The developers of Mafia: Definitive Edition remake have published a new blog post on the official site to introduce players to a new mode called Free Ride.
Ondřej Vévoda, the Lead Designer at Hangar 13, describes Mafia: Definitive Edition Free Ride mode as a bonus mode that allows players to explore Lost Heaven freely, freely without any mission objectives. It’s an opportunity to check out the beautiful vistas around the city, test drive the vehicles in your garage, find collectibles out in the world, and maybe uncover a few secrets.
To unlock Free Ride mode, all you need to do is complete the first mission in Mafia: Definitive Edition’s main story.
“When you enter Free Ride, you’ll start at Salieri’s Bar, with access to your garage, wardrobe, and armory, plus the ability to change the time of day and weather,” says Vévoda. “Once Tommy is kitted up, you can head into the city and start poking around.”
The most dedicated players may find a few unlockables as a reward for following a trail of cryptic clues.
