GTA: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition Gets Trailer and Screenshots, Launches Next Month

Matt Lorrigan

Rockstar Games has announced that Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition is coming to PS4 and PS5 on 11th November, and we've got our first look at the remastered games.

You can check out the new trailer here, which shows off the old versions against the remastered games. Rockstar has gone for a clean, exaggerated style in keeping with the art style of those original games, and while it might split opinion, we think it looks pretty good. The developer has also completely rebuilt the lighting system, improved draw distance, enhanced tree and foliage details, and added high-resolution textures. You can see our screenshot gallery here.

Outside of the visuals, the three games - GTA III, GTA: Vice City, and GTA: San Andreas - have all been updated with GTA V-style controls and targeting, improved mini-maps, weapon and radio station selection wheels, and the much-needed ability to instantly restart a failed mission. The games will also run at 4K / 60FPS on PS5.

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition is launching digitally on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC on 11th November 2021, with a physical release coming on 7th December 2021.

Finally, in a strange twist, PlayStation players will be able to play Grand Theft Auto III – The Definitive Edition by itself through PlayStation Now from 7th December, but not the other two titles. It's unclear whether Rockstar will be selling the three games individually outside of this one offer.

  • $100AUD on the Aus Playstation Store. Better have all the original music at that price.

    Interestingly, it's only $80AUD on Nintendo Switch.
  • It is $60 on the US store. That does seem a little steep for 3 remastered games that are now so old. $20 each? Really?
  • @vikebone, considering all the technical upgrades and gameplay changes they're receiving, why not? $20 is nothing for these.
  • Lol nice price. Do they realize they’re competing with new-gen games??? This looks like trash.
  • Wow, they've actually made an effort. I wish they did for the GTA V upgrade. But €60,- is too high, will wait for a sale
  • i'd love a feature to have your own music in the game, but that's something i'm sure rockstar couldnt even get right
  • It will be on ps now btw..
  • Damn, the ps2 variants look better
  • @inonmul, Only part III
  • @stuntly lol no they don’t. And the PS2 originals sure as shit don’t control anywhere near decent, so even just making the 3 games have better controls and handling is good enough for me (though still not worth $60 imo)
  • @stuntlyd4 Think you must be blind then buddy
  • I'm honestly shocked they didn't implement GTA Online into the games.
