When I goto the Microsoft store it says I can play Mafia III or purchase the definitive edition for $29.99. I have a physical copy installed. How do I get the free upgrade to definitive edition?
It looks exactly like Mafia 2 on PC. Don't know about Mafia 1 yet because the teaser doesn't really show anything. And I don't care about Mafia 3 at all. It's still a pretty new game. Honestly disappointed so far.
