Mafia Definitive Edition is the remake of the original action-adventure that came out back in 2002. This is a modern retelling of the classic from Hanger 13 and 2K. The title is available on PC through Steam and on Xbox One and PS4. If you are on PC and are running into the Mafia Definitive Edition Not Launching Issue, here is how you can fix it.
The game has Very Positive reviews on Steam, and much better reception when compared to the other two entries and their definitive editions.
Mafia Definitive Edition Not Launching Issue
A few users can’t seem to get the game working, primarily because of the launcher. This occurs when players try to either use the icon shortcut from Steam, or the Play button in the Library. You can get the game running by following the steps mentioned below.
Open your Steam library and right-click on Mafia: Definitive Edition
Select Properties, and now head to the LOCAL FILES tab
Here, select BROWSE LOCAL FILES. This will take you to where the game is installed
Now, in this folder, instead of running the game with the launcher, run it with mafiadefinitiveedition.exe
This will launch the game
To make sure the game runs through this every time, simply disable the launcher in-game. You could also create a shortcut for the exe and launch it from there.
