Yet another classic franchise is celebrating a milestone! The Mafia series is turning 20 and to celebrate 2K are giving away the original game of steam for free on Steam from Sept. 1 – 5.
The first game in the series, Mafia, was developed by Illusion Softworks and published by Gathering of Developers for Microsoft Windows in August 2002. It was later ported to the PlayStation 2 and Xbox in February 2004 and March 2004, respectively. Set in the fictional city of Lost Heaven, loosely based in Chicago, from 1930 to 1938, the game follows Tommy Angelo, a taxi driver-turned-mobster, and his rise and fall within the Salieri crime family.
A sequel was released in August 2010, and a third game, Mafia III by Hangar 13, was released in October 2016. A remake of the first game, Mafia: Definitive Edition, also developed by Hangar 13, was released in September 2020.
