How to play GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition on Netflix

GTA joining Netflix is via mobile only. To play them, you must have a mobile device or tablet, and you also need to be a Netflix subscriber.

Provided you fall into both categories:

  • Open up the Netflix app, and in the top right corner, hit the search icon.
    • From there, the first thing you’ll see is “Recommended Mobile Games,” which Netflix will show the GTA games.
  • Click on the game, and it’ll download the title right to your device, as well as throw a home screen shortcut for you to open the games up.

Conveniently enough, you can download each title separately instead of installing the whole Definitive Edition. You can also search for them in the App Store or Google Play directly, and install them, instead of going through the Netflix app.

As previously mentioned, GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition gives players three GTA games, GTA 3, Vice, and San Andreas, in their definitive forms. This includes updated graphics and performance, improved controls, and reworked HUD design. Reception has been very positive to date, so it might be a good idea to give it a go if you haven’t.

That’s all you need to know about playing GTA on Netflix. In the meantime, be sure to check out the rest of our GTA coverage so you don’t skip a beat.
