We Are Finally Getting A Remaster of the Original GTA Trilogy

Plus, we take a look at some of the best cars from the three titles.

Rockstar Games have announced a special ‘Definitive Edition’ remaster of three of their classic titles that hundreds of millions have played across the world.

They released the following statement on the 8th October:

“Later this month marks a very special anniversary for Rockstar Games: 20 years since the original release of Grand Theft Auto III — the game that set players loose in the sprawling, three-dimensional metropolis of Liberty City with a new and unprecedented sense of freedom and immersion. In addition to carving a new path for the open world genre, Grand Theft Auto III established Grand Theft Auto as a cultural phenomenon, alongside its two subsequent — and equally legendary — entries in the series, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.”

It will be remastered for current-gen consoles (PS4/5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC) and according to Rockstar themselves, the Definitive Edition will feature across-the-board upgrades.

This includes the standard graphical improvements as well as modern gameplay enhancements for all three titles, while still maintaining the classic look and feel of the originals.There is no specific release date just yet, but GTA: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition will release later this year, followed by iOS and Android in the first half of 2022.

In celebration of the long-awaited news, let’s have a look at the classic cars we can expect to see upgraded in high definition.

Grand Theft Auto III

Bravado Banshee

Bravado Banshee

While it has been in every game since, we first saw the Banshee on the streets of Liberty City in GTA III. Resembling a first-generation Dodge Viper RT/10, it features an open top with dual exhausts and curvilinear design.

Grotti Cheetah

Grotti Cheetah

Modelled after the Ferrari Testarossa, the Cheetah has been one of the most prominent supercars featured in the Grand Theft Auto series since the third. While the Cheetah's acceleration is slightly inferior to other sports cars in the game, it makes up for it in handling, speed and braking where it is far superior.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

Declasse Voodoo

Declasse Voodoo

Not the fastest car on the list, the Voodoo is all about style. The luxury two-door lowrider is modelled off the 1960 Chevy Impala and only appears in red. The car also introduced the hydraulics mechanic into the game, one that would become more utilised in GTA: San Andreas.

Pegassi Infernus

Pegassi Infernus

My personal favourite on the list, what other car would you want to be racing up and down the beaches of Vice City in? Loosely based on the Jaguar XJR-15, the Infernus claims the title of the fastest car in the whole trilogy.

Grand theft auto: san andreas

Monster Truck

Monster Truck

The list wouldn't be complete without a wacky one in there somewhere. First seen in a mission in Tierra Roboda, messing around in the Monster Truck is one of the best and most fun ways to waste a whole evening of your life - with no regrets.

Pfister Comet

Pfister Comet

One of the most easily recognisable cars in the GTA Universe, the Comet aka Porsche 911 has been a fan favourite for a number of years now. If you take it to a TransFender garage, you can make it look and drive even better too...
