Rockstar has just announced that the classic/original PC Version of GTA 3, GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas will be, once again, available for purchase. The team claimed that these classic games will be available as a bundle on Rockstar Store soon. However, there is no word yet on whether these classics will return to Steam.
What this means is that PC gamers will be able to get these classics and mod them. So, let’s hope that these re-releases of the original PC games won’t have any ridiculous restrictions that will break compatibility with all the existing mods for them.
In addition, Rockstar claimed that this bundle will be available for free to those that have purchased Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition. This free offer will last until June 30th, 2022.
As Rockstar stated:
“We will be adding the classic PC versions of Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas back to the Rockstar Store shortly as a bundle. Additionally, everyone who has purchased Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition for PC from the Rockstar Store through June 30, 2022, will receive these classic versions in their Rockstar Games Launcher library at no additional cost. We will update everyone as soon as these are back in the Rockstar Store.”
Lastly, Rockstar is working on updates that will fix most of the major technical issues that currently plague GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition.
