For those who have been living under a rock the last few weeks, the GTA Trilogy: Definitive Edition is officially happening, bringing back three classics: GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas.

GTA V is still going strong in 2021, but for those who are getting slightly bored of the Online and want to dive into one of Rockstar’s great story mode games, the GTA Trilogy might just be what you’re looking for.

The new gameplay trailer showed footage of all three of the GTA games being remastered. The games are officially releasing on November 11, which isn’t too far off now, so it’s about time we saw some gameplay, and fans won’t be disappointed.

The trailer is one minute, and in true Rockstar fashion, it adds hype to the release. As well as showing off the key characters from each of the games, it also shows some iconic scenes and side characters that those who played the originals will no doubt recognize.

GTA Trilogy graphical improvements

From sunny Vice City and San Andreas to the urban environment of Liberty City, each of these games is looking great in their remastered state.

It seems the developers have not just worked on general graphics, but also atmosphere and weather, as one clip in the trailer shows Claude driving in the rain.

Further, in a scene from San Andreas, CJ is talking to the Grove Street boys, and you can see the improvement in graphics through small details such as shadows and more prominent colors.

As many will know, the GTA Trilogy will be released on all platforms: PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

Although the graphics aren’t exactly next-gen, it is great to see these original characters take on a more detailed and fresh look while also retaining their original style and aesthetic.
