The new graphic restyle of the Grand Theft Auto contained in GTA Trilogy did not please many players. And the net of the technical problems, the new look of the open-world made in Rockstar cannot be changed out of the blue, or at least it is not in the priorities of the development team. Despite this, some modders are really trying. And the mission statement is certainly particular.
The case of GTA Trilogy is decidedly particular, at least in this respect: the games from Rockstar Games are in fact receiving the opposite treatment from modders. Instead of being technically improved, the users of these mods are trying in every way to make them more similar to the original versions of the early 2000s. And that’s quite a contradiction, considering that the Grand Theft Auto titles have always been modded. to be decidedly more photorealistic and much closer to reality, but the development choices probably affected this decision.
Of note, as the most curious and bizarre mod, is definitely the Reshade of Vice City. The chapter with Tommy Vercetti, one of the most iconic protagonists of the entire saga, has in fact been subject to a total re-shade, which however does not push the title contained in GTA Trilogy to become more beautiful. Rather, it transforms it and makes it much more similar to the PlayStation 2 version, within the technical limits that a modder can do by not having access to the original models of the classic games of the time. Graphics mod that brings the graphics settings of Vice City back to life originally for PS2 reads the description of the mod.
Beyond this initiative, it is good to remember that it is not yet certain what will happen to these new mods of GTA Trilogy. In fact, over the past few months, Take-Two Interactive has been busy reporting a large number of mods for Grand Theft Auto for copyright infringement. The possibility, therefore, that the same thing will happen again in the short term is quite high. In case you are interested, our advice is to go to Nexus and download them before it’s too late.
