After 3 days of withdrawal, the GTA Remaster Trilogy is back on PC

Not that definitive

Available since November 11, GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is already considered a hell of an emotional lift by players. Those who bought the compilation of remasters on PC could not enjoy it for more than 3 days, the fault of a broken rockstar launcher on release day, then to a studio decision to make the games unplayable.

Indeed, Rockstar quickly withdrew sale games, but also prevented those who had already bought it to launch them, reports Eurogamer. According to the studio, files have been included unintentionally in remasters of classic GTA games. This idle time would therefore have served to delete them.

Dataminers would have indeed found traces of the famous Hot Coffee mode from GTA: San Andreas which hit the headlines in 2004. The latter made it possible tosexual relations quite graphic with the different conquests of the game. The mode was disabled on console, and there was no no way to access it without modifying the game, but the simple fact that the code was on the wafer had created a small scandal at the time.

But that’s not all : some licensed songs that could not be included in the remasters were still present among the files of the different games. On this occasion, it is not a question of a simple gritty joke, but indeed copyright infringement. It’s a safe bet that Rockstar hurried to delete songs in question urgently.

Is this little file problem the only problem to be deplored with GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition ? Houla, no.

The compilation would be sclerotic technical problems in all senses: animations, gameplay, graphic renderings … many aspects of the different games would be broken, not to mention artistic choices that are sometimes more than doubtful. Even the different console versions would not be at crash shelter and critical issues that make the experience simply unplayable.
