First GTA: Trilogy - The Definitive Edition title update released

The first of many planned updates has arrived.

Rockstar has released the first GTA: Trilogy – The Definitive Edition title update.

It's a decent-sized patch too, and fixes multiple localization issues, instances of missing or misaligned collision, and more in all three games.

With GTA 3, issues with blurry camera cuts and transitions during cutscenes have been addressed, some failing missions were fixed, Claude will no longer float in the air because that's just not how things work, and the game should no longer crash after getting in your car upon completing Triad War.

Plenty of fixes have also been applied to GTA: Vice City, such as the inability to rotate the camera up or down while driving at high speeds, and an issue with the GPS route display during the mission Autocide has been addressed.

You can also expect Pay ‘N’ Spray doors to no longer prevent you from entering, the Hit Rate UI should now display correctly during a specific mission, and language settings will now be retained after a reboot on Nintendo Switch.

The list of fixes for GTA: San Andreas is a bit longer. One of the main complaints with users was an issue with rain visual effects, and this has been addressed. The camera spinning around quickly when finishing or failing Blood Bowl will no longer be of concern, and the bridge in Flint County is no longer invisible.

Correct help text will now be displayed when swimming, pedestrians will no longer appear gray or partially translucent in certain areas of the game, the legal text will now be displayed correctly, an issue with incorrect inverted controls when swimming underwater has been fixed, you'll no longer get stuck behind the Cluckin’ Bell counter, and Police Officers will no longer float before a police car spawns.

These are just some of the issues being addressed with the update, which is the first of many in the works. You can look over the full patch notes below.

Yesterday, Rockstar issues an apology for the state of the trilogy and promised it has ongoing plans to fix technical issues and improve each game.
