Rockstar Games hasn't ended the year on the best footing with fans. After an appalling launch last month, the beloved company was forced to admit it screwed up Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition in a big way.
The collection, which includes remasters of GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas, was almost immediately pulled from sale on PC during the launch weekend. As a result, Rockstar was flooded with complaints and refund requests over the state of the game. The trilogy even briefly ended up as the worst-rated game of 2021.
Take a look at some of the, er, funnier moments in the GTA Trilogy below...
Rockstar has since issued an apology, and has already released the first in a line of updates that aim to drastically improve the state of all three games.
Clearly realising it needed to do more, it then gifted the original versions of GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas to PC users for free, and has now confirmed that those who purchased the trilogy on PC can download one additional Rockstar game at no extra cost.
From now until January 5, PC users can redeem one of the following titles: Grand Theft Auto V: Premium Edition, Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition, Max Payne 3, L.A. Noire or Bully: Scholarship Edition. Players can also grab Virtual Currency, which can be used in either Grand Theft Auto Online or Red Dead Online. That is, of course, essentially Rockstar giving money back to itself... but I guess it's the thought that counts?
Anyway, that's not a bad lineup of free games, right? There can't be many people left on the planet who don't own GTA V, but this is your chance to claim it if it somehow passed you by repeatedly over the last eight years. I'd also recommend the excellent L.A Noire - but the choice is entirely yours.
