What games are in the GTA Trilogy?

Get ready to play through three huge games that will take some time to get through. The question of what comes in the GTA trilogy has been answered and it will be comprised of GTA 3, GTA San Andreas and the sun-soaked GTA Vice City.

GTA Trilogy Remaster changes

We know the answer to the question, has the GTA trilogy been remastered? Yes, it has, but how good does it look? The remaster has been done through the Unreal Engine and while it is not the all-out next-gen remake that many were hoping for - imagine Vice City with GTA 5 level graphics! - they still look far better than they did originally.

The colour is the main thing you will notice at first as the games look brighter and more vibrant than ever. Camera angles have been changed, a huge relief with how clunky they feel now, and the gameplay itself has had something of a revamp to bring it more in line with how GTA 5 plays.

Is the GTA Trilogy on Game Pass?

This is where things get a little bit complicated. No is the official answer - you won't be able to play the entire GTA Trilogy remaster on Xbox Game Pass or any other membership club, but you will be able to experience part of it.

Xbox Game Pass users will be able to play the remaster of San Andreas on 11th November, while PlayStation owners who have signed up to PS Now will be able to get GTA 3 remastered on the same day.

Those who love Vice City will have no option but to buy the bundle as that is not showing up on any Game Pass like service - for now at least.
