Glorious new gameplay footage captured from Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy — The Definitive Edition has leaked before it makes its official debut on consoles and PC tomorrow, November 12 — and lands on mobile next year.

The rather lengthy clips, taken from GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas, give us a closer look at the games’ improved graphics and significantly faster frame rate. They also show off some user interface enhancements.

GTA remasters look as glorious as we hoped

Rockstar Games has already published trailers and screenshots for its new remastered collection, so we had an idea of what to expect. But this leaked gameplay footage uploaded to YouTube shows us how they actually play.

There are almost 30 minutes of GTA III and Vice City to enjoy, as well as a short clip of San Andreas that was posted to Reddit. It looks like all three were captured on PlayStation, but you’ll see a similar experience elsewhere.

As Rockstar promised, the games feature significantly upgraded visuals, without straying too far from their original, PlayStation 2-era looks. They also pack other interface improvements, like the same weapon selection wheel seen in GTA V.

Rockstar has also promised improved controls, and as we can see from these clips, all three games run at at least 60 frames-per-second. That’s a big upgrade from the originals, which were capped at 30 frames-per-second.

You can also expect at least 60 FPS on Xbox and PC — and on mobile, assuming your device is powerful enough — though it’s likely the games won’t be quite as fast, or look quite as good, on the less powerful Nintendo Switch.

GTA: The Trilogy lands tomorrow

All three games, which are bundled together in Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy — The Definitive Edition make their official digital debuts on consoles and PC tomorrow, November 12. Physical versions will be available next month.

Rockstar has promised that the collection will also come to mobile device, including iPhone and iPad, sometime in 2022.
