Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition has released its first major update and it provides fixes for Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
As detailed by Rockstar, these fixes include everything from "holes in the map" to "issues with character models in cutscenes" to the shockingly awful "issue with rain visual effects" in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
As of this writing, the update is now available on PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One. We will update this story when it is released for Nintendo Switch and PC.
This is all part of Rockstar's plan to improve the quality of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition as, according to them, "the updated versions of these classic games did not launch in a state that meets our own standards of quality, or the standards our fans have come to expect."
Additionally, Rockstar has gifted everyone who owns Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition on PC the classic PC versions of Grand Theft Auto 3, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas as another way to make up for the problems. It has also made these classic versions available, once again, on the Rockstar Store as a bundle.
These issues were noticed quickly after launch, and they included quality concerns, Switch-specific problems, troubles with the Rockstar Launcher, missing elements, so much more.
In our review of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition, we said it this collection is "defective, disappointing, and surprisingly disrespectful to three classic games and their many legions of fans."
