Mafia Trilogy in VR
Mafia Trilogy is the remastered version of the Mafia games series that includes Mafia: Definitive Edition (Mafia 1), Mafia II: Definitive Edition (Mafia 2), and Mafia III: Definitive Edition (Mafia 3) and DLC releases.
The protagonist of Mafia III is Lincoln Clay, a Vietnam War veteran who starts his own criminal empire to avenge the killing of his adopted family, the Black Mob, and was left to die by Marcano Crime Family.
Live the life of a gangster whose hands hold rusty guns. Competing Hitman, our avatar requires a little attention to launch a perfect shot. Lincoln clay will be throwing his stunts against melee and local mercenaries.
After the recent changes, The Mafia trilogy reached a tremendous score, thanks to the bullet physics. Lincoln can drive and steal vintage cars to explore the open world until the tires go thin. Experience orange skies and the dark dust in the game.
Thanks to the “R.E.A.L. VR mods” developer Luke Ross, you can now play Mafia Trilogy in VR with the mods he created for Mafia II and Mafia III in early November, 2021. He released the VR mod for Mafia I during mid-September last year.

How do I stop motion sickness in VR?
As a gamer, you know the pros of VR. But a few cons matter too. Mafia triggers an intense experience, but beginners experience motion sickness. We won’t suggest you switch to VR in this case.
Make sure to disable ASW and Motion Smoothing before starting with the game. Users often report lag in the gaming experience, as Mafia is not for VR in the first place.
