Rockstar Games will launch GTA: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition in November, but can your PC run these remastered titles? Here’s what you need to know.

Rockstar Games recently announced that the GTA: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition is set to launch in November, and the popular game developer has now revealed the minimum system requirements for the game. The remastered version of three of its most iconic older games, Grand Theft Auto III, Vice City, and San Andreas, is set to launch next month, and we now have a fair idea of what PC owners will need to be running if they want to play the game.

According to Rockstar, GTA: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition will be available in digital form for PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, and the Nintendo Switch and gamers can get it via the Rockstar Games launcher. But those who have the Xbox Games Pass will be able to pick up a single version of GTA San Andreas on November 11, when the digital versions will be released. PlayStation Now users will be able to access GTA 3 on PlayStation Now on December 7. This is when physical versions of these games are expected to land on shelves, while gamers can expect to see the mobile versions of these games in 2022.
