Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition Pre-Load Now Available for Xbox and Switch
Rockstar Games has announced that those who pre-order Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition through the Microsoft Store or Nintendo eShop can now pre-load the game ahead of its launch on November 11.
For those who wish to play on either PlayStation 5 or PlayStation 4, pre-loading will begin on November 6 at 12am in your local time. Unfortunately, PC players will have to wait until GTA: The Trilogy’s release date to begin downloading the game. However, those who pre-purchase the game on PC will get “a special $10 off bonus on any product priced at $15 or more.”
Regardless of if you pre-order or pre-load, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition will be released on all platforms – PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via the Rockstar Games Launcher – on November 11 at 7am PT/10am ET/2pm GMT.
If digital is not your preferred way of purchasing a game, you can purchase a physical copy of the GTA: The Trilogy for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Switch, and PS4 on December 7.
Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is a remastered collection of Grand Theft Auto 3, Vice City, and San Andreas that will cost $59.99. These games have been created for modern platforms in Unreal Engine and will arrive on mobile platforms at a later date.
Each game comes with a “completely rebuilt lighting system; improved shadows, weather, and reflections; upgraded character and vehicle models; along with new higher resolution textures across buildings, weapons, roads, interiors, and more.” There will also be greater draw distances, new foilage, and more.
There will also be quality-of-life improvements such as implementing updated controls inspired by GTA 5, “improvements to targeting and lock-on aiming, updated Weapon and Radio Station Wheels, updated Mini-Maps with enhanced navigation allowing players to set waypoints to destinations, updated Achievements, Trophies, and more.”
If you aren’t ready to purchase these games or really only wanted one of the three, it was also announced that San Andreas – The Definitive Edition will launch into Xbox Game Pass on November 11 and Grand Theft Auto 3 will be added to PlayStation Now on December 7.
