Best of all, San Andreas – The Definitive Edition will hit Xbox Game Pass on release, while GTA III – The Definitive Edition will be arriving on PlayStation Now, giving gamers on both sides of the aisle a chance to try the remasters out.
Rockstar says all three games now enjoy modern control schemes in the vein of GTA V, with better targeting and gunplay, along with better mini-maps and weapon selection wheels. Every element of the games’ visuals has been overhauled, right down to weather effects and all-new lighting.
It’s certainly a mind-twister seeing the games in motion, looking new yet familiar, but exactly how well the art styles blend with modern gameplay will remain to be seen once we can get our hands on them.
You’ll get more detail in the environment and way longer draw distances. On PC this’ll be aided by Nvidia’s DLSS tech, while on PS5 or Xbox Series X the games will target 4K resolution at 60 frames per second for smooth and crisp gameplay.
Rockstar hasn’t wasted any time in providing us additional information about its remastered Grand Theft Auto titles, first announcing that the bundle will be released digitally on November 11, 2021, and then showing us some gameplay video.
A major update to the trilogy’s official website reveals that the bundle will cost £55 or $60, as well as highlighting some of the improvements coming to all three titles in the collection. On the 7th of December, there will be a limited physical release.
Massive upgrades to resolution and textures are immediately obvious from the trailer, as are new character models that do their best to reflect the slightly cartoonish graphics that the original games employed (getting more realistic as they went).
