Rockstar has released Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition today, giving you the chance to play all three original 3D open world GTA games, first released for the original Xbox, PS2, and PC in the early 2000s, replete with all manner of enhancements and features.
Grand Theft Auto III, GTA: Vice City, and GTA: San Andreas not only receive updated visuals with support for up to 4K resolution at 60fps on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, but you can also use a GTA V-style radial menu to select weapons and radio stations, an updated mini-map with updated navigation, and a controller layout to match the one found in GTA V.
Additionally, gunplay and targeting has been improved, as have drive-by controls for GTA: San Andreas, while auto saves and the ability to almost instantly restart failed missions makes life much easier. Updated achievement lists (1,000G per game), newly supported languages, Rockstar Social Club accomplisments, and more round out the revamped trilogy.
As for specific visual improvements, these include overhauled high-resolution textures across the board, a rebuilt lighting system, improved environmental effects, including weather, water, rain, and fog, as well as distinct changes during different times of the day. Detail in trees and foliage, alongside 3D detail for buildings and windows, and enhanced draw distances provide the cherry on top.
Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC, priced $59.99/£54.99. A physical retail edition is also slated to drop on 7th December.

We'll also have a review for you as soon as humanly possible.
