This article first appeared in PC Gamer magazine issue 364 in December 2021, as part of our ‘Mod Spotlight’ series. Every month we explore cool new mods that breathe new life – or just inject a bit of chaos – into our favourite games. 

As mods go, they don’t get much bigger or more ambitious than this one: a full recreation of the RMS Titanic… and it’s a mod for Mafia. In 1912 the Titanic was the biggest passenger ship ever built and, as I’m guessing you’re aware, it sank on its first voyage from England to New York. There was a pretty major movie about it in 1997 (but there was a far better movie about it in 1958). 

Of all the games to add the Titanic to, I never would have guessed Mafia would be a good fit, but it really is. The full-conversion mod project has been underway for more than a decade, and it’s important to note it’s not finished. The version I played was just part one of an even bigger planned mod. But what’s there is playable, and if you enjoy Mafia or just want to explore a beautiful and impressive recreation of the Titanic, this is a mod you should absolutely try, even in its unfinished state.
