New Grand Theft Auto The Trilogy HD Texture Packs Add Sharpen Filter, Increase Shadow Resolution, and Overhaul Textures


New Grand Theft Auto The Trilogy HD texture packs have been released for PC players, further improving the visuals of this remastered collection.

Last week, we already covered some of the first mods for this remastered trilogy, and we now have the very visual enhancement packs for the collection. Created by modders ‘QTmodz’ and ‘Instanity666’, these HD texture packs improve the road textures in Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, while greatly enhancing the visuals in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Aside from overhauling the textures in San Andreas, the “Natural Visuals” mod for San Andreas, adds a sharpen filter, and increases shadow quality, further improving the visuals of this remastered version of San Andreas. Down below you’ll find a video of this modification in action.

As always, be sure to follow the installation instructions.

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition is available now across PC, and consoles. The remastered collection was released earlier this month. Unfortunately, the game is in pretty bad shape across all platforms, but Rockstar Games promised improvements. A new patch, addressing numerous issues, was released over the weekend.

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition features across-the-board enhancements such as GTAV-inspired modern controls, graphical and environmental upgrades including higher resolution textures, enhanced lighting and weather and more, bringing the iconic locations of Liberty City, Vice City, and San Andreas to the latest platforms, honoring the experience of the original titles while enhancing them for a whole new generation of players.

Originally developed by Rockstar Games, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition has been adapted to modern platforms by Grove Street Games using Unreal Engine to make these classics more vibrant and more immersive than ever.

All three games included in Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition also feature platform-specific enhancements including Gyro aiming and touch screen camera zooming, pans and menu selections on the Nintendo Switch, 4K-resolution support with up to 60 FPS performance for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X systems, and NVIDIA DLSS support for PC.
