What you need to know
- GTA Trilogy: The Defintive Edition had a rocky launch, but Rockstar is now issuing fixes to bring to the game up to the mark expected by fans.
- The update solves a lot of the major issues faced by gamers, but also adds the cinematic camera to all three games.
- A lot of story missions and progression issues have been patched for each individual game as well.
GTA Trilogy: The Definitive Edition launched earlier this month, and had a very bumpy start. A week later, Rockstar addressed the issue and promsied to deliver fixes to work toward making the game the true product that fans deserve.
A few days ago, Rockstar released patch 1.02 that fixed a lot of bugs, and today marks the release of patch 1.03 for all the platforms the game is on except the Nintendo Switch (the Switch patch is expected in the "coming days," according to the studio).
You can read the full list of patch notes here, but some highlights include:
- The cinematic camera has been added to all three games, a staple of the GTA Series to enhance the player experience.
- Fixing misspellings on texture art and in-game signage.
- Fixed glitches that would make rain appear indoors during cutscenes. Also fixed an issue where rain did not display correctly during stormy weather.
Along with overall fixes, Rockstar has fixed issues from individual games as well. A lot of them will help players who were having issues with story progression, so if you were unable to do a mission before (like the Gun Runner mission in Vice City), the new patch might be able to help.
Lastly, Rockstar has announced a slight delay to the physical release of the game on PlayStation and Xbox consoles. The physical release was supposed to happen on Dec. 6, 2021 for the aforementioned consoles, but the new release date is now Dec. 17, 2021. The Nintendo Switch version is set for early 2022.
