Many Grand Theft Auto players who bought The Trilogy: Definitive Edition have been left seriously disappointed and calling for changes since launch, but what has update 1.04.5 changed? Here, we have the official patch notes.
The Trilogy’s remastered version brought back many memories from years gone by, whether it be in San Andreas, Vice City, or elsewhere. Seeing the likes of Tommy Vercetti grace screens again was a moment lots of fans were looking forward to.
Unfortunately, the Definitive Edition was released with low review scores and attracted widespread criticism, after a whole host of bugs were discovered after launch.
It has since been reported that Rockstar would shift most of its resources from the remakes and Red Dead Redemption 2 over to the development of GTA 6, the next chapter in the series. That said, fans were given a glimmer of hope this October as an update dropped out of nowhere for the games.
