The GTA Trilogy Update 1.03 has arrived, fixing over 100 bugs with the remastered versions of GTA 3, GTA: Vice City, and GTA: San Andreas on all platforms.
It's safe to say that the launch of the GTA Trilogy has been less than ideal; Rockstar Games pulled it from storefronts shortly after release due to the inclusion of cut content and developer notes. The remastered trilogy was brought back to stores a few days later and Rockstar apologized for the state of the game on launch, but there were still a number of issues that needed to be fixed. Now, a new update has been released that tackles over a hundred issues discovered across the three remastered games.
What's New in GTA Trilogy Update 1.03?
Don't expect much in the way of new content for GTA Trilogy Update 1.03; this patch focuses on fixing issues and crashes on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox. (Unfortunately, Nintendo Switch players will have to wait a few days before they can get this update.)
All three games have gotten stability improvements. Furthermore, a number of misspellings on signs and textures have been resolved. Rockstar Games has also tackled a slightly odd problem where it could occasionally rain indoors. This indoor rain issue was most prominent in the remasters of GTA 3 and GTA: Vice City; affected locations included Donald Love's apartment and Luigi's Club in GTA 3 and during the cutscenes for the "Publicity Tour" and "Alloy Wheels of Steel" missions in GTA: Vice City.
Another subject of interest is the game's camera: all three games now have the cinematic camera available as an option. Additionally, several issues with the camera have been fixed for GTA 3's RC missions and in cutscenes in GTA: San Andreas.
Critically, a number of crashes and save game issues have also been fixed; you can read about all of the changes in the full GTA Trilogy Update 1.03 patch notes. There's still a lot of work that likely needs to be done, but it looks like Rockstar Games is making good progress; you can buy the GTA Trilogy for PC and consoles via its official website for $59.99 or your regional equivalent.
