Free Game Added to GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition on PC; Rockstar Continues to Apologize

Rockstar Games has prepared another compensation for buyers of the PC edition of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - Definitive Edition - a free game or virtual coins.

  1. When purchasing Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition on PC we can now download one of the five games for free or gain virtual currency in Red Dead Online or GTA Online;
  2. The deal is valid until January 5.

When a publisher grants further compensation to purchasers of a title, one can reasonably doubt the game's success. Case in point Rockstar Games has prepared yet another gift for purchasers of the PC edition of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition - a free game from the company's catalogue.

It's not just any game - forget about Red Dead Redemption 2. Instead until January 5, owners of the remastered trilogy can pick up one of five titles - GTA V: Premium Edition, GTA IV: Complete Edition, Max Payne 3, L.A. Noire or Bully: Scholarship Edition. If you are not interested in any of these games, you can instead choose virtual currency in Red Dead Online (55 gold bars) or Grand Theft Auto Online (1.25 million dollars in the form of Great White Shark card).

Previously, the company let you pick up the original editions of the three games that make up the "definitive edition" of the trilogy for free. This generosity from the publisher may please those who purchased Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition on PC. Unfortunately, this is little consolation for those who were hoping for the return of the first 3D installments of the series in new glory.

Admittedly,, the collection's ratings don't come out that bad compared to, say, the scores given to games like Balan Wonderland or eFootball 2022. But is this a reason to be proud of the devs of one of the best rated and most profitable series in history? Let's hope that subsequent updates will soon (someday?) enable us to forget about the terrible reception of the day one version.
