Rockstar Games unveiled a trailer for the remastered Grand Theft Auto trilogy, including GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas on Friday. The trailer displayed many graphical and quality-of-life enhancements made to each game.
Grove Street Titles remastered each of the three games. According to Rockstar, it employed Unreal Engine and a "fully revamped" lighting system, and the graphical enhancements appear to affect nearly every aspect of the games. The list given in Rockstar's press statement features improved shadows, weather, and reflections, as well as updated character and vehicle models. There are "higher resolution textures across buildings, weapons, roads, interiors, and more," as well as improved draw distances, smoother surfaces.
Each game will use Grand Theft Auto V-style controls, according to Rockstar Games. This would help make the games more contemporary. Targeting and lock-on aiming have been reworked in each game. In addition, each game has different weapon and radio station wheels, as well as mini-maps that allow players to choose waypoints and locations.
There are also some platform-specific improvements. Rockstar integrated gyroscopic aiming to the Nintendo Switch, and the touchscreen can be used to zoom and pan with the camera, as well as make menu selections. The PC edition (a 45GB download) includes Nvidia's DLSS technology, which allows games to run more smoothly on a wider range of graphics cards without sacrificing visual quality.
The Definitive Edition collection for Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy will be available digitally on November 11th for $59.99 (£54.99). The Rockstar Games Launcher will let the user play them on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One, the newer Series X/S consoles, and PC. Physical copies will be available on December 7th, with iOS and Android versions following in the first half of 2022.
On launch day, Xbox Game Pass customers will have immediate access to Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas — The Definitive Edition. On December 7th, Grand Theft Auto III: The Definitive Edition will be available on PlayStation Now.
