GTA Trilogy PC System Requirements: Can you run the new remasters?

We know Rockstar Games is in the habit of milking Grand Theft Auto V for every penny it's worth, but this is something else. The original "Grand Theft Auto Trilogy" - made up of Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, and Grand Theft Auto Vice City - is being remastered and brought to current and next-gen consoles. It is actually almost out, so now's the perfect time to check the system requirements and see if your PC can run the GTA Trilogy remasters.

PRELOADING - It's now available everywhere!

The Grand Theft Auto Trilogy remasters are dropping on November 11th and you can actually pre-load them on all platforms right now.

You can play the GTA Trilogy remasters on PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. They're also available via the Rockstar Games Launcher on PC and the Microsoft Store - San Andreas is dropping on Game Pass on Day One!

If you pre-purchase through the Rockstar Store, though, you'll get a $10 off bonus on anything priced at $15 or more. So... That might be worthwhile if you're looking into buying other Rockstar Games titles too...

Rockstar Games has shared the following...

Grand Theft Auto III

" It all starts in Liberty City. With the freedom to go anywhere and jack anyone, the ruthless world of crime is at your fingertips, if you have enough guts to take it."

Grand Theft Auto Vice City

" Welcome to the 1980s. From the decade of big hair and pastel suits comes the story of one man’s rise to the top of the criminal pile. Grand Theft Auto returns with Tommy Vercetti’s tale of betrayal and revenge in a neon-soaked tropical town full of excess and brimming with possibilities."
