what to know before the release of the remaster

Here is the essential information to know before the release of the remaster of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy.

GTA VI is still far from coming, but Rockstar is a master of the art of procrastination. Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition is coming out very soon, so we’re giving you a quick recap of the pre-release essentials.

In a previous article, we already told you about this remaster which will bring together three cult episodes of the franchise: Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and the legendary Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, which marked a whole generation of players.

We already know that this trilogy will be released on November 11 on PC around 4 p.m. It will also be available on almost all consoles on the market. We will obviously be entitled to PS5 and Xbox Series X and S versions, but not only. We will also be able to enjoy this remaster on the older generation of consoles, that is to say on PS4 and Xbox One. A Switch version is also in the boxes, to the delight of fans of the PSP versions released in the 2000s.

Note, however, that this date only concerns the dematerialized version. According to Gaming Bolt, the physical version could follow in stride, around December 7.

Note that the trilogy is already available for pre-order. In addition, console players who have already checked out can already pre-load the game since last weekend; good news for the most impatient who are already in the starting blocks while waiting for the official release.

Three separate games to save space

We also note that it will be possible to split the download. If your hard drive is already a bit full, nothing will prevent you from downloading the games one by one to save space. Based on information from GameRant, Grand Theft Auto III should weigh in at just 5.2 GB. On the other hand, the other two titles are considerably heavier. According to the same source, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas weigh 10.7 GB and 22.6 GB respectively. No wonder when you know the size of the playable environment, quite simply exceptional for a 2004 game.

For fans of GTA who do not yet know how to occupy their November 11 holiday, the answer is quite found. For others, it will be a good opportunity to fill up on nostalgia while waiting for news of the 6th episode. But we should not be in a hurry; Knowing Rockstar, there is a good chance that the studio will serve us a remaster of GTA IV, or even GTA V before the sixth comes out!
