Grand Theft Auto’s trilogy remaster coming Nov. 11

With new controls inspired by GTA 5

Chelsea Stark (she/her), executive editor, has been covering video games for more than a decade.

Grand Theft Auto’s remastered trilogy — which includes Grand Theft Auto 3, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas — is coming digitally to a host of platforms Nov. 11, with a physical release following on Dec. 7, Rockstar announced Friday morning.

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition is more than a repackaging of all three titles, Rockstar said in its Newswire post. The updated versions will feature new aiming and shooting controls, modeled off the much smoother controls from Grand Theft Auto 5. They will also feature that later game’s weapon and radio station wheels, as well as an improved mini-map that allow players to set their destination. The updated games were worked on by Grove Street Games, who have ported many of Rockstar’s most popular titles to iOS, Android, and other platforms over the years.

Rockstar also promised updated character and vehicle models, a new weather system, and a suite of graphical improvements and resolution updates. The Nintendo Switch version will also have its own special control updates, including gyro aiming controls and touch-screen camera options.

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition comes digitally to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, the Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC (via the Rockstar Games launcher) on Nov. 11. Physical versions for PlayStation 4, Xbox platforms, and the Switch come Dec. 7. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - The Definitive Edition will also come to Xbox Game Pass on Nov. 11.
