Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy — The Definitive Edition released over the past week to some rather lukewarm reception, unfortunately. The collection was half-baked, with questionable changes to the visuals and some new bugs and glitches that weren’t present in the original releases. Rockstar Games has released an official statement regarding the matter, and it involves free copies of the classic games! Read on to find out how to get GTA 3 for free!
How to Get GTA 3 For Free
To start out, the statement begins with an apology, stating that Rockstar Games is disappointed in the final product and that it doesn’t reflect their vision for the game. They’re planning for a major title update for all versions of The Definitive Edition, which will hopefully bring the game up to everyone’s expectations.
Originally, in preparation for The Definitive Edition’s launch, Rockstar removed the original PC versions of each individual game from the Rockstar Store. To make up for the botched launch, they’re re-adding the classic versions back to the store, and you can buy them together as a bundle.
Most importantly, if you already own The Definitive Edition on PC through the Rockstar Store, you’ll be receiving the original games all for free! You are not required to do anything—the games will automatically appear in your Rockstar account once they add the original versions back to the store. This offer lasts until June 30, 2022, so if you’d like to play both The Definitive Edition and the original versions of Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, this is the best way to do so.
