Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition

Announced earlier this month, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition already has a release date.

And it’s not so far away: the collection is due to land on 11th November, just three weeks from now. It’ll be available digitally on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Switch and PC via the Rockstar Games Launcher. A physical release for PS4, Xbox and Switch will follow a little later, on 7th December.

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition packs in Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas into one bundle. These are the games you know and love, but with a suite of enhancements to bring them into the modern day.

According to Rockstar Games’ official website, players can expect:

  • New Grand Theft Auto 5-inspired controls, including improvements to targeting and lock-on aiming and an updated weapon and radio station wheel
  • Updated mini-maps with enhanced navigation
  • Higher resolution textures across buildings, weapons, roads and interiors
  • A completely rebuilt lighting system
  • Improved shadows, weather and reflections
  • Upgraded character and vehicle models
  • Environmental updates including new foliage and smoother surfaces
  • Increased draw distances
  • Updated achievements and trophies

On top of those, players on Switch will benefit from Switch-specific controls, including gyro aiming and touch screen camera zooming and menu selection. On PC, you’ll benefit from Nvidia DLSS support along with new Accomplishments in Rockstar Games Social Club.
