GTA Remastered Trilogy Release Date Announced? Here are the Curiosities!
GTA 3 is coming out again with Vice City, San Andreas Remastered versions. When is the GTA Remastered Trilogy release date? GTA Trilogy Remastered confirmed! This means that GTA 3, Vice City and San Andreas have been remastered in total. Information about the GTA Remastered Trilogy release date has also come to light.
Rockstar Games, mentioned for months on GTAForums, is working on a Remastered version of Grand Theft Auto 3, Vice City, and San Andreas, and each game would be developed using the same engine used to develop GTA V (the RAGE Engine). Kotaku has now learned from sources that the collection is indeed genuine and that each game has been remastered using a mix of "new and old graphics" in the Unreal Engine.
The rumors seem to be true: a GTA remastered trilogy is on the way for multiple platforms, including Nintendo Switch. Better still, it'll apparently be out this Fall.
When is the GTA Remastered Trilogy Release Date?
Rumors of Remastered edited versions of the original 3D Grand Theft Auto Trilogy have been circulating for a while, but Rockstar has finally officially confirmed that the trilogy is being worked on by Scottish subsidiary Rockstar Dundee.
The latest online leaks suggest that remastered Grand Theft Auto games will be released for free alongside the upcoming next-gen GTA V and GTA Online ports (presumably as a result of financial success). Other games that have been remastered recently), this has changed and the three games will be bundled together and sold as a bundle.
Originally the GTA Remastered trilogy was supposed to be released earlier in 2021, but they were pushed back due to the COVID pandemic.
The new expected release schedule is as follows;
GTA Remastered Trilogy Release Date for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Switch is expected to be late October / early November.
GTA Remastered Trilogy Release Date for PC and mobile could be as early as 2022.
The above release schedule is uncertain and not yet confirmed by Rockstar, but reliable sources think it's likely.
GTA San Andreas Remastered
GTA San Andreas, my personal favorite in GTA Trilogy and the most eagerly awaited Remastered, contained many RPG-lite elements that didn't even make it into later games.
Taking control of CJ Johnson from Grove Street Families, players can conquer territory from enemy gangs by recruiting random NPC gang members from the streets of Los Santos and performing car passes and the like. If you stay in the wrong neighborhood for too long, you may fall victim to an attack by an enemy gang.
If you eat too much CJ will get fat, if you exercise he will lose weight and exercise will gain strength which increases his melee damage but also decreases over time. Haircuts, outfits, eateries where you can gain/rob health, girlfriends to date and get in-game bonuses, and other side quests were much more extensive than in GTA IV or GTA V.
GTA San Andreas was the first game to feature such a wide range of radio stations as can be found in GTA IV and GTA V, and had (in my opinion) the best soundtrack of any GTA game ever.
Probably the best part of the game were the characters. Ryder, Wu Zi Mu, Catalina (technically also in GTA 3), Mike Toreno and of course Big Smoke are some of the best GTA characters in the franchise's history.
GTA Vice City Remastered
Probably the most anticipated of the GTA remasters, GTA Vice City combined the iconic '80s Miami-Vice aesthetic with classic '80s music of pastel outfits, sunny beaches and neon nightlife.
Many of the mini-games that became features of later games were available in GTA Vice City, and owning a business was a much more extended feature (e.g. the game also featured Liberty City gangster Tommy Vercetti, who actually had his own well-defined character rather than just a blank avatar of the player). It also featured the series' first ever voiced protagonist.
GTA 3 Remastered
What made Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar Games the giant they are today was GTA 3, the original reinvention of the GTA series from its top-down origins.
A truly revolutionary game. No one had seen anything like this when GTA 3 came out. Much of the game's gameplay, characters, and humor have been left behind by later chapters built on the foundation of GTA 3, but we're still excited to revisit where the 3D Grand Theft Auto games began.
