Earlier today we finally got our first look at Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition.
Not seen the trailer yet? Take a look at it. Now. Adapted for modern platforms by Grove Street Games using the Unreal Engine, Grand Theft Auto III, Vice City and San Andreas all look better then ever before thanks to a rebuilt lighting system, upgraded character models and whole lot more. Even the controls have been reworked so that they’ll be familiar to those who have spent hours playing Grand Theft Auto V.
Though if you’re an Xbox gamer and are only interested in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, you might be happy to hear that you won’t have to buy Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition to play it.
The Rockstar website has revealed that Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas will be included in Xbox Game Pass on the day of its release – 11th November. So, if you’re already a subscriber, you’re all set to revisit the open world epic next month or play it for the first time. If not, you can either buy Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition for £54.99/$59.99 to play it, or take the plunge and become an Xbox Game Pass subscriber.
While Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas – The Definitive Edition being available on its own via Xbox Game Pass suggests that each game in the trilogy might be available separately, Rockstar has not yet indicated that’s the case in any way. So, it may be that if you want to also play Grand Theft Auto III – The Definitive Edition and/or Grand Theft Auto: Vice City – The Definitive Edition, you’ll have to buy Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition. That would be a bit daft, but we’ll have to wait and see.
