This morning, Rockstar revealed the release date of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy—Definitive Edition. The much anticipated remaster of Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas will release Nov. 11. on PS4 and PS5, the Xbox family of consoles, and PC via Rockstar’s proprietary launcher.
What’s more, the trilogy will see a physical release on consoles Dec. 7, retailing for $59.99.
A new gameplay trailer, shown above, reveals some of the updated features fan can expect later this year. Grove Street Games, who handled development of the upgrades, boasts “GTAV-style” controls, improved gunplay, and smaller updates to make the games feel more modern—like the ability to immediately restart a failed mission. Using Unreal Engine, textures were overhauled across the board while foliage renders in more detail. Along with a new lighting system and enhanced depth of field, the graphics fidelity is noticeably improved.
There are some system specific innovations as well. The trilogy will run at 4K 60FPS on PS5 and Xbox Series X, while PC will support NVIDIA DLSS, for PC users who have a GTX series card. And the Switch is getting touch screen camera and UI controls as well as gyro aiming.
Twitter quickly noticed that the original versions available on consoles and PC were quickly delisted. This is now the only way to purchase these Grand Theft Auto games.
San Andreas will make it to to Game Pass on launch day, while PS Now will get GTA III on Dec. 7. Additionally, versions for iOS and Android are due early 2022.
