Rockstar Games continues its long journey after the failed launch of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition, his compilation of remasters of GTA’s PS2 episodes. This Tuesday, November 30th sees the arrival of the update 1.03, with its batch of consequent fixes intended for the console and PC versions.
Never two without three
This is the third patch update for the trilogy. The first patch had arrived in day one of the game’s launch on November 10, while patch 1.02 arrived a dozen days later. These fixes had already fixed a number of technical issues plagued by games in the collection, such as mission bugs and missing textures and collisions.
But for this version 1.03, the list of fixes is just as important – and even more. Thus, update 1.03 ensures that it has corrected the many spelling errors (!) Dotted within the games of the GTA Trilogy. These glaring faults were visible on the facade textures of buildings such as signs or street posters. Surely a result of an upscaling done without much attention, these carelessness was particularly stain in a game released in 2021.
A “novelty” also makes its introduction: the famous cinematic camera is finally back for all three games. Although not very useful in practice, this dynamic camera independently alternates between several angles of view and had been removed from the remasters during the release, without any explanation.
Fog is falling in Los Santos
We could go on for a long time to peel the patch note. We can read there adjustments related to the display of rain, the radio in the car, animations … But some details nevertheless attract attention, and they concern the episode San Andreas – the most failed, without a doubt, of this trilogy.
After complaints from players around the world, this patch introduces an option to display fog remotely – a graphic detail from the original game that was missing from the remaster. Now, the fog effect allows to hide the draft display of 3D models displayed on the horizon, and drastically improves the rendering of the game to believe by.
Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
