great way to spend extra hours in the world once the story was complete.” when asked if those would make their way into this version of the game he said, “All I can say is: The truth is out there, you’ll have to see what secrets you can uncover for yourself in Free Ride when Mafia: Definitive Edition launches later this week”.

PC specs for the game don’t seem too crazy at all.
