Hard to believe that the last time we had a new Grand Theft Auto game was 2013 and it looks to still be that way as Rockstar Games has been working on Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition. The three-pack includes Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. In fact, these are the same three games as Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy, which was released in 2005. You can pick up this up today for many different platforms.
Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition features an updated player experience with a GTA V-style controller layout, improved gunplay, and targeting controls.

Platform-specific features include 4K resolution support with up to 60 FPS performance for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X systems, NVIDIA DLSS support for PC, and touch screen camera zooming, pans, and menu selections as well as Gyro aiming for the Nintendo Switch.
GTA III, released in 2001 over 20 years ago so you can see why it needs a remaster. It follows Claude, a silent character as he is left for dead in Liberty City by a certain lady character you will get to know immensely in GTA: San Andreas. This game was the first time instead of the top-down view you got to see the world in 3-D.
GTA: Vice City, released in 2002 back when we got a new game in the series every year or so. Following his release from prison main character Tommy Vercetti is ambushed during a drug deal and sets out to make the people responsible paid.
