GTA: The Trilogy Remastered looks great!

Rockstar has just released its first trailer for Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition, which is due to launch on November 11th on PC, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. Additionally, the trilogy will be coming to Android and iOS next year. 

The visual improvements with Rockstar’s remastered GTA trilogy will speak for themselves if you watch the trailer below. Character models have been improved, giving them a less angular and more rounded appearance, the game’s lighting system has been upgraded, reflections have been added to the game and textures are enhanced across all three games. Draw distances have also been stretched out to reduce pop-in, making all three games look better on high-resolution screens. 

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition were developed by Grove Street Games and Rockstar North. All three games will receive GTA V-style controls, a new mini-map, an improved gunplay/targeting system, an updated UI, and the ability to restart failed missions immediately. These changes will make GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas more enjoyable to replay. 

On Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition will be playable at 4K 60 FPS. For Geforce RTX GPU users, the trilogy will support DLSS, Nvidia’s AI upsampling technology. The PC version of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition will be available through the Rockstar Launcher.     


These classic 3D Grand Theft Auto titles have never looked better. It is clear that a lot of time and effort has been put into remastering these games. That said, the pricing of this trilogy will be hard to swallow for many gamers, as Rockstar has priced Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition at $59.99/£54.99.
