Rockstar Games will release the digital version of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition on November 11. This version is coming to PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox consoles and Nintendo Switch. A physical version will be released on December 6 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox consoles.
The release dates of the remasters can be seen in Rockstar’s online store. The games can also be pre-ordered here for sixty euros. The game is available on the PlayStation Store and the Microsoft Store. The digital versions can be played on consoles of both the previous and the current generation.
Rockstar says it has improved the lighting effects and environments for the remasters. There are also textures in higher resolution, there are improved draw distances and the games get the control and targeting of GTA V. The developer says there are “many more” improvements, but does not give any further details at the moment.
The trilogy bundle includes Grand Theft Auto III, Vice City and San Andreas. As far as we know it is not possible to buy the remasters separately. The PC version is coming to the Rockstar Games Launcher; nothing has been said about other launchers yet. Grove Street Games has ported the games. Previously, this developer made iOS and Android ports of GTA games, among other things. The developer was also responsible for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 port of GTA San Andreas. The remaster trilogy will also be coming to iOS and Android next year.
