Grand Theft Auto Remastered Trilogy Comes To PC And Consoles
After several rumors, Rockstar Games has confirmed that Grand Theft Auto III, City of vice, and San Andreas each receive HD remasters. They will be published in a package called Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition. The collection is coming to PC (via the Rockstar Games Launcher), PlayStation, Xbox and, more surprisingly, the Nintendo Switch will also host them. It will arrive on iOS and Android in the first half of 2022. Information on pricing and release date has not been shared.
The company has not explicitly mentioned the type of technical improvements made and has not yet shared any footage. But it is said that each of the games has gotten “overall upgrades, including modern graphics and gameplay enhancements.” The company has chosen to go the faithful route for its remasters, leaving “the classic look and feel of the originals” as they were presented on PS2.
In case you are someone who grew up with Grand Theft Auto V (understandable, considering he’s eight) and haven’t had an easy way to play those past influential games, this seems like a great time to get started. It may seem strange to play a Grand Theft Auto game that does not allow you to exchange between the protagonists, but the adventures of Claude, the silent protagonist of GTA III; Tommy Vercetti in City of vice; and CJ in San Andreas always worth playing.
Rockstar says we’ll find out more about the game collection in the coming weeks. But ahead of launch, it’ll start removing existing versions of every title from digital storefronts next week, so grab them back if you want before you run out of luck.
