Grand Theft Auto’ Remastered Trilogy Gets Release Date, New Trailer and Criticisms

Many of the fans didn’t accept the slightly-goofy art style

Rockstar Games are a long way from giving us Grand Theft Auto 6, but they did launch the trailer for  Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition. The classic games were relaunched with current-gen graphics and other improvements. However, some fans do not like the new visual style, and has remarked that they look “cartoonish” or “unreal.” The trilogy includes three PS2-era games, Grand Theft Auto 3Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

New requirements

Requirements for the games were less than expected. Each game sized up to about 45 GBs and only required at least 2 GBs of RAM. It was originally revealed that the new high-resolution textures, increased draw distances, new lighting, and modern controls. But when it came out, it resembled most games that appeared in the early 2000s, with slight enhancements. Of course, all the fans didn’t love it.

As we can see from the trailer, we can see that the game was developed by Unreal Engine 4 instead of the previous RenderWare. Players compared it to other games like Fortnite, The Sims, and Roblox, as they are games that look cartoonish and not CG animated like most modern games. Popular YouTuber Thafnine joked that Rockstar Games had “hired that man.” This was a reference to YouTubers who create fan projects uding Unity and Unreal Engine for fun.

Improvement regardless

Despite the criticisms, we can still say the games have been improved. Rockstar had always used comic-book-style artwork for every game cover, and this was the closest they got to bringing it to life. The vehicles and cities have been improved, and players can relive some nostalgic memories.

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is set to release on November 11.
