On October 8, Rockstar Games announced one of the worst kept secrets around. The studio has been working on Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition, a compilation of Grand Theft Auto 3, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. These three titles have been remastered with some enhanced visuals and various gameplay enhancements.

Today, Rockstar Games finally showed off some media for the three games. This includes a new trailer and three screenshots, one screen from each remastered title.

These games will be available starting November 11 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and for PC only through the Rockstar Games Launcher. A physical release for the console versions will be out on December 7. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - The Definitive Edition joins Xbox Game Pass on November 11. Grand Theft Auto 3 - The Definitive Edition joins PlayStation Now on December 7.

Just a reminder that Rockstar Games have already pulled the previous versions of these games from storefronts. It's especially annoying that they also pulled them from Steam despite the PC release being (at least for now) exclusive to their own launcher. There are some hints that these releases will hit Steam at some point, but that's still very much up in the air as no announcements have been made.

These games will now feature improvements to targeting and lock-on aiming, bringing them closer to how it is in Grand Theft Auto 5. Other improvements include a better weapon and radio station selection wheels, updated mini-maps, the ability to set waypoints, updated Achievements and Trophies, and more. The Switch release also features Gyro aiming as well as touch screen camera zooming, pans, and menu selection. The PC release will support Nvidia DLSS and Rockstar Games Social Club Accomplishments.

Visually, the games feature rebuilt lighting systems that include better shadows, weather, and reflections. There are upgraded character and vehicle models, plus higher resolution textures on buildings, weapons, roads, interiors, and more. The foliage has also been updated along with smoother surfaces and increased draw distances. Characters also have individual fingers now!
