Conceived as a full remake of the original, Mafia: Definitive Edition was built from the ground up with new assets and an expanded story, although missions and arcs from the original game are carried over. As with the 2002 game, players control Tommy Angelo throughout the game's single-player campaign, and its world is navigated on foot or by vehicle. New to the remake is the introduction of motorcycles, a first in the series. Mafia: Definitive Edition's gameplay mechanics are based on those of Mafia III.
In 1930, after being strong-armed into helping two members of the Salieri family - Paulie and Sam - escape an ambush by the rival Morello family, impoverished taxi driver Thomas "Tommy" Angelo is assaulted by members of the Morello family in an act of revenge. While he is rescued by the Salieri family after calling in a favor Don Ennio Salieri promised him, Tommy loses his job after his employers learn about his involvement with the Mafia. With a lack of job opportunities due to the ongoing Great Depression, Tommy is forced to accept Salieri's offer to join his organization, and soon befriends Paulie and Sam as they complete various jobs together.
Over the following years, the Salieri and Morello families engage in an all-out war for control of Lost Heaven, while Tommy starts a family and becomes disillusioned by the violent and decadent lifestyle he is now living. Tommy's life as a family man leads him to question his morals and go against his orders when it comes to murdering certain people. When Salieri eventually learns about this, Tommy finds himself betrayed by his former allies and, fearing for his family's safety, arranges for witness protection with Detective Norman in exchange for testifying against the Salieri family. The entire game is told as a flashback, as Tommy explains to Norman his rise to prominence and eventual fall within Salieri's organization.
