GTA Trilogy Remastered is likely to make a big splash when it launches later this year.
The upcoming bundle contains new and improved versions of Grand Theft Auto 3, Vice City and San Andreas.
And judging by a recently deleted post by developer Rockstar, there’s one improvement that should go down particularly well with fans.
According to the official description, GTA Trilogy Remastered will feature new and improved controls.
The post suggests the updated controls will feel similar to the controls used in Grand Theft Auto 5.
This should make it far easier for GTA 5 fans to jump in and enjoy the action, without feeling stuck.
Furthermore, the remastered trilogy will feature a similar targeting mechanic to Grand Theft Auto 5.
The description – which you can see below – points out some of the other improvements, such as high-resolution textures and draw distances.
“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 across-the-board enhancements including brilliant new lighting and environmental upgrades, high-resolution textures, increased draw distances, Grand Theft Auto V-style controls and targeting, and much more, bringing these beloved worlds to life with all new levels of detail.”
Rockstar is yet to announce an official release date, confirming only that the trilogy will launch in 2021.
The launch of GTA Trilogy Remastered kicks off what is a busy time for the Grand Theft Auto franchise.
GTA Online will mark the anniversary of GTA 3 by adding new items and events.
“As part of the 20th anniversary celebration for GTA III, look for a cavalcade of special gear to collect in Grand Theft Auto Online throughout upcoming events this Fall, including commemorative clothing and liveries.”
This will be followed by the release of GTA 5 on next-gen consoles such as PS5 and Xbox Series X.
The upgraded version of GTA 5 will feature improved visuals, speedier load times and smoother gameplay.
