GTA Trilogy price

The remastered trio of Grand Theft auto games is going on sale for £54.99 / $59.99 across the board.

That goes for all platforms, regardless of the console generation it belongs to.

There is one exception – the Nintendo eShop, where it’ll retail for £49.99. The US eShop doesn’t have a price yet.

At present, there are no special editions either, making this one of the more simple pre-order situations we’ve seen in recent months.

You can also get $10 off if you order from the Rockstar Store by January 5, but that discount will be applied to your next purchase of $15 or more.

It launches digitally first, on November 11, on the following platforms:

On December 7, it gets a physical release on the following platforms:

So no physical retail release for PS5 or PC it seems, judging by the information on the official site.
