Based on leaks, the game is scheduled for a November 2021 release. In this article, we are going to showcase GTA Trilogy: Definitive Edition system requirements for PC.

1 - GTA Trilogy: Definitive Edition system requirements for PC

The system requirements of the upcoming GTA Trilogy remastered have been leaked by the GTA fan forum, with people spreading the word on Twitter. Here are the minimum and recommended system requirements to run GTA Trilogy: Definitive Edition.

Minimum requirements:

  • Intel Core i5-2700K / AMD FX-6300
  • Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 2GB / AMD Radeon R9 280 3GB
  • 8 GB RAM
  • 45 GB Storage Space
  • Windows 10

Recommended specs:

  • Intel Core i7-6600K / AMD Ryzen 5 2600
  • Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 4GB / AMD Radeon RX 570 4GB
  • 16 GB RAM
  • 45 GB Storage Space
  • Windows 10

Overall, in 2021's standards, these system requirements are not too demanding. However, this completely takes the game out of the low-end gaming zone. The minimum requirements of 8GB of ram and 2 to 3GB of VRAM are needed to run the game on Unreal 4, the new engine from Epic. Low-end players probably will need to upgrade their gaming rig if they want to experience GTA Trilogy: Definitive Edition.

2 - Is GTA Trilogy: Definitive Edition cross-platform?

Besides the upcoming PC/Console release, the GTA Triology remastered game has just been confirmed for iOS and Android. Apparently, it might comes out somewhere in the first half of 2022. Apparently, the Rockstar studio that worked on GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition has already completed the PC/Console version and is currently working on the mobile version.

Additionally, to prepare for GTA Trilogy's coming, Rockstar has also removed all the older versions from Digital Retailers. While we can always download the old versions from a pirate site somewhere, there is no way to pay to get them anymore.

3 - What will be the differences between GTA remastered and original?

According to Rockstar Games, here's what to expect from the upcoming Triology remasters:

Graphical upgrades

The new remastered trilogy will feature graphical improvements across the board for all three titles. Furthermore, they will also maintain the look and feels of the original games. Overall, with the system requirements being this formidable, it is expected that GTA Trilogy: Definitive Edition would look super good.

Modern gameplay enhancements

As the original came out a long time ago, their controls were super clunky, especially in special sequences like remote controlling a plane. Therefore, the remastered is going to completely fix that issue. Furthermore, they are going to streamline the gameplay of all three tittles so that players will have a streamless transition.

Based on Rockstar's focus on remastering graphics and gameplay, new content is going to be minimal. The games are old after all, with the code base likely gone.
