The Xbox store appears to have spoiled the big announcement for a remaster of the original Mafia game, set to release on August 28, 2020.

On May 10, the Mafia Twitter account suddenly awoke, posting a cryptic tweet that instantly started speculation about a remaster or a new game. Then, on May 13, they posted a teaser for Mafia: Trilogy, with a full announcement due on May 19.

On May 13, it was noticed that the Xbox Store was already showing Mafia: Definitive Edition, showing the listing for the game and its release date. One strange thing to note is that the game is listed as ‘E’ for everyone – which is unlikely – meaning the game has perhaps not been rated yet.

“Re-made from the ground up, rise through the ranks of the Mafia during the Prohibition era of organized crime,” the official description reads.

“After a run-in with the mob, cab driver Tommy Angelo is thrust into a deadly underworld. Initially uneasy about falling in with the Salieri crime family, Tommy soon finds that the rewards are too big to ignore.”

The description also claims that the game has been “faithfully recreated,” but will feature an “expanded story, gameplay and original score.”

The first game was released all the way back in 2002, and the new screenshots show how improved the graphical quality is.

When is Mafia: Definitive Edition coming out?

The Microsoft listing says the Mafia remaster will release on August 28, 2020.

Presumably, this is when the entire Mafia trilogy will be releasing, as players will receive Tommy’s Suit and Cab in both Mafia II and Mafia III Definitive Editions.

There are no store listings for the Definitive Editions of Mafia II or III yet. The full announcement on May 19 should reveal more.

Best Gallo SA12 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

With the return of shotguns as secondary weapons, many Black Ops Cold War players have been bombarding their foes with deadly buckshot rounds. Here’s the attachments you need to make the Gallo SA12 even more lethal. 

The Gallo SA12 (SPAS-12) has been a fan-favorite ever since Modern Warfare 2 hit our screens back in 2009. This semi-auto shotgun is capable of dishing out some truly dizzying damage numbers, particularly when you use the loadout below. While it may not have the range of the game’s SMGs or assault rifles, it does have fantastic kill potential in close-quarter firefights. 

With its high rate of fire and fantastic hip fire accuracy, the Gallo SA12 is a great gun to use. If you’re after a snappy secondary that can melt multiple foes in a single clip, then be sure to copy this Gallo SA12 loadout for yourself.

The Gallo SA12 will be a great choice for those playing Nuketown ’84.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Gallo SA12 in Black Ops Cold War:

  • Duckbill Choke
  • 21.4” Reinforced Heavy
  • SWAT 5MW Laser Sight
  • STANAG 12 Round Tube 
  • Wire Stock 

The loadout for the best Gallo SA12 is pretty simple. First up is the Duckbill Choke. This muzzle widens the shotgun’s pellet spread, allowing you to catch multiple enemies in the pellet radius. It also makes hip firing even more viable as you don’t have to ADS in order to remain accurate. 

Unlike the Hauer 77, the Gallo SA12 has a much faster rate of fire thanks to it being semi-auto. As a result, this loadout utilizes the 21.4” Reinforced Heavy to complement this aspect of the gun. Not only does the 21.4” Reinforced Heavy bolster the Gallo’s effective damage range, it also drastically increases its fire rate. 

While you still won’t be able to effectively kill targets outside of any close-quarter ranges, the increased fire rate will keep you competitive against the likes of the MP5 and Milano 821.

The Gallo SA12 is till behind the Hauer 77 when it comes to popularity, but this could soon change.

Having attachments that bolster a gun’s ADS speed is usually the desired route to take, but the nature of the Gallo’s bullet spread enables us to focus purely on hip fire instead. The SWAT 5MW Laser Sight is the perfect addition as it increases hip fire accuracy by a massive 35%. 

Rounding things off at the bottom of the attachment list is the STANAG 12 Round Tube and Wire Stock. The STANAG 12 Round Tube greatly enhances the amount of ammo the Gallo SA12 can carry. This particularly important given the gun’s fire rate and two-shot kill potential. 

Meanwhile, the Wire Stock adds a small 10% increase to sprint to fire speed, enabling you to aggressively close the gap and barrage your enemies with lethal buckshot. It’s a pretty simple build, but one that works wonders, particularly on the game’s smaller maps.
