Here’s the first look at Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition (and it’s coming up next month)

Announced not long ago, Rockstar Games is back with both the first look at, and a date for, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition.

The classics

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is exactly what it sounds like. Rockstar is bundling the first three games in the rebooted, PS2-era series as one collection.

The set includes GTAIII, Vice City, and San Andreas, and doesn’t just re-present them as-is for the hundredth time. Instead Rockstar has remastered all 3 games. And while they retain a cartoony look, the updating has them looming better than ever.

And that’s not all, as you can expect new gameplay as well. The trio of titles will sport “wide-ranging modern control upgrades”. Those will include updated weapon and radio station wheels, a new mini-map system (complete with waypoints), and a selection of Switch-specific controls. Thhink gyro aiming, and touch screen camera controls for that. Oh, and of course there’ll be new achievements and trophies.

Here’s your first taste of what the collection will offer:

Experience the games that started it all — introducing unprecedented freedom and immersion through three living, breathing worlds filled with hilarious action, rich, cinematic storytelling, classic characters, and unforgettable music. 

Bringing the classic worlds of Liberty City, Vice City, and San Andreas to modern platforms, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition debuts new GTAV-inspired modern controls, plus across-the-board visual enhancements such as resolution upgrades and improved visual fidelity across the world, and much more to faithfully tune and improve upon all three games, while also maintaining their distinct original aesthetic.
