It’s already coming out on Thursday Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition, which brings remastered parts of GTA 3, GTA: San Andreas and GTA: Vice City to modern platforms. Despite this, we only saw one minute trailer comparing the visual of the original and new versions. We haven’t seen other gameplay footage yet, instead Rockstar updated the official website and added images to individual platforms.
As it seems, the worst is the version for Nintendo Switch. Due to lower computing power, Switch owners will have to do without a number of graphic effects. On the other hand, games use a gyroscope to measure, as well as a touch screen to adjust the camera zoom and menu selection.

Not even on PCs and PlayStation and Xbox consoles we can’t count on a modern graphic jacket. These are really remasters that have higher resolution, improved lighting, more detailed models of characters, environments and weapons, new textures of buildings and roads, or improved vehicles. The increased rendering distance also speaks to the overall atmosphere.

As far as the gaming site is concerned, Rockstar attracts GTA style control 5, improved aiming and aiming with improved controls for driving, an updated wheel for selecting weapons and radio stations, updated mini-maps with improved navigation that allow players to set waypoints, and the ability to immediately restart a failed mission.

Players point out the shortcomings of remasters, they are mainly bothered by strange animations, and even worse faces.
The PC version boasts support Nvidia DLSS a AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR). To play on your computer you will need at least Windows 10 64-bit, Intel Core i5-2700K / AMD FX-6300 processor, 8 GB RAM, Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 2 GB / AMD Radeon R9 280 3 GB graphics card and 45 GB free disk space. Yes, the GTA trilogy is more challenging than it is Grand Theft Auto 5, which needs a less powerful processor, a weaker graphics card and only 4 GB of RAM.
PICTURES FROM PS5 VERSION
„Three iconic cities, three great stories. Play classic games from the Grand Theft Auto trilogy, which defined the entire game genre: Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The games have been redesigned for the new generation and include a number of enhancements, including new lighting and environment, high-resolution textures, increased rendering distances, GTA 5-style controls and aiming, and more. ”
Let’s take another look at the comparison between the remastered and original versions. The pictures illustrate everything that was written above.
Grand Theft Auto 3– It all starts in Liberty City. You can go where you want and do what you want. If you have enough courage, enter the heart of the criminal world.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City– Welcome to the 80’s and experience the story of Tommy Vercetti, betrayal and revenge in the neon tropical Vice City full of brilliance, which is just waiting for you to get in it.
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas– It’s the 1990s, and when Carl “CJ” Johnson returns home, a pair of corrupt cops throw murder at him. The protagonist must travel across San Andreas to save his family and control the chaos in the streets.
TAKE-TWO: WE DO NOT WANT TO ISSUE ORDINARY PORTS
As you can see, the remasters have looked through compared to the original parts, but they are visibly lagging behind modern games. In this context, it is appropriate to recall the statement made by Strauss Zelnick. The CEO of Take-Two said this summer that his company does not want to issue simple ports like competitors. Instead, he wants to take the time to get the best work done by developers and incorporate new capabilities and technologies.
“We’re improving technology, improving the visuals and improving performance. That’s why I think our remastered titles usually do so well, “ added Zelnick.
His statement gets cracked compared to the GTA trilogy. Visually, this is not exactly what we were looking forward to when the remasters were announced. But again, Rockstar lures improved gameplay, which may be what Zelnick announced. Holt, we have to accept that these are remasters and not remakes as in the case the first Mafia.
In the end, the players themselves will show Take-Two through shopping if this is the right way to go. And what about you, do you plan to buy the Grand Theft Auto trilogy?
GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition will be released on November 11 this year on PC, PlayStation and Xbox consoles and on Nintendo Switch for plus / minus 1599 CZK.
