Yes Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition was a boat, it would have already sunk after all the recent leaks. First, there was the leaked rating information, then leak of achievements. Now, more details of how the game will play out, the art of the box and its apparent PC specs have crept into the wild as well.
Kotaku first reported on the then-rumored GTA trilogy remasters in August. Later on October 8, after foreign odds information leaked the existence of the game, Rockstar Games has finally announced the GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition with a small teaser, confirming that the package will contain GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas. Since then, Rockstar hasn’t shared any new details about the upcoming collection, other than a few vague information shared in a post on a news wire, where he explained that the trilogy will contain updated visuals and “modern gameplay improvements”.
But, thanks to dataminers, we now know more about this highly anticipated collection.
On GTAForums, user alloc8or shared a description and a support article that have not yet been published found buried in Rockstar servers whose references have improved, GTA V-Like controls as well as other improvements. (Alloc8or also disclosed the accomplishments earlier this week.)
“Three iconic cities, three epic stories. Play the genre-defining classics of the original Grand Theft Auto trilogy: Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas updated for a new generation, now with overall improvements including brilliant new lighting and environmental upgrades, high-resolution textures, increased drawing distances, Grand Theft Auto V-style controls and targeting, and much more, bringing these beloved worlds to life with all new levels Retail.
The description does mention three iconic cities, which seems odd considering GTA San Andreas actually contains three cities, not one. But I think Rockstar only counts the whole state as one city so they can use that admittedly nice marketing line of “Three Iconic Cities, Three Epic Stories”.
The same user also found more text that spoke of a limited-time deal that Rockstar games might have for people who buy the remastered collection on its own PC launcher.
“By purchasing Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition at store.rockstargames.com or the Rockstar Games Launcher by January 5, 2022, you will receive a $ 10 discount on your next purchase through Rockstar Games Launcher or Rockstar Web Stores on qualifying products $ 15 or more (exchange rates apply). Rebate expires January 16, 2022 “
The January 5, 2022 deadline seems to be a perfect match to what I’ve heard and others about a possible November release of the collection, which is expected to hit Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, PS5, PS4. , Switch and PC later this year.
But wait, there is more information leaked! This same user, alloc8or, dug up what appears to be the game’s PC specs. (Some people have pointed out that Intel processors seem wrong, but it seems to be a typo.)
-Intel Core i5-2700K / AMD FX-6300
– Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 2 GB / AMD Radeon R9 280 3 GB
– 8 GB of RAM
– 45 GB of storage space
– Intel Core i7-6600K / AMD Ryzen 5 2600
– Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 4 GB / AMD Radeon RX 570 4 GB
– 16 GB of RAM
– 45 GB of storage space
What’s interesting is that it looks like the entire collection will take up around 45GB of space. In comparison, the three original versions of III, City of vice, and San Andreas is only 5 GB on PC. Maybe some bigger, better quality uncompressed audio and textures bloat the size so much?
Oh, and because at this point everything but the actual game has leaked, another user on the GTA forums was able to locate the box art for games on Rockstar’s asset servers. They’re not very exciting, but that’s yet another thing that leaked ahead of schedule.
At this point, as the hype gets bigger and bigger for these remastered games, it looks like the next thing most fans want is gameplay footage and screenshots. And I suspect we’ll get them ASAP, whether it’s from Rockstar or a specific dataminer.
