- A list of achievements from Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition was leaked;
- In some of them we can see references to works of pop culture, internet creation or previous Rockstar games;
- The set of refreshed versions of three games from the GTA series is to debut later this year.
When, over a week ago, dataminers found information on Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition in Rockstar Games Launcher directories, they also managed to come across images symbolizing various achievements that can be earned while playing the refreshed versions of GTA III, GTA: Vice City and GTA: San Andreas. They were published on GTAForums by a user by the handle alloc8or. Last Wednesday the same user supplemented his earlier discovery and presented a full description of each trophy in order corresponding to the icons he posted earlier. The list can be found here, under hidden content.
When browsing through alloc8or's list of achievements, it's easy to see that the names of the achievements often allude to pop culture, various strategies for completing missions in Grand Theft Auto games, developed over the years by fans, or online creativity (which, knowing Rcokstar's approach, is not particularly shocking). While playing Vice City for example, we can earn the "Take the Cannoli" trophy for reaching the Godfather rank, which is a reference to the first part of Godfather and in San Andreas there is an achievement called "...Here we go again", awarded for starting a new game after completing the previous playthrough in 100%, referring to the words spoken by the title's main character, CJ, which have become a meme since.
Kotaku, however, is primarily concerned with the "81 Years Too Late" achievement from GTA: San Andreas. It is supposed to be a reward for spending 24 hours hiking in areas outside cities in search of Bigfoot. This is a reference to the Undead Nightmare DLC for the first Red Dead Redemption, which enabled us to hunt this legendary creature. Success earned us a trophy called "Six Years in the Making", which in turn referred to the fact that players spent six years (until the release of this cowboy production) trying to find in the Bigfoot in San Andreas. The action of this game takes place 81 years after Red Dead Redemption. Therefore, the creators decided to once again joke about this situation and made it clear that looking for Sasquatch in the remaster is pointless, because he is long dead.
According to the announcement, the achievements in Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition will be at our disposal later this year. The title will be released on PC, PS4, PS5, XOne, XSX/S and Nintendo Switch (and in the first half of 2022 also on Android and iOS mobile devices). However, the exact release date is not officially known at the moment.
