Free Ride was one of the most iconic and fun game modes to play in the original Mafia. The mode lets you take a respite from the main missions and wreak havoc in the game’s vast open-world. If you’re looking to unlock different supercars, complete additional missions, or just mess around – Free Ride is the mode you’re looking for. In this Mafia: Definitive Edition guide, we’ve detailed everything you need to know about how to unlock Free Ride mode and its activities.
Mafia: Definitive Edition Free Ride Activities
Free Ride mode in Mafia remake is all about pure chaos (thanks to Vinny’s armory) with a few secrets sprinkled around. One of these secrets is finding Post Cards that will help you unlock secret supercars in the game.

Another thing you’ll be able to do in Mafia’s Free Ride mode is complete various time trials. To get started, you’ll need to travel to Salieri’s Bar and read a note there. The first note will have to head over to the westernmost edge of Little Italy and answer the phone. Answering the phone will start the “The Crazy Horse” mission that requires you to drive a car (without any scratches) to the marked location. Once you’re done, you’ll be able to revisit Salieri’s Bar for some more missions.
How to Unlock?
Unlike the original, the Free Ride isn’t further divided into Free Ride and Free Ride Extreme. Unlocking the Free Ride is as simple as it can get. Trying to launch it from the very start of the game will show a message saying that you must complete the game’s prologue. To unlock it, you’ll need to complete “An Offer You Can’t Refuse”. It’s a fairly straightforward mission that will immediately take you back to 2002 when the original game released.
The mission has you trying to ditch the cops and can easily be completed in roughly 10 minutes. Once you’re done with the mission, return to the main menu from where you’ll be able to launch the game mode. From there, you’ll be able to explore the city of Lost Heaven in all its glory.
