A lot of gameplay from the upcoming GTA Trilogy: The Definitive Edition has been leaked online, including over an hour of footage across Vice City and Grand Theft Auto 3.
Despite the remasters to land this week, Rockstar has been terribly shy about sharing gameplay footage. We have collected little things from the trailer, but nothing more than a few short comparison clips and intermediate sequences. The leaked footage is the first look we’ve seen at the actual gameplay for the trilogy, where a user uploads a decent portion from both Vice City and Grand Theft Auto 3 (thanks, VGC). A Reddit user also gave a very brief insight into San Andreas, including the upgraded weapon wheel.
“Aiming has a sensitivity slider now that improves shooting so much. Driving just feels a little better and everything else is just the same, but a little more polished,” the user replied to someone who asked about the quality of the game. “It’s literally San Andreas with a new coat of paint, it’s the best way to describe it.”
I’m still not completely sold on the remaster’s strange, plastic toy-like aesthetic, though most of our team seems to be digging for it. The classic rose-colored glasses mean I’ll probably still buy it, and it’s nice to finally see these games in action, even though it’s just before their release on November 11th. Rockstar has said the trilogy will include “over-the-board upgrades”, including improved graphics, updated controls, increased drag distance (thank goodness), performance and more.
